    Places and people to ride with in Boone

    I'm going to be in Boone the weekend of August 20 and would like to find some trails and riders. I've been riding for about 2 years and not terribly fast so if anyone has suggestions feel free to let me know.

    XC and trail riding is in Wilkesboro, east of Boone about 35 miles, at W.Kerr Scott Reservoir. Downhill and extreme trails are a guarded secret. I know of two.

    What do you ride?

    Nice new trail network up at Beech Mountain, too, temps will be amply cooler as well. Two days of crit racing at the Historic North Wilkesboro Speedway that weekend as well www.NWSCycling.com

    I ride a BLTc 1 x 9 setup with RS Rev 150, i9 hubs on 819 tubeless wheels with a few other doo dads.

    I may just hit a shop and get a map but I figured if some people were riding I could at least go to a populated trail. If anyone has a fav trail let me know.

    I looked at Boone area cyclists but it seemed more road oriented.

    Thanks

    Go to Magic Cycles, also im pretty sure that the second Dirty Bird Downhill Race will be going on at Hawksnest that weekend. Race weekends are awesome there.

    Magic is a good place. Helpful and friendly. They have the map of the reservoir trails.

    August 20th weekend is going to be real busy here. Helping someone move?

    We're actually going to have our very own trail park here soon. See other thread.

    lol, more like "I post my gps coordinates of my ride on trails not 100% legal to ride, more people find out, trail gets shut down." Hopefully that all will change soon.
