So, let's say you've got six hours to kill on a crisp, fall, Saturday.
What could you do for six hours? Hum, let's see... You could detail your car. You could clean the leaves out of your gutters, rake the yard and mow the grass. You could watch Gone With The Wind. You could read all of Dan Brown's books. You could do any of those things, or come ride your mountain bike at Briar Chapel.
TORC, and the good folks at Briar Chapel, invite you to spend the day on your bike at 6BC, a premier mountain bike endurance event. Come ride the trails wending their way through the Briar Chapel Neighborhood. Listen to the dry reeds of the beaver pond rustling as you cross Pokeberry Creek. See the craggy slopes and woods of Bennett Mountain. Watch the leaves waft out of the Oaks, Maples, Gums and Beech trees. Jump some logs and hop some rocks.
Then join us for the after party put on by Briar Chapel. There will be a food truck rodeo, music and kegs of Full Stream Beer. Riders, of course, eat for free. There will be a modest charge for others.
Please register so we know you and your guests are coming and can be sure to have enough food and beer on hand. If that's not enough incentive, the first 100 paid registrants get a 6BC T-Shirt. Here's the link:
6BC, of course, is part of TORC's 2011/2012 Endurance Race Series. Curse at the Crab is scheduled for Saturday, February 25th. Meltdown at Harris Lake is scheduled for Saturday, March 24th. If you're planing to do all three events, buy a series pass and save yourself some money! Here's the link:
FYI - Series pass holders get first dibs on the T-Shirts.
Finally, please keep in mind, we don't really put on races for fun. The racing program is one of TORC's best ways to generate funds for trail projects. So, come out, enjoy a day on the trail, and support TORC. Podium finishes are cool, but we're all winners when we have funds to invest in trails.
