    Riding partner(s) for Bent Creek on June 25th

    Freshman orientation ends Tuesday around 2pm, so anyone in the Asheville area or nearby who would be interested in riding Bent Creek for about an hour, hour and a half. Intermediate I guess. Beach trip took me off my bike for a week or so, so I'll just be a tad slower than usual, and my first time riding these trails.

    I'm in, long as I can get out early.

    I'm new(ish) to the area, recently got back on a bike after life derailed my riding, so I'm slow, but I can steer fine still I don't know the trails well, but they're not that difficult, I believe.

    If it doesn't have to be 2pm on the 25th there is a group ride in Bent Creek at 9 am on Tuesday the 25th

    Also Wed at 5:45 pm there is both a beginners ride and an intermediate ride at Bent Creek.

    There are a ton of previous route suggestions on this forum. Since I live here, I'm going to repeat/suggest a basic Putz Around:

    Rice Pinnacle parking lot
    491 (RP) to 479E (Ledford)
    479F (Boyd - R @ picnic table junction)
    665 (Boyd Branch - L @ picnic table)
    479 (R @ BC Gap Rd.)
    329 (L @ Camp ground Connector)
    Cross paved area to the lake
    Take in the view
    333 (Over the spillway)
    480A (L @ Old BC Gap)
    Now - you have two choices
    1.) 661 (R @ Hard Times Connector)
    2.) Continue to Hard Times parking lot
    If you are looking at a map - by now, I hope - both will get you back to Rice Pinnacle. You could also loop though the Arboretum, if you have time.
    Papas & Beer 3 miles north on 191 (K-Marte' shopping center)
    HAVE FUN!
    Edit: It is a lot of access roads, others will probably chime in more single track, but I'm looking at your time factor. Get creative.

    good suggestions, but I like the papas & Beer on tunnel road better, not sure why it's different, but it's better.
