I tend to celebrate my birthdays in unique ways. My 20th was a picnic in Centralia and tour of the Ashland Coal Mine. My 21st was a primitive camping trip in the rain. My 25th was my wedding celebration. My 26th was the Columbia 50 ride, which includes Jonestown Mountain, one of the biggest climbs in our area. A race back in the 70’s used this route. We were lucky enough to start our ride in 2010 in a down pour.
The ride was organized by The Dutch Wheelman, a great shop in Bloomsburg PA. I think 2009 was the first year of this now annual ride
