In case any of you local guys are interested.
The Mountain Trail Riders Association meeting is Thursday at 7:00pm at the Mountain City courthouse. http://www.mtntrailridersassoc.org/index.shtm
I went to their fundraiser for the Doe Mtn OHV park this past Saturday. I ate a couple free hotdogs, bought a few T-shirts, & joined the group. Most of them ride 4 wheeler (both kinds, with steering wheels and with handlebars), but there were a good number of guys on bikes. I'm looking forward to riding at Doe Mtn, but I'm especially hoping to make connections with riders who know the private and/or "top secret" trails. I don't know if that will pan out, but they are a good group and doing a great service for the trail riders here.
Btw, I went scouting this past weekend and found a couple promising trails. I ran into dead ends on them and need to go back with a GPS and a chainsaw, if the GPS says it would be worthwhile. Anybody with a gps wanna help? Shoot me a PM.
