    Rich Mtn Stoke - Blueridge GA

    Bobg (Ventana Salty owner that doesn't post over here) and I went and hit Rich Mtn today. Brutal ride, but I needed one that would burn the legs up to start my time off from work.

    Rich mtn (aka Stanley gap)

    21.3 miles in 3:37 rolling time. Cherry log side start....up and over Stanley gap, descned and break Rt on to Flat creek...and NUTHIN...I say NUTHIN "flat" about that trail...did that and descended to ASKA trail parking lot...crossed road and did lower green mtn to upper green mtn (FS711?) and all the way to lake blue ridge.....then turned around and came back sans FLAT creek...last 2 miles were all DH and Whew....what a day!

    At the start



    Done climbing the first section...time to go down!



    More climbing

    Nice puddle. I was wondering when I'd see some pics from the ride.
    The Stanley Gap climb is a biyatch. Flat Creek actually IS flat by comparison. Hopefully you had fun chasing Bob up the climb
    Big hoopy.
