This is the camp where most of stages will start from. awesome accomidations . very cool scene

This past weekend kuhndog and i headed up to state college to get a feel on some logistics for the stage race next year that is over memorial day week.( see link on side of blog) We met up with sue from who got a good feel for what we are going to pull off for the stage race and why a race like this is needed in the northeast. We took a tour of the camp ground which will have everything from camping to daycare. there are cabins or tenting plots, rv spots(maybe with a hookup)a pool, playground, helicopter pad, a lake, dining hall, showers , first aid station,and we are even trying to pull off a communication station with wifi. yes it will be bada$$. As for the riding. well, we got a loop together already for the time trial and i believe it will not disappoint . It has a nice mix of singletrack and gravel road and nothing is too difficult. On sunday sue, kuhn, and i did another 3hr loop along a ridge (pictured somewhere here) which was amazing. Had killer flow and the options for a fun lines were endless. most of the trails we did on sunday will be part of one of the other stages. i'm giddy already
