    Riding partner while visiting Asheville!!

    I will be visiting in asheville from Monday June 10- Wednesday June 12. I'm an intermediate level mountain biker with a great passion for the sport. I've heard many great things about the surrounding trails and I'm dying to ride them but I'm awful with directions. Would anyone be kind enough to ride with me on the trails so I don't get lost?! It would be greatly appreciated!

    We received a large amount of rain in the area so you may not get too many takers. Don't want to be the bearer of bad news but if you don't get a lot of responses that's probably the reason why.

    Do you think the trail conditions will be good enough to ride by Wednesday? I was interested in joining the intermediate group ride at bent creek that evening.

    Usually if the trails are bad they will just ride gravel

    I'm the "occasional substitute" leader for the Wednesday ride - unless there's lightning they'll ride, and they'll use gravel to look for trails dry enough to ride. It's only a 30-40% chance of rain for the next two days (a.k.a. every day in the mountain in June-August), so things should be ridable.

    I probably won't be back on this ride until after ORAMM. Enjoy!

    I'm visiting Brevard from Wednesday to Sunday, so I'm glad to know about this ride, as I will also be on a solo trip. I may check this one out, too.

    I imagine Wed will be mostly gravel as said but they are still fun and social rides.
    Save a little time for Papa's and Beer afterwards.

    I may hit up DuPont this weekend so let me know if you need a tour guide.
    Just stick it in granny and start grinding.
