    Nanta's Descent

    Another race coming up at ATR in a couple of weeks. Looks like this one is to the West of Pisgah.

    ¬*At The Ridge FunTrails¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*"Pisgah's New Playground" - HOME

    Does anybody know anything about this course? I can't really tell from the map whether it is trails, gravel roads or some combination. 6K ' of climbing in 44 miles sounds like a good day's work.

    I got last in their first race and could go 2 for 2 if I enter this one.

    Looking at the race cues, it looks like it's mostly on forest road.

    Starting from At the Ridge, turn left onto hwy 215, turn left onto FS 4663 (Cold Spring Gap Rd), turn right onto FS 4663C, turn left onto 4655, turn left on SR1756, turn left onto FS 4663C, turn right onto FS 4663A, turn left onto FS 4663 (Cold Spring Gap Rd), turn right onto 215, turn right into At the Ridge (Finish)

    Yup, looks like a gravel grinder from that.
    Just stick it in granny and start grinding.
