Ghost Town Riding Tour

  • This location is shown only to members

  • We will head out west to Centralia on some great riding roads to visit a modern ghost town. "Centralia is a borough and a near ghost town in Columbia County, Pennsylvania, United States. Its population has dwindled from over 1,000 residents in 1981 to 10 in 2010, as a result of the Centralia mine fire burning beneath the borough since 1962. All properties in the borough were claimed under eminent domain by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in 1992 (and all buildings therein were condemned), and Centralia's ZIP code was revoked by the Postal Service in 2002.[3] State and local officials reached an agreement with the seven remaining residents on October 29, 2013 allowing them to live out their lives there, after which the rights of their properties will be taken through eminent domain." Source Wikipedia.

    This ride is for intermediate to advanced riders, not for beginners. Please familiarize yourself with group riding under "more" then "files" at the top of this page.

    It's about 2 1/2 hours to get there. We will make some pit stops for food/fuel and have lunch at a local spot. Rain cancels.

    I dunno... the forecast doesn't look that bad... seems the storm isn't coming until around 6pm. Of course, had we taken the ride, the storm would have moved in around noon!

    I checked the forecast again this morning. The storm front's due to arrive out there about the same time we do, and the same goes for back here, which means we'll be more or less tracking with it on the way home. Pretty high odds we'll get caught in heavy rain, so I think instead I'll do a shorter ride closer to home. Catch you next time, guys. As always, have fun.

    The weather forecast for Centralia doesn't look good for today starting around 1:00, so I'm not going to take a chance that we could have a wet ride home and

    Forecast looks like storms moving west to east beginning around 1 pm in Shamokin area, which means it could be raining all the way home with the possibility of hail as well. I'm not up for that, but I'll check the forecast again in the morning before I make a decision.

      I think you're right with the forecast. I wouldn't want to ride home in a storm either!

    Sorry to bail on the ride. Since the weather prediction is a hit or miss, I think I'll take the miss.

  • Michael B.

    Due to the bad weather predictions for tomorrow afternoonn I am pulling out of the ride.

    I ride there and walked and rode all around there. There is a main rode blocked off by a concrete barrier that you can walk on but it is splitting apart.
