The good weather has had me thinking a lot about this years cycle trips. At some point, myself and few others are looking at taking a trip up through upstate New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, and possibly Maine. Anyone reading this have any good recommendations for camping spots, roads to take, swimming holes, sights worth […]
I’m looking for more spots to ride dirt bikes around Philly. Comment and let me know if you know of anything else that is in the city limits or super close by in PA… not NJ. Also, comment if you know anything more about those spots I mention as I don’t know too much about […]
Adam and I are doing this trip beginning August 9th to the 25th. Should be pretty fun to see the upper peninsula of Michigan and all the great lakes. We’ll be taking mostly back roads, a couple ferry’s, and just living free. Let us know if you know of anything cool along the way to […]

This is the original Fairmount loop. It takes about 25mins. It’s still my favorite. Basically, you ride east Fairmount park, cross over the Strawberry mansion bridge to West Fairmount, then do the hill up to the Hostile. Then go down Belmont plateau. Then, Mann Music center tight hill. Then backtrack to Strawberry mansion bridge again, […]
I get emails every now and then from random people asking what good routes we have to ride in Philly. I’m going to start compiling a list of some of the routes we do. If you have any good suggestions… email me. The below route goes to Conshohocken on rt23. Crosses over the river. Then […]
