Thumbs up Central (somewhat) PA Riding

I'm new to PA (well, first time i've lived in the state for 4 years) and havn't really been out riding at all, cept to and from work. I'm trying to find some riding partners and some good places to ride. I live in Northumberland County, which is 50 miles north of harrisburg (selinsgrove, sunbury, danville, northumberland, bloomsburg is 20 miles down the road). anyone interested in ridin, lemme know and i'll coordinate w/my girlfriend and which one of us is watching the kids. oh yeah, i don't care to get TOO wild (which means i hope you know the area we are riding and all the cop hangouts), but if the cops start after us, i'm runnin, i don't need any more tix.

I rode up your way once. We were at Junction Rte. 501 & US 78 Rte. 125 & Rte. 501

Start in Shamokin, take Rte. 125 south to Rte. 501, take 501 south to US 78. 125 is tight twisties, 501 is rolling hills and twisties.


Go to http://www.execpc.com/~ytk/ for more roads.

Also there are some nice roads that I take to get to Knobles Amusment park, which is a great park to visit. I done the roads from Rt 80 thru Bloomsburg to Knobles. Nice roads, probably busy on weekends, but evertime I'm in the the car I keep thinking how great these would be on a bike.

Geo, great site, now i just have to find the roads! i like the way it's done up though, with ratings for all sorts of stuff, and i can see 2 sets of roads within 40 mins of my house. gotta find some closer, but those'll prolly be a starting point. thanks!
