Unthinkable Umstead Ride

This is not a beginners ride!!! Let's get the webs off the mountain bike and ride the through Umstead on the main road and back...we'll extend the ride to the NC Art Museum if you want. We'll ride about 1.5 hours. It's been a while since I've ridden in Umstead so we'll see if I make it up Cemetery Hill or not. We'll probably ride around 10-12 mph. I'll send a contact number to those attending the night before the event. It is recommended you wear a helmet and it is mandatory you follow biking etiquette. Hope to see you there!!!

    Thanks to everyone for a fun ride. We saw a bit of everything - bikes and babies, joggers, even horses, but no bears. It was a perfect day to be in the woods. One of my favorite parts of the ride was when the little boy and his mom were cheering us as we heaved up the steep little hill by the lake at I-40. And we all made it! Thanks for hosting Sophie!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
