Rothrock-er

25 07 2018

I have ridden in Rothrock Forest , State College a number of times since the single speed worlds in 2005.

The riding here is rocky, intense and generally awesome.

I made good friends with some of the guys who live here and have met others over the years of visiting, or passing through en route to Harrisonburg, VA or elsewhere.

On day 2 or 3 I destroyed a maxxis Ikon but lets be serious, I was under-tyred for following a talented local into the chundery rock gardens. The replacement, a maxxis DHR has been amazing and not too draggy when I have needed to use dirt or sealed roads.

I purchased the tyre from Freeze Thaw Cycles, a superb shop filled with a knowledgeable and helpful team of staff and mechanics.

It also has a Grove Innovations museum! well worth a visit!

The Police bike lacked the doughnut holder that came with it – apparently they were thrown away by the non-plussed bike cops who used the bikes!

The bike has been a delight to pilot through these trails. Plus tyres are a real boon for rocky riding if you want to go hardtail or even rigid. A year on, and I wouldn’t change a thing on this bike. It is unreal.

So, a few scuffs have been added along with a bunch of smiles, brews and memories.
