N2bikeN....2 weeks in Pisgah

N2bikeN just spent 2 weeks in WNC riding with Girlscout and Me. He rode his fly S-works Enduro w/full XTR,Crossmax,brainfade shock.......you get the pic,nice ride.He got in around 150 trail miles and I don't think he repeted the same trail or loop.Here's a trail summary.....
Dupont- Lake Imaging,Grassy Creek,Joanna Mtn,Tarklin,Thomas Cem,Jim Branch,Ridgeline,Burnt Mtn,Big Rock,Cedar Rock, Little River Trail,Larel Ridge,Reasonover Cr,Corn Mill Shoals and more.
Pisgah-Black Mtn,Avery Cr,Clawhammer,Caney Bottom,Farlow Gap,Daniel Ridge Thrift Cove,Sycamore Cove and more.
I watched him go from a really fit rider to a fit good rider on tech trails. He rode most everything I did. Iowa will hold no more challenge for N2. We had a blast the 2 weeks he was here,we rode a lot,bled some,crashed some, laughed and joked a bunch. He even got a couple of rides with my TMCS bike club. Good time, I hated to see him go home. I'll let him fill in the blanks(he would have done this but he's trying to get caught up at work). Here are some pics...

N2 at the falls at Daniel Ridge.......


Girlscout, N2bikeN and Ol'66 At the summit of ceder rock/big rock trails....


N2 on Big Rock.....

We're really not lost...Farlow Gap..


I'll post more pics later....

I wish I only lived 160 mile from there I would be there evey weekend if i could. Thanks mtb66 for posting the pics. It was the best mountian biking trip I have done, even over Moab. The trails were great with a lot of good climbs and GREAT descents, it is like on other. Mtb66 and girlscout are awsome to ride with and full of good laughs. I would do the fall ride if it were not for 900 mile drive. I am going to ride Wis the weekend but sure wish I was in pisgah NC.

Yeah it'd be tough to not have a good time with those guys. Great pics of some familiar spots.

66, did you find me any land yet?
