The name's Brett, I live in Norristown which is about 45 minutes outside of China Town in Philly.

I'm going to be moving to North Hollywood in september and I want to get some killer rides in before I have to leave. I've covered a lot of the area down Route 23 out near lancaster and some of the pottstown area, but I know there is tons of awesome spots to rip through.

You've gone to Pottstown, ever been to Gear Jammers? Nice ride to get there just past Pottstown.
The owner is from Norristown. Friday nights its pretty laid back up there. Fire pit, outside bar with cheap drafts..
Usually a few bikes.

I work for Shaner Propane up in Sanatoga, so anytime i have to go up 724 to make delieveries I pull into the gear jammers to have a cigarette(not while i'm sitting in my 6 wheeled bomb). The place seems pretty sweet. I'll have to check it out one night.

That whole section of 724 is a pretty fun ride. From the conventry mall, to route 80 I think only have 1 traffic light, and I rarely see cops sitting back there. I highly recomend it.

For sure man, I havn't really explored too much that way. I have a buddy who's parents live in Mahoning valley(i think thats more carbon county then Lehigh), and that's a pretty sweet ride. cruising 309 can be pretty cool...at 3 o'clock in the morning. Isn't there a lot of swap meets going on up your way this summer?

Im down that way now. Its FN hot as hell. Not missing anything.There is a bike night wed. Near 73 and 202 if you want to ride out. Bike nights are sorta beat, but it gives ya a place to ride in the middle of the week and they have cold beer.

Yo. There is a ride on Saturday. It starts and ends at GearJammers up in Douglasville.
We are going to meet at the Black Horse around 10:30 or so.
Hits 4 or 5 stops and heads back to Gearjammers for a pig roast, bands...
Should be allot of bikes and a good day of riding if anyone is down. I think its like 20 bucks a person. Its a benefit for a kid who lost his old man.

Does anyone know if the Violators Car Club is doing their annual show at Maple Grove?
I went last year and it was pretty awesome. Everyone I rode in with got in for 5 bucks, and put us in the show. Even my girlfriends 81' firebird got in for free because it met show requirements.

I'm going to Ride to Skate. I'm in Delaware. I went to it a few years ago, they had a couple bands playing, it was a good time. I'll be bringing my board, but I'm nowhere near as good as some of the FDR regulars. Those guys rip. I'm one of those dorks that puts around and gets in the way of the rippers. But I try...
