      Glad you had a good ride. I will not be able to make the trip to GA. I like your idea of a gathering for food/drink after a ride. Thanks for organizing.

    We had a great ride, it helped quite a bit we had 2 great guides (Bill and Steve) that showed us pretty much all trails on the west side. The trails were in good shape, I still think going down the Stinky Creek was most challenging, but it might be because that was the first one we did :) Hope everyone had a good time. I'm thinking next time after the ride we can do some sort of lunch/dinner outing where we can socialize and exchange trail ideas.

    The trail map can be found here: http://www.dragonsports.net/timberlake.html

    You can see there are two parking areas. The east and west sides are separated by a river. The trail called Stinky crossing does not exist anymore. You can only get from one side to the other on Gator Alley. You will find that the trails are not marked very well. You will need a map or guide to help with orientation, especially on the east side. There is a group that rides these trails. Their web site is: http://www.eccyclists.com/ If anyone is interested, there is a time trials on Nov. 17th at 9:00 AM (meet at the east parking area)
