Hi all,

I'm planning to ride in SC mid morning next Tuesday (7/9) and early afternoon next Thursday (7/11). I live in SF so don't get to SC all that often, but I've ridden all of Demo and most of Wilder that is on trail forks. I am looking to expand a bit to see what UC has to offer.

If anyone has a good itinerary to offer up by PM I'd be much obliged, or if anyone is riding one of those days and would point me in the right direction that would be awesome.

If not, I am sure that I will cobble an awesome ride together from the info that I have...

Thanks!

No mention of riding while texting?
