    FATS near Augusta, GA

    Crawling out from the lurking shadows ... rode the FATS system of trails near Augusta, GA.

    Well, I made it back out to FATS again this evening. We had 4 waves of really nasty thunders storms roll across Ft. Gordon yesterday afternoon and evening, so I didnít expect to get any riding in. But, when I checked CSRAís site at lunch today, the trails were open. Either the storms were super isolated, or the trails drain super quick. When I hit the trails, I would never have guessed there was rain in the area.

    On to the few pics that I tookÖ

    I hit Skinny today. Itís a total blast. Still rolling like Brown Wave, but there are a few longer and smooth runs. It felt like there was a little more elevation changes, but nothing leg breaking.


    Almost ran over this funny looking stick.


    Took a moment to move him off the trail.


    One last shot of the trail.


    It looks like I will be hanging around Gordon a little longer, so I will be able to keep working my way around the FATS system.

    Until next time,
    STinGa

    Used to ride FATS once in a while when I was in school at MCG. I was dead broke so I rode it on a 43 lb (!!!!) Walgoose. Good times.

    Nice snake! It's almost shocking to see how quickly FATS dries out this time of year, isn't it? I was on Skinny and Brown Wave Monday and it seemed the previous evening's downpour merely knocked down the dust.

    Thanks for posting the pics!

    I am visiting my parents who live in Augusta over the next week. I can't wait to ride these trails. I want to see how they compare to the MD trails.

    Thanks for the pics.

    We go every other weekend or so. Brown Wave is truly one of the greats; fast, flowy and you catch a metric ton of air.
