2017 | Trans-PA Trail - Vertical Edition | 9-10 Sept (CANX)

Post by Rut Row » Fri Oct 28, 2016 11:55 am

Date set for 9-10 Sept. May meet at a camping spot Friday night for an early start Saturday.

If everyone wants to slide it to the following weekend (16/17) I'm game. Final decision to be made when we get closer.

Anyone interested in a mild DS ride on a weekend?

Noye, the 7-Mountains DS is the same weekend.

Looks fun.
Ill have to look closer at the map but Im pretty sure Ive ridden some of that before.

I read the little ADV thread on it. Looks like a nice ride doable on any bike, but probably best on a DR650. Or a FZ09 with TKC80s if you are odd.

played around with the track this morning. Looks like it is a 3-day trip. Two days north then one day to get home.

This is not suitable for Skinny-J or anyone looking for more than gravel roads, good company and nice scenery.

I guess if you don't stop much then it is a 2-day ride

Tony, Thanks very much for the route. I rode it last weekend on Fri/Sat (probably not the best time due to rain). I left around 11am on Friday and got to the start a little after 1pm. Stopped for the night in Millheim around 6:30ish then did the rest on Saturday from 6-11:30. There were a couple small detours of no real consequence, one of which put me onto a bike path driving with a bunch of (I assume) boy scouts. Only disappointment was the weather. I knew it was going to rain and frankly was surprised it wasn't when I woke up Saturday but I made it a couple hours before the rain started. Most of the unpaved was not really much worse wet except one part that seemed really soft and it felt like I was on sand and figured I was going down shortly. I had originally planned a whole nice route back but by the time I got to the end and checking the weather of basically rain all day I said F it, hopped on 15 South and was home by 3:30.
