The D&L Trail is one of Pennsylvania’s longest and best-known rail trails, stretching 165 miles from Wilkes-Barre to Bristol. It follows the route that canal boats once used to deliver anthracite coal from mines to market, and it offers stunning views of the Delaware and Lehigh Rivers.

East view along Matthews Rd I was struck by a massive case of wanderlust after a long day of work Friday, and found myself exploring a still-under-construction segment of the Chester Valley Trail in Malvern, PA. This has quickly become one of my favorite trails, due to its proximity to my office and its ability
A nice shaded tunnel under Swedesford Road Malvern, Pennsylvania is home to the small but growing Chester Valley Trail. This Trikke-friendly stretch of asphalt currently runs five miles from the Wegman’s on South Morehall Road to the trailhead near the Valley Creek Corporate Center. It will ultimately be part of a larger inter-connected trail network,
The Trikke Riders of Pennsylvania scheduled a mid-month ride in Doylestown Central Park, because most of our regulars won’t be available for July’s LSM Ride.

The oppressive summer heat wave and threat of thunderstorms were no match for the Trikke Riders of Pennsylvania who came out in force for the June LSM ride at Warminster Community Park. While temperatures reached for the triple-digits, our attendance surged to the double digits, with ten Trikkers making this one of the group’s most
Riding my Trikke in the City of Brotherly Love was not something I ever thought I would do, until Norman from the Trikke Riders of Pennsylvania told me about the closure of Martin Luther King Boulevard every Saturday and Sunday morning for recreational use. That conversation was over a year ago, and I’ve been looking forward
Ah!! It finally happened today . . . the first warm, sunny weekend descended upon the Lehigh Valley. So what did I do? I made the gut wrenching decision to leave the Trikke in the garage . . . GASP!! WHAT?! WHY? Well, there’s a significant new trail that opened over the winter that I’ve
Ah . . . the freedom of the open road!! Today it saved me from the constraints of our seasonal woes. If the Lehigh Valley’s trails were getting clogged with the fallen leaves and twigs a few weeks ago, I’d venture a guess that they are totally non-Trikkeable now in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
Yesterday I had the pleasure of joining two fellow members of the Trikke Riders of Pennsylvaniafor our October LSM ride in Warminster, PA. I had met Trent at June’s Riding Clinikk in Philadelphia, but this was our first chance to ride together outside the Clinikk. Our newest member, Matt, had attended the Clinikk as well,
