I joined my friends from NJ, Gerry and Susan, for a ride in Wissahickon Park in Philly. It’s always fun to just play on rocks and logs and goof around in the woods.
I haven’t ridden in Wissahickon for a few years, but my friends Chad and Rob have been hyping these trails for a couple of weeks.
The sections that we rode were chock full of jumps, drops, long log rides and berms. A playground for peddlers, the “BMX bowl,” has a drop into, and launches out of it, and a bunch of doubles, log jumps and giant tabletop.
I now have some new New Year’s resolutions…
- Do the drop into the bowl
- Jump the big gap that Rob did
- Get in better shape and keep up with PMBA guys who built the trails
