Not only did I almost die twice in Bethlehem, I almost died twice in a matter of seconds! Let me give you a little background first before I get into how I managed that feat. It wasn’t long after I originally found Posh that I began making regular pilgrimages up to the trails mecca that… Continue reading Story Time: How I Almost Died In Bethlehem, Twice!
So last night I sat down and did something I haven’t done in a good ten years. I read a magazine straight through cover to cover. I amongst a slew of other people have been anxiously waiting to get our hands on the new issue of Dig which is an all trails issue, well kind… Continue reading Now, I’m No Marketing Genius…
Anyone who knows me knows that I’m quite fond of a good prank. Every year when Halloween rolls around I’m reminded of quite possibly the greatest prank that I’ve ever had the pleasure of being involved in. The year was 1996 and I was a junior in high school. There were only a handful of… Continue reading Story Time: The Poopkin
Today was a weird day. I was expecting to go about my normal routine of work then digging, but that didn’t quite happen. Instead I decided to take a day off from the trails to go ride around the city with some friends from out of town. It was nice to do something a little… Continue reading Holy Shit It’s Our 1000th Post!
Trails live and die by water, and one of the most important jobs at any set of trails is how you manage it. Whether that be planning out drainage, tarping the jumps, or in this case gathering and storing water. I’ve seen more than a few sets of trails fall into disrepair and eventually be abandoned due… Continue reading The Water Catcher
Last week we had an incident where the google aerial view and coordinates of our trails were posted on Facebook by some cyclocross guys. Our trails aren’t exactly top secret or anything but we do try to limit who all knows their location. Mainly it’s to not raise the attention of anyone living in the surrounding… Continue reading Story Time: How I Found Posh & Drexelbrook
So the other day I noticed that we were creeping up on our 500th post. I’m kind of blown away honestly! If you told me back in July that in just five months we would be making our 500th post I would have looked at you like you had an upside down face. I knew there… Continue reading Holy Shit It’s Our 500th Post
The first real trails I ever built were at an abandoned gravel pit in Maryland. I guess there was a good bit of sandy clay they had to move before getting to the rocks they were after because there were two humongous piles of it just down the road from the pit. Slowly but surely… Continue reading Indoor Pump Tracks, Mentally Challenged Workers, and My First Trails
That bad boy above is Bob Haro’s newest project the Ikonix SX1. I don’t know much about it or really care, but it did get me thinking about some of the wild shit I’ve seen people show up at trails with. Thanks to BMXmuseum I was able to find examples of all of them! Follow… Continue reading The Things People Ride
I spotted this on Groove Merchants awhile ago and it really took me back. I can’t think of a more fitting first post then one about the place that really started it all for me. I can still vividly remember the feeling I got the first time I walked up the hill from the parking… Continue reading Numero Uno
