Riding in WNC 6/20-6/22

I am making plans to head back to my favorite place to ride, WNC in about 2 weeks time. I will be up there from Friday - Sunday.

On Friday, 6/20 and will do something short that evening, depending on what time I arrive - around 20 miles, probably not more than that.

My plan for Saturday, 6/21 is to ride the Ring of Scott and have the Ring of Fire as my bailout route. Bailout option will be determined probably during the ride, depending on how I'm feeling after Cullowhee Mtn. Road.

Sunday, 6/22 will be the Burningtown Loop in Franklin. Don't have a linky for that route, but I have the route in Training Center.

If anyone wishes to join me, just reply to the thread. I don't have a place to stay yet, but will be looking for something on the cheaper (but still decent) side...prolly stay either in the Franklin area or Sylva.

Oh my, this is tempting. I was sort of planning to ride the Blood, Sweat and Gears half century route that weekend. I'll have to re-think my plans. Of course even if I do ride the BS&G route, I could still make the Burningtown Loop on Sunday.

I stayed at the Blue Ridge Inn in Sylva last September. You might want to consider it. It's Ok and, not expensive. The location is great because you're right in town and, can walk to the stores and restaurants (what few they have).

guys - i might change the dates to next weekend, as there is a forum member in georgia that may be able to come up and ride if it is the weekend of the 21st. i'll know today whether he can come up and ride.

i may change the dates to Friday, 6/20 - Sunday, 6/22 anyways due to BSG, so Neal and anyone else thinking about that ride could also do this ride as well...

i'll know more sometime today.....

I'm most likely out for the weekend of the 28th. I'm supposed to be in Missouri for a metric. I'm still not sure what I am doing on the 21st. You guys don't need me anyway.

Wasn't this thread originally posted with different dates?

Anyway, on Saturday, June 21 (or is it now June 22?) I'll be headed to a slow death a little further south in the mountain chain. I hope the weather is dry and not too hot for everyone.

yes it was originally posted with dates a week later, but MV is only available on Saturday June 21, so that's when i'm going to be there riding.

i just posted this in case anyone might want to join me...it's not really an 'official SEBF' ride or whatever you want to call it. i need to get away for a bit to somewhere that makes me happy and WNC climbing makes me happy.

*edit*
fixed dates in OP.

I would volunteer, but I'm not sure you would be able to control yourself.

Looks like you did it again, got the last dang room! No availability when I checked just now.

Doesn't anyone want to ride mtb in the cool woods?

I'll most likely make the Sunday ride but Sat. is still up in the air for me at this time. I guess it depends on the weather forecast.
