What we're about
Upcoming events (5+)
We've pinned and flagged a re-route around one of the wettest spots on Herndon Loop. So lets get going on finalizing the trail corridor, clearing the ground cover and start benching in new trail. The new section should keep us high and dry away from where water has been pooling on the existing section of trail. This should help get the trail open sooner and not turn into a mud bog anymore. Please wear sturdy shoes and long pants. All you should need to bring is water and work gloves. Tools will be provided. Meet at the Catullo Run gravel parking lot.
Let's travel south and enjoy some Lee County trails. Trails are a bit more advanced than those in the Triangle so this should not be your first mountain bike ride. Meet time: 11:45am Ride starts at: High Noon Location: SanLee Park, 572 Pumping Station Road, Sanford NC Ride Details: I will lead a casual paced (6-9mph) ride around this fun set of trails. You're welcome to go faster or slower, but this will not be a "no-drop" ride. I will provide route suggestions and guidance at the start if needed. Trail description: Trails are moderate to difficult with rocky sections in a few spots. Smooth flowy trails with steeper up hill and down hill grades. All features have ride-arounds. There are also gravity sections for you to practice your air skills. You MUST wear a helmet. We recommend bringing a water bottle/hydration pack and wearing bike gloves also. Please make sure your bike is in good working order. If you love mountain biking and care about the environment, you belong with IMBA.
