Frozen Fat, Day 3: Shoreline Shenanigans.

If Saturday’s ride is at all serious, Sunday’s is anything but. Rather, it’s wheelies and derbies, costumes and skipping stones. It’s a party on bikes, no endurance needed. There are lots of stops, laughs, and log ride attempts. And everyone wins.

The venue changes from Rothrock State Forest and Martin Gap to the Allegrippis Trails at Raystown Lake. This year, just like last, the lake was lowered so the shoreline was exposed and incorporated into the ride. Fun times were had all around, even when it began to rain.

We began by bombing down Osprey…

Wound along Hyrdroloop…

 And bushwacked down to the lakeshore, where stone-skipping commenced.

Some impromptu wrestling also happened, which ended with some wet feet but fortunately not much else.

We rode on the shore of the lake from the tip of Hydroloop almost to Susquehannock Campground. A brave few tested the ice in the inlet (I don’t necessarily condone trying this).

At the end of the shoreline section of the ride, we all stopped for a while to commune and dabble on the several nearby rideable features.

 There were some log ride attempts…and fails.

But all who attempted finally were successful.

More communing…and dabbling…

 Finally, we headed back towards the parking lot.

 The last couple miles were quite cold for Brent.

 And Jake took a Sharpie to his bare skin.

Mmmm…parking lot massage stick.

 Frozen Fat was awesome. Thanks to all the people who made it so great! See y’all next year!
