Sorry my dad is slow sometimes. This will be the 3rd southeast forum ride in Pisgah. He also failed to post the dates.....Oct. 20,21,22. Gastro,Hambone,Mtnbiker66,and me will be kinda hosting it. Gastro will have a couple of his friends with him (they rip).We will camp in Pisgah,the only rules are have fun,no attitudes,and you must laugh or grin at least 98% of the time you are here.

The thing that really sucks is no one can keep up with the kid (girlscout13). We may have to leave him at home.

LOL....tried that early this spring. I took him on a camping trip in Pisgah and his regular bike was broken. He used his single speed and still shreded about 20 miles of real hard riding. He is a filthy animal. I just hate to think he is going to even get better.

Hell, even a state name would do just fine.

But mapquest without a destination? Well, that's just rude.

Wish I could make it! Maybe in the spring when I'll be driving.

Are trails downhill/freeride oriented or can an XCer like me with a hardtail 80mm fork survive just fine?

You must pedal up to bomb down. A hardtail will do just fine.

Sounds like a good time. If I can swing it, I'll be there that weekend through Halloween weekend. Bringing the whole arsenal of toys (kayaks and bike). BTW, Halloween weekend is the Guest Appreciation at the Nantahala Outdoor center for you western NC folks. Good deals on biking and boating gear. If anyone wants to ride trails around the NOC (like Tsali) later on that week, I'm down.

You're a good man Gastro. I'll see if some of the local yokels down here want to come play in the mud.

Thanks for the invite.

Any pics from last time?

Sweet pics 66...it'd be fun to get out to the other side of the continent and ride. Hmmmm, I wonder if I could convince my wife to go visit her sister and husband in Atlanta while I ride with you guys?
