Pennsylvania Amish Country

Well I found Paradise.... no seriously, Paradise, PA

If your in the area then you probably know about all the non traveled farm roads in Lancaster county. I've been to lancaster as a kid, but now that im at school 30 min away, its a daily trip. And im not gonna tell you exactly where (im greedy), just get on 896, then eenie - meenie - miny - moe... pick a road off 896 and enjoy. Just watch out for the horse manuer and runaway cows (happened to me)

Gave up the bike to see the world. Knowing how to ride well will come in handy im sure on some road in the jungle.

Watch the horse sh!t on the roads! Those amish buggies and the worse polluters of all.

Also, there were at least 2 fatalities on those roads last year from runs to Epheta (same group of riders who leave from DE). Don't push yourself or they'll bite you.

Yea once you leave any major road... the road conditions are down right horrible. Which is why i take it slow back there, wouldnt want to skid and land face first into a pile of cow sh!t

Dumped in Mule Dung

I lost it on a curve on 896 East of Strasburg. Leaning into a turn when I came upon an Amish Farm wagon. Laid the bike on its side and slid through the Mule manure. Miss riding those roads -- but live in California now so I get to ride to work every day!
