Intro & a few questions - Upcoming Trip to GA & NC
I'm new around these forums. Just wanted to take a minute to say hi! I live in the Daytona Beach area of Florida. Mostly ride XC on our local trails. I have a 2000 Airborne steel rigid SS that I absolutely love to ride. I also have a Sette Reken that gets mostly neighborhood time these days. Looking to get a CX bike for some gravel and fire road action and to use for double duty on the occasional road ride.
So, my questions:
1. I'm going to Kentucy in a couple weeks. I will be staying one night in Atlanta (Buckhead area) on the way up and want to fit in a ride. I have ridden Sope Creek before and liked it. Does anyone have a good Atlanta area trail to suggest other than Sope Creek? I will have probably a full afternoon to ride. It needs to be SS friendly.
2. I plan on spending one night in N. Carolina on the way back and would appreciate some suggestions on a good trail to visit. I would probably have a full morning to ride. I have visited Tsali in N. Carolina and would not mind going back since I was only there for one day so I only had about half the trails available to me, but I'd also welcome other suggestions. I would like to visit trails very near I40 or I26 just because I will be working with a somewhat limited time schedule and don't want to eat up too much time driving to and from...
3. Anyone know any Atlanta area bike shops that have a good selection of CX bikes?
Hey, I appreciate any responses. Thanks in advance for your time!
