Mtn Biking Camping Weekend

  • October 12, 2013 · 6:00 AM
  • Dupont State Forest

Camp and bike near the Dupont and Pisgah nat'l forests. Brevard, NC. Trying to gauge interest for the weekend of Oct 12/13th. Looking for a group of bikers who want to ride Dupont and/or Pisgah by day and relax by the campfire by night. This would be a fun, casual ride where no one is looking to set records. Just enjoy the venue with friends.

**Update**

I have reserved a spot at a place called Adventure Village (http://www.theadventurevillage.com/) which will accommodate as many ppl as want to camp.  They have hot showers and restrooms.  Price will be $10 per camper.

The plan is to leave very early on Sat morning and return late Sun afternoon.  Go to camp location first, set up camp and go ride for the rest of the day.  Sat evening meal and banter by the fire then breakfast and takedown prior to heading out for ride #2 on Sun.  Head home after ride.  You will need at least a tent and some camping gear along with food, etc, (unless you plan to eat out).  Currently, the ride itinerary is up in the air and will largely depend on who the final participants are.  We may do both areas or perhaps only Dupont as it is easier to bail out if needed. 

Email me with any questions or post here.  All are welcomed, bring a friend if you want.

    Patrick, great job putting this one together. I had a blast riding with everyone. Many great laughs around the campfire Saturday night and awesome eggs, hasbrowns and coffee Sunday morning. You're quite the cook. Also, a huge shout out to Andrew for picking the routes and being our trail guide. He put a of of thought into which ones he felt we'd enjoy the most and took into consideration the skill levels of the group.

    We HAVE to do this again soon.

    Me and my neighbor Natalia are coming late Saturday afternoon. Natalia knows Jamie, so we'll see everyone later on the day.

    • Patrick

      OK George! Just remember to have $10 each for the campground if you are camping overnight. See ya then!

    Ok gang, last call. Looks like Andrew has mapped out some sweet trails and plans to do a couple of 1.5 hour-ish rides on Saturday, so giving you an opportunity to ride/relax as much or as little as you want. Then, on Sunday we have some awesome, fun, flowy trail rides planned for DuPont. Nothing too fast or too hard, just fun times with good friends on the trails with some campfire time to boot. Who's in??!!

  • scott l.

    Can I bring my kids ? It sounds like a fun weekend!

    October 6, 2013

    • Patrick

      Scott, I've got kids too and like to get them involved, but this will be geared more toward adults. Also, the pace and length of time on trail may be more than a kid can handle. Unless your kids are over 18 which in that case no problem. I don't want to speak for the other participants, but that's how I envision it.

    I'm waiting for my tendon in my foot to heal. Hopefully I get the clearance to ride again before Oct 12th if so I'll be coming and bringing a friend

  • Greg M.

    Is it cool if I just come out there for the Sunday ride at DuPont? If so let me know what time everyone plans on rolling and I'll be there by then.

    • Patrick

      Greg, not sure exactly what time we'll be on the trail. I imagine mid morning perhaps, once we're packed up and had breakfast...

      September 19, 2013

  • Michele

    Can't do the w/e of the 12th but can the following w/e, otherwise, I'll catch it the next time.

    September 14, 2013

  • Patrick

    Sounds Ok to me Marcus. I won't be setting any trails on fire, but I can definitely hang for that duration.

    September 12, 2013

  • Patrick

    Sounds good Marcus! Let's not forget some down time @ good food, drinks and campfire ;)

    September 12, 2013

  • Marcus B.

    Maybe a Pisgah ride on Saturday followed by a DuPont ride on Sunday? Just throwing it out there.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
