    Laurens, SC

    I look to be moving to the area for work soon and will be looking to ride (and rock climb) most weekends. I'll be searching the meetup sites and others for people who would like to head out also.

    Just saying
    It's not an adventure until someone BLEEDS!

    yeah, guess you'll need to decide if you want to live close to work and drive to the fun or live closer to trails and drive to work

    Coming from Denver, I have a feeling you will be spending a lot of your time up here in NC for both Rock climbing and weekend rides.
    Just stick it in granny and start grinding.

    While I am a very experienced rider, currently I am slow, outta shape, and old. Still.. Looking forward to getting in shape, quicker, and older. Found a place in Laurens and I WILL drive. DuPont this Sunday, but not sure about tomorrow. Reach out if you have something for me.

    I will be in DuPont Sunday afternoon on a slower paced ride. Taking a coworker out who just got a mountain bike. May invite a couple other beginners, not sure yet on that part. It might be a slower ride than you want but it is a free tour guide if you are interested.

    PM if interested.

    Croft state park in Spartanburg is only about 40 minutes from Laurens. We have about 25 miles of trails. There are also some trails in Newberry and Greenwood within 45minutes of Laurens. Don't forget to check out the KKK museum if it's still open.

    It is sad places like this exist but ironic that the building is now owned by a black baptist church.

    Thankfully since then it has been closed for good.

    There is some good **** out here. Rode Dupont a couple weeks ago and it kicked my butt (altitude.. cough cough). Harbison in Columbia is nice.
