    Yes, Pisgah is wet

    I rode the Avery Creek area of Pisgah today and even the normally well draining trails are wet. The creeks are full and the ground is saturated.

    If you want to stay dry and still get a big ride, join the Spartanburg Freewheelers at North Greenville College in Tigerville at 9 on Saturday for the Marquis de Sade. 82 miles featuring every big f!#$#$ hill in the area. $12 entry fee gets you rest stops and a meal at the end. I'll be the guy dragging into the parking lot after something like 6 1/2 hours.

    Speak for yourself. All the 'locals' don't have that attitude...

    hey meshback

    it lists your favorite trail as Perry Cove. You do know that Perry is illegal to mountain bikes, right? Posting about poaching can get you in big trouble with sorba and the bike patrol.
    Now, can't we all just get along?

    Road on the pavement today. The wind and sun will help dry trails for tomorrow. Looking forward to pedaling on the dirt...

    As far as local rain friendly trail knowledge just pick higher elevation trails, southern facing stuff and go from there. We're planning on tackling the Laurel -> Pilot -> Squirrel Gap loop tomorrow. I'm hoping my legs hold up.

    "And we're gonna litter, too."

    Moto was seen in DuPont last week slinging a empty bottle of wine and flicking a cigarette butt while crossing the river. I think he's French.....

    Now you're cast of steel and cast aside. Broken dreams maybe, but you haven't died

    Did a 36 miles loop @ Wilsons today. It was very nice.I saw water standing everywhere on the drive up from Charlotte so I was expecting a good bit of mud, but that was not a issue. Very few (one new one) deadfall down also.

    But MAN the creeks were high .

    oh yea, it is considered Pisgah too

    83 miles on the road today. 7 + hours in the saddle (yes - that works out to an average speed of 11.3 - I didn't say I was fast.) Rode every big ass hill in the Tryon area. Mr. Garmin said I climbed over 10,000 feet, but he tends to exagerate. Still, it was all this dude needed for one day. I gotta get some lower gear for my road bike. 39 x 28 didn't cut it for White Oak Mtn.

    My butt hurts.

    Pisgah's wet, Pisgah's dry . If you wanted to ride wet trails you should have rode the "Save the trails" ride that SORBA put on.
