What we're about
Upcoming events (2)
We'll be starting near Southpoint and final starting point will be sent out Monday evening. Make sure that your bike is in good working order - tires hold air and are up to pressure, brakes and shifters work and your chain has been oiled. We'll be riding for about 2 1/4 hours and about 26 miles. The ride is fairly flat and shaded and our pace will be moderate (about 12.5 mph average). I recommend a hard tail or hybrid bike, but if you really want to bring a road bike it's ok, though you'll likely be a bit bored. Unicycles....? After the ride I'll be stopping somewhere close, with outside seating, for dinner. Any attendee is welcome to join me. Helmets are required and by signing up you agree to THOG liability waiver statement. Please Note!! Any cancellation less than 27 hours before the beginning of the event will be considered a "no show"
Please share this event with your family, friends and organizations: Help save Umstead State Park from yet ANOTHER perimeter quarry. The Public Hearing for RDU Quarry will be held virtually on June 23. We're seeking people to speak against the quarry. Public comments are limited to two minutes. So we need a village in order speak the multitude of things that are wrong with allowing Wake Stone to put a new quarry pit on Odd Fellows public land and to let them renege on the Sunset Clause that is on the existing quarry. (Your written comments are great, but apparently the bulk of the weight will be on the spoken word. So, please help us speak out.) Don't worry if you don't know what to say or even like public speaking — we'll help you with talking points and a written script. If you're interested in speaking, you must register in advance. Once you register, please send a message to me (via MeetUp) or send and email to [masked]. We'll be in touch!
