I have been trying to hook up with wvridgerider on this ride but he hasn't been able to get up here yet.

Let me know when you will be around Pocahontas County and we can hook up with Falcon86 for some great rides there.
with a little notice i may be able to join in on this ride.

Going to start out at about 9 psi. Running a Michelin UHD tube.

6-7psi in dirt, 10 in gravel, 12-14 on pavement. It's a tough tire don't be afraid to go low especially with uhd tubes. Cornering is a tad different, not bad just different.

Graybo, if we don't do that ride this weekend, it will be a while. Weekends in June are just about filled up between the beach and a wedding and the Snowshoe GNCC on June 29 & 30.
Might be able to ride on Sundays June 9 & 16.
I'll let you know if we get a ride worked up this weekend.

Shake down on the 300 this afternoon up the creek. Very sloppy from last pm rain. That not at all fresh Dunlop 803 trials did way better than I expected. Consider me impressed. Hope you like yours.

Sure wvridgerider, but you or Bob would have to lead that ride. I'm not familiar with anything other than the main road until you get up to Mahan, but the ride I mentioned earlier could be tied into Paint Creek at Mossy.

That could be done tdrrally, but Fayetteville is usually near the end of the ride after doing the Fayette Station Road thru the gorge.

We would pass within 3 or 4 miles of it fairly early in the ride so we could do lunch there with no problem.
