Gold Mine to the Pa Dragon

Route Info

Thanks to Jeff for additions to this route, and though we didn't follow it fully there are some wonderful surprises. This route is still a work in progress and due to weather and other factors on May10th more of this route needs to be revealed.  The original lunch stop plan is out, we'll go a bit further to Bloomsburg's Marley's Brewery and Grille. So we can get home a bit earlier we need to start earlier, 8:15 and rolling by 8:30

The Pa Dragon is not THE Dragon but it is fun, it's also spring - so fresh farm fertilization smells abound. There were some dirt(ish) clods in a few places and in one of my favorite turn combinations :(  With luck the upcoming rains will clean them for us. The switchback turns were pretty good (gravel wise)   Appropriate speeds (read quick-ish) in the turns and twisties, nothing crazy on the straights. 

Rain at the start cancels.

      Lunch was @ Marley's (marleysbrewery.net) in Bloomsburg, PA. It was pretty good, too.
