    If anyone finds a pair of black sunglasses please let me know. I lost them after the BIG climb near the rock garden. Thanks! This was a great ride.

      Bummer! I didn't see anything. Post up on Triangle MTB under lost & found!

      I think I probably have your shades. I found a black pair right in the rocks after the big switchbacks. I was going to ask around when we got back but forgot all about them. I live in Cary, I can meet you one evening this week if you want.

    Crazy turnout!! I hope everyone had fun! A big shout out to Michael Reardon and his gang for maintaining this trail! If you'd like to join him to help out, he has a Meetup! Thanks to Patty for being my front (wo)man...she rocks!!! And thanks to Steve and Tammy who swept behind us to make sure all got out. Fun times!!

      Post on triangle MTB in the lost and found:-) Ditto to Mike. The rainforest section was much easier to navigate this week.

    • Debbie

      Bummer!!!!!

      August 2, 2013

    • Thomas D.

      Dude...I so could have loaned you a wheel or replaced your spoke! Hate you missed a ride because of a mechanical.

    Hello all, my brother is planning on visiting with me this weekend. Does anyone have another bike he could use for this ride? This is just a thought and he may not want to come anyway but I was wondering :) Thanks in advance.

    July 30, 2013

    • Mamoon H.

      Sorry, pressed Enter too soon :) Thank you for the offer. I'll check with him and let you know. Take care and thanks again.

      July 30, 2013

    • Debbie

      Mamoon...I did not bring the extra bike...assumed your brother isn't coming...I hope I'm right or else I'll feel bad if he shows!

      August 3, 2013

  • Natalie

    I am heading that way. Debbie...I emailed you my cell # just in case.

    August 3, 2013

  • Ryan K.

    I will be riding my old hardtail for this one... Hope I don't get left in the dust

    August 2, 2013

    • Debbie

      Yes...but you're turning into the woods off Old Weaver Trail and I'm not sure how the gps does with that.

      August 3, 2013

    • Ryan K.

      Sounds good, I will head up early so I have time to get lost, if needed. Ha.

      August 3, 2013

    Woohoo!!!

    Ok is this Sat. or Sun.? It's been 2 years since I last road there and it's a long drive I want to make sure I have the right day!

    August 2, 2013

    • James L.

      Saturday

      August 2, 2013

    • Debbie

      Oh shoot!!! Do you see Sunday somewhere???

      August 2, 2013

  • Debbie

    If you take 98 from Creedmoor, then make a left on New Light Rd (be careful b/c on the right it's Six Forks Rd)...then make a left on old Weaver trail ( but be careful because on the right the road is named something else..geez!)...and then about a half mile down turn left into the woods. It's a dirt parking lot.

    August 2, 2013

    • James L.

      Look for the red paint on the trees.

      August 2, 2013

    • Eric D

      Or just stay on Rte 50, go 2 miles past Beaverdam, turn right on Old Weaver Trail (at the traffic light), go 3.5 miles, turn right onto fireroad (0.25 miles after Horsefly Trail)

      August 2, 2013

  • John B.

    Give this one another go. TMTB didn't have good directions but I have some if anyone wants them.

    This place was a little tough to find the first time I was there. It's a dirt road off of Old Weaver Trail, and I think the coordinates are[masked],-78.659186. Somebody please check these.

    August 2, 2013

    • Chip H

      These coordinates will work in iPhone Map[masked],[masked]

  • Debbie

    Yay, Christine!!!! :-)

    August 1, 2013

    • christine h.

      Yes, can't wait, haven't been in so long. My arse will be kicked!!

      August 1, 2013

    • Tonya

      No arse kicking. Only fun!

      August 2, 2013

  • Debbie

    Fantastic!! Good turnout so far! James, I hope you'll be my frontman? I don't think Patty's going to have her rim fixed in time. :-(

    July 31, 2013

    • James L.

      What happened? I'm sure someone awesome will sign up by then if Patty's not available. Maybe Reardon can lead us and serve wine too.

      July 31, 2013

    • Debbie

      From what I hear, NL did her rim in...on a ride with you! She didn't know til the next day.

      August 1, 2013

  • Debbie

    I hope so Mike! I'm trying to arrange a "lemonade" stand half way thru the loop. ;-)

    1 · July 30, 2013

    • James L.

      I heard a rumor Reardon was serving wine after the ride.

      2 · July 31, 2013

    • Debbie

      lol!!! Nice! Everyone over to Mike's house after the ride!

      2 · July 31, 2013

  • Mike R.

    Will their be refreshments served on this ride?

    1 · July 30, 2013

  • Natalie

    I need to leave by 12:15pm as I've got an activity with my Little (Sister). I am game for starting earlier if folks want to....

    July 29, 2013

  • Chris H

    If I survived San Lee with the exception of much of Freefall and the occasional ascending switchback mistake, should I consider this particular adventure?

    July 29, 2013

    • Debbie

      Yes indeed!!!!

      July 29, 2013

    • Chris H

      Then here goes!

    July 29, 2013

  • Debbie

    Ok Mamoon!! This is for you! And all the other regulars at Crabtree that have improved their skills! It's a tough trail, but you're ready!

    1 · July 22, 2013

    • Mamoon H.

      Joined, thanks Debbie, this should be exciting :)

      July 28, 2013

  • Debbie

    I'm interested in changing this ride to Saturday...any objections? I didn't realize NL was open every day now.
