Should we do this again?




I've actually come up with a firm plan for the late train aka hangover rides this year. We'll leave from Black Bear no earlier than 10:30ish, we'll ride a bit of dirty gravel then some twisty pavement with maybe another stretch or two of dirty gravel then stop and eat some lunch, after that we'll ride back towards camp on a mix of twisty pavement with a few more stretches of dirty gravel.

Standard rules will apply. Volunteers for relay riders accepted.


Tentative routes:

Thursday: Lunch @ Hawg-n-Dawg via Beauty Spot TO FROM

Friday: Lunch @ Sharpie's TO FROM

Saturday: Lunch @ Dry Run & Watauga Lake Winery TO FROM

*note maps are color coded showing pavement in blue and dirt/gravel in red.

Meeting in the main parking lot down by the camp store.


Terrain:
Mix of twisty back roads and gravel, steep, deep and narrow. Big bike friendly IF you're experienced riding one off pavement and at a brisk pace.

I'll be running a spot tracker this year....here's the link that will be active during the RDV.

I started doing a little scouting for this location back in June. There seems to be a distinct lack of straightaways in the area.

Scout reports added to and mixed in with all the other crap in my daytrippin' thread

...links below to where relevant pics started:

...and of course they ramble on for pages and pages so you can try to sort it out as best as you can.



Stay tuned.

...more details to be added to this post at a later date...maybe, maybe not.

I'm going to go with a slightly more laid back approach this year....both in regards to mileage and pace...maybe.

Tentative routes:

Thursday: Lunch @ Hawg-n-Dawg via Beauty Spot TO FROM

Friday: Lunch @ Sharpie's TO FROM

Saturday: Lunch @ Farmer's BBQ TO FROM
