    Recon Mission

    Hi guys,
    The wife and I are considering relocating to your beautiful part of the country and I've got one quick shot a sampling your local terrain. I'm staying in Asheville and looking for something rather close to town. Preferred ride time would be about 2 hrs, 1,500ft of of climbing, and some flowy single track. Any suggestions?
    I appreciate your help!

    Bent Creek or Mills River is your closest bet. Too many to list to be honest. What part of town will you be staying in? Any of the local bike shops can point you in the right direction. Make sure to come in Motion Makers of you are near Bent Creek we will be happy to show you routes.

    I did indeed stop by and rented your purple metallic Stumpy! Had a good quick ride in-between showers. Great service and friendly folks you have there.

    We're planning another trip back in September and wondered about your weather patterns and trail conditions. I'm guessing here but it looks like there's a equal mix of clear, partly cloudy, showers, and rain within a 7-10 day period? We're coming from a long way and want to make sure plan for a long enough trip.

    Thanks!

    Glad you had a good time. It's almost impossible to plan for the weather more than a couple weeks out. On average September is usually less turbulent than March, April, October, or November but you never know. Hope to see you in September!
