    RIMBA Group Ride at Carvins Cove

    Some pics from RIMBA group ride last weekend.

    A full parking lot, and then some.


    A big ride crew

    Chicky ride

    Fast group takes off


    From the tail end of the intermediate group, climbing the 1000 foot climb


    The intermediate group AKA The Slackers, coming down the Ol School part of the Gauntlet







    Climbing the Trough

    This one hurt me that day, thanks to the Slacker crew for tolerating the ol slow guy.

    Coming down Buck




    Almost to the bottom

    Me, pulling up the rear

    It was a good time Doedrums. It is always cool meeting and riding with other mountain bikers. And drinking beer with them.

    Wish we could have that type of thing here but everybody is too busy insulting each other and complaining that our trails don't have any "features".

    There's plenty of that to go around... Everyone always knows more than the next person... The weather here created new features on old trails... Some things I've ridden for years are now like whoa!!!!
    Enjoying the trails one pedal stroke at a time...

    I enjoyed riding with the group. I just happened to pull in the parking lot to get onboard. It was great meeting everyone and saw a few familiar faces also. I come from Greensboro and love riding in the area. All the area trails are so fun to ride and everyone is so cool! Can't wait til next trip! As always thx for the pic's.

    I'll have to make a trip up from Blacksburg to the next RIMBA group ride. Are these rides typically on weekends? I'll be on the lookout.
