Belcher Mountain road is a fun dirt road that goes up the mountain near medows of dan. You can also gleam the Squrel at Squrel Spur rd.

There is a lot of loose gravel the entire length of Belcher Mountain Road that has been put down over the last 3 weeks. Much worse than last June's treatment. The flat section on the top of the ridge is worse than the climb up the hill.

Meet at Lenoir mc donalds near 321 and 18 crossroad at 10:00 a.m. Actualy on 18. short ride from there to the forest service roads. plan to ride Wilson creek area to old 105 and around. Maybe find some new roads. I'll bring an atlas.

Of course any one is welcome. Lots and lots of gravel....

I'd love to tag along, I've got family obligations Saturday evening though. That's a bummer too, I just put on a new d606 and FMF header. In the process of installing the header I was able to sort out a lean pop I was getting on decel. The bike is running great right now, I wish I could go beat on it a little.

As and aside, a few weeks ago I took my daughters camping up in the Wilson Creek area, got to take them for rides on the FSR's. Beautiful area, want to go back with more time to explore.

Nice one, both of my daughters had a blast up in Pisgah the other weekend, we'll definitely be doing that again.

If its a little gravel and mostly paved I would bring the VStrom. Any suggestions ? Thanks
Hi Blue,
I'm in the neighborhood (Fries Va) and I've got the R100GS ready to go...
Check your PM's for contact info. The riding around here is fantastic, gravel or paved, a mix of both is best IMHO. I can show you a few roads to knock your sox off.

Hey Lost! How are you and the fam?

I am headed down towards W/S on Friday, riding with a buddy from W/S, trying to talk him into some gravel or maintained dirt West of the W/S area. You got any recommendations?
