I'm glad I was able to make it to Maida Fest 09...hopefully there will be another in '10?

yep we will do it again in 2010. Once again on Labor Day weekend. Camping at Black Forest. Mega ride at DuPont.

ALSO

We will be doing a bunch of other camping and riding type trips.

The first will be April 9-11 in Pisgah.

Who is the fat guy in the July pic?

Mikey's year in review.

I enjoyed meeting and riding with you and a few other Ashevillians this past year. I discovered a few new trails (for me) this past year. I rode Dark Mt./Warrior Creek for the first time, and made my first trips to FATS and Raccoon Mtn.. I rode my first 50 mile race and came in 100th out of 103 finishers. Most people have enough sense to quit after 6 hours, but not me. I think I beat an 80 year old woman on a Huffy. They ran out of beer before I got to the keg. Lots of long rides with Steve Fincher in Dupont. Steve likes to go up the slick rock the hard way after you have about 25 miles in you. Did my 2nd Swank and managed to take 30 minutes off of last year's time.

This year, I really gotta try ORAMM for the first time. I am running out of excuses for not doing it.

Happy New Year!

I'm a Winter Park local, creepin around to see some Pisgah pics, and was happily surprised to see my favorite slice of Grand County singletrack in your pics. Knew the spot as soon as I saw the view of Byer's Peak. Good stuff.

Thanks for the comment! I think my favorite trail in that area was Tipperary Creek..well worth the climb! I loved Colorado, but by the end of two weeks I was itching for some slick as snot roots and rocks in Pisgah. Both have their fun parts! :thumbsup:
