ATT Ride

  • Nov 3, 2012 · 10:00 AM

American Tobacco Trail (ATT) Ride

Please read the following description. I'll only answer questions that are not covered in it.

We will be starting at one of the entrances near SouthPoint Mall in Durham. Final directions to the meeting place will be e-mailed to attendees on the day prior to the event. We’ll be riding for about 2 hours, so hopefully the full southern section of 24 miles round trip.

For those unfamiliar with the trail:
This ride is on an easy trail, but does involve some distance. If you have not been riding similar numbers of miles on road or hardpack, you may be extremely tired, sore and/or be cramping up by the end.
The American Tobacco Trail is a rails to trails (quite flat) shady, wide recreational multi use trail. It is open to walkers, runners, bikers, and horses. We will be riding out and back, about 12 miles each way. Mountain bikes are recommended, but hybrids or road bikes can be used. The first 1/2 mile or so (and last) there are a few 1/10s that are somewhat rough - nothing close to as bad as single track, but the rest of the ride is nice surface, either paved or screened granite. We'll be averaging about 12 mph.

Helmets are REQUIRED for this ride, and you'll want 1 liter of water or so.

We will gather for food after the ride, for those who are interested.

Any drop outs on less than 36 hrs notice will be considered "no show"
