Good Friday..in more than one way

On Good Friday my friend and I went to Bur Mill Park to ride Big Loop and Wild Turkey. Great trails.

Giant was set up and letting people borrow bikes and go riding. So instead of riding my 1997 Cannondale SuperV700 I spent the afternoon on this!

We rode hard and came back just in time. I was exhausted but we rode 15 miles.

My only complaint was the seat hurt my butt and my lower back hurt. Probably dumb to ride for 2 hours on now bike. Still it was awesome!

You ever go to Re:Cycles bike shop? It's on spring garden street at UNCG. Coolest shop around.

Rider owned small shop. Merrit White is the owner and one of the best riders and nicest guys you'll ever meet. We live in the Hendo/Brevard area but went to Re:Cycles to get my sons new bike. Merrit gave him a great deal and now the Girlscout rides for Re:Cycles. Did the trails hold up well through the winter down that way?

Merrit and the Girlscout.......

Thank you! I contributed many hours to laying out and building WT and I'm glad to hear you like it.
