    Paris Mtn Group Rides ?

    Hey now...was wondering if there are any group rides at Paris Mountain. I am planning on going on October 20th. Also as the park is closed to mountain bikers on Saturday what other trails nearby should I check out?

    Was planning on going to FATS but there is an XC race on the 19th. Wondering if it will be closed off to riders or will it be open after the race.
    thanks

    I think there aren't any organized group rides at PMSP, especially on Sundays. Correct. No mountain biking on Saturdays.

    You can probably find a group of riders in the main parking lot and ask if you can tag along. This place gets crowded, so be aware of this. Many hikers, runners, dog walkers.

    For Saturday, there's Pleasant Ridge County Park on HWY 11, which has great trails, some relatively new additions. Or there's 60+ miles of trails near Clemson. Use MTB Project app, or the website to see everything in the area.

    Personally, I don't go there unless it's during the week during the day, when everyone else is at work, or on a really cold Winter day, or holiday. I used to go on Sunday, getting there at 8 AM when the gate opened. By the time I was coming down from the top a few hours later, I'd be on the brakes constantly because of people. Killed the fun factor big time.

    There's only 15 miles of trails, and not many intersections, it's hard to get lost at Paris Mountain.

    There are occasional group rides. Upstate Sorba will do a Biscuit Ride occasionally, and they have an Shuttle and Social on October 22nd from Mountain Goat, a local coffee shop (lights required). There is significantly less traffic on the upper trails, Kanuga, Brissey Ridge, North Lake Also, there's night riding on Tuesdays with the park closing at 9pm. And yes, Pleasant Ridge is a great alternative.
