    Any good rides coming up?

    The race calender this year doesn't inspire me. I'm over donating my money for the big hot race in the summer. I could be talked into a local XC race but they don't really exist any more and I'm really over going round and round in a circle all night.

    Just sayin... any super ds or something different to try? I've heard rumors of some cool things in the works but the only events I'm interested in so far are DD and swank....

    I've still never done a big road bike cookie ride but in all honesty I'd rather support the dirt scene.



    sorry for the pointless thread. I'm feeling caffeinated and bored.

    The Sumter Metric Centry is on 5/16 details HERE proceeds go back to help the trails. To make it more interesting you could try it on a cross bike.

    Revised plan.

    Ride SMC on Saturday the 16th.

    Then ride the Long Cane Horse Trail on Sunday on your way back home.

    You will be shocked at the high quality of the LCHT. It is SC's hidden gem.

    This weekend

    Of course I'm going to plug my event in here. The NALI Fat Tire Festival is this Saturday in Dupont past Guion Farms, up Sky Valley. #1 It's a festival. #2 There's food. #3 Riders get to "find" their own prizes. No raffles, 50/50's, auctions. Take it upon yourself to leave with something cool. and #4 There is a trials competition for riders who are not good trials riders in particular. That should sell itself. Prediction: lots of top tubes/ stems to the balls.

    Are they accepting same-day registration?

    Yep. Day of registration is either $30 for the seven mile, $40 for the eighteen mile, or $50 for the King of the Mountain (18 mile plus trials and downhill). All include meals, music, fishing, and entry into treasure hunt. Snow cones and funnel cakes cost extra! (Apparently my wife thought I was joking, but is real happy that there are actually going to be funnel cakes and snow cones. Shoot, I think she's more excited about that than the ride itself.)
