you need to get this book


and this map


The book has all the popular pisgah rides. The map allows you to connect one ride to the next and give you the big picture so you don't get hoplessly lost. These are availible at any of our LBS and maybe by mail order from them or amazon or something. ENJOY

Get your book and map from a LBS here at backcountry outdoors

If you are interested in an "epic" type ride, check out this thread on a different site.

We like strangers with purty teeth to join up on our rides. Serously though, the ride we'll be doing will definately give you a taste of the best that NC has to offer. The meet up is at the Davidson River. Read through the entire post and you will get a good sense of whats in store for the day.

I dont know you at all so dont take offense, but you will need to have a pretty good level of fitness. We'll probably be going at a slow steady pace for this ride, so you dont have to be a speed demon. Lots of climbing and some hike a bike. You need to have a reliable bike and a pack big enough to carry food, enegy gels or whatever you use to keep you going for an all dayer. Plus a spare tube or two and tools to work on your bikes. Its a long push back if you have a unrepairable mechanical issue.

We dont drop or loose riders and there are bail out options if needed. You are welcome to join in if you are up for that type of ride. We are an easy going group that likes to talk a lot of smack and generally have a good time. I like to extend invites to out of towners because I have been treated to some great riding experiences all over the US from trolling around on mtbr.
