Charlotte / Ft Mill race training rides?

I am about to move to the Ft Mill / Tega Cay area for a job, and I am looking for the local fast rides, preferably in the 22/23 mph+ with attacks, etc.

Does anyone know any around the area. I will not have time to get farther than the south side of Charlotte during the week.

Any help is appreciated!

The CBC Pineville shop is fairly convenient to Ft Mill. The 7:00 AM Saturday is A group only and 6:00 PM Tuesday/Thursday usually split up to A and B groups. You could pickup the Tue/Thu ride at 160 and 521 just out of Ft Mill. That's where the warmup ends.

Thanks for the response. I saw their rides listed, and that is probably exactly what I will do during the week unless I can get away early to go to the training crit. As you said, if I hump it from work, I should be able to meet up a few miles in.

If they tend to be a bit lower intensity than I would like, then I can pick up my intervals indoors on my own, I suppose.

For weekends, the CBC 7 am ride is the best organized ride I know of.
