That's cool. Given the temps, it might be a short ride, but I live here. My man in Jonas Ridge said the snow and ice were mostly gone.

If I were going a long distance for a short ride, I would bag myself. I will still swing by K-Mart at 11, maybe grab a biscuit.

Cheers

10:00 and still only 36 in Charlotte

Please let me know when you are going to make this route again folks.
I have been wanting to meet some more locals and itching to try both old 105 and Maple Grove Church Rd.

Looks like the weather is going to be perfect for riding !(30 - 40) At least it's not 30 and snowing like last time. Hell I forgot, that was good riding weather too !!!!! Be safe !!



P.S. Takem' in some snow, toughen them up a little !!!

DIRTCONNECTOR-

I'm pretty much a slacker, I mean "flexible" during the week sometimes. Temps in the 60's-70's is more my speed anyway. May be able to ride later in the week.

really

every where you look the rich a$$holes are ripping out the trees, gouging out the hills to stick a "summer cottage" (average 3000 sq ft) ... can't leave the trees ..... nooooo

gotta have a big clearcut around their fucking mansion that can be seen for miles


Bills Mt looks like it got a mohawk

listen up you fuckin halfbacks ...


the mountains are beautiful
the forest is beautiful

build to blend, not to destroy

oh yeah

FUCK HGTV and their doG damned free house dragging thousands of rich assholes in to buy everything up and drive taxes skyhigh while they bitch about the traffic and the locals who DON'T WANT YOUR FUCKING ASS DESTROYING THE HILLS!!!


[rant off]

breathe slowly
be calm
do not go postal on these idiots
