TORC Ride @ RTP Trails (all skills)

TORC RTP Trails all skills

Directions and trail info:
Google Maps Parking Lot Location

Trail Map

Time: Arrive by ~5:30pm. Ride at 5:40pm

Type of ride: All skills, no drop combined day and night ride. We can split into groups per experience level as necessary.

Speed: Pace is usually in the 7-9.5 mph average speed range depending on the group.  I'm flexible.  Slow, fast, I don't really care.  I just want to get out and ride a bit.

Ride Details: One lap is around 4.25 miles.  The plan is to do 2-3 laps.  If you're interested in joining us for more than the first lap you'll need lights.  There are bail out options and we'll return to the parking lot after each lap.  Each lap we'll take a different route than the previous one to mix things up.

Trail Details/Difficulty: RTP Trails are listed on TMTB as intermediate, but perhaps comparable to Crabtree but a little tighter with fewer roots and a little more up and down.  This is a fun flowy up and down trail that loops back on itself often so the ride options are endless.  There are a few fun technical spots and a very nice bridge.

Post Ride Plans:  Rally Point or some local spot if people are interested.

      Ah. Yeah that would be a long way

    Thanks everyone for coming out. Despite the 2 crashes I really enjoyed it. You find out how well you really know a trail when you are out front at night.

      Thanks for organizing and leading! Was a good time, especially with a front row seat to watch the crashes :-)

      Glad I could provide a little entertainment :-). Thanks for not running me over.

    We've had a little light rain/drizzle over here but I think we'll still be good to go but since it is so cloudy I don't think we'll be able to get through one lap without needling lights like I said in the original invite.

    Will try to make it but not sure yet. Don't wait for me if I'm running late.

    Anthony - Already running into a conflict - Any chance we can reschedule for Thursday or even Friday?

    October 21, 2013

    • Anthony

      I'll keep this ride on Tuesday but I can set up another for Friday. I won't be able to ride on Wednesday or Thursday. If Friday, what time were you thinking?

      October 21, 2013

    • Martin V

      Anthony - Anytime after 5:30 will work for me.
