    This is the place to go to find local riders in Roc. I am a member, they are a good group of people. There is never a risk of getting dropped. Everyone always either waits or splits into smaller appropriate groups. They ride all the local trails and plan day trips out of town every so often. You can post a ride whenever you are planning on going and others will more than likely join. Best riding group I have seen.
    I am Tim btw. I am pretty much the only consistently SS rider in the group so I am pretty easy to spot. See ya out there!

    dragbike posted the main link, check out under the main menu *single track trails & maps*. It shows trails some info and where the trails are located. I have not made it to Tryon yet but hear that is the better location for the area.
    I use to be lean & mean... Now I'm just an a$$hole!

    Dryer hill is a pretty good ride. They have a small pump track and a skills area at the parking lot for some fun.

    The trails there are short-ish, but pretty fun. Ribbon Candy is a hoot.
    Yesterday starts tomorrow, tomorrow starts today, and the problem seems to be we're picking up the pieces on the ricochet

    Ribbon Candy is my favorite trail there!
    For added fun, at the top of the trail, there is a small mound on the field side of treebeard (i think). Start on the mound and ride ribbon Candy without pedaling once. Its way harder than it sounds and super fun. It gets you to really read the trail and work those pump-track skillz. We wound up just lapping down ribbon pumping and back up moon like 5 times in a row.
