      Hey Joe :) This is just in case Crabtree is closed due to weather which so far seems unlikely. We'll ride Crabtree as long as it's open. By the way, Umstead is easier anyway ;)

      July 10, 2013

    • Mamoon H.

      Hey Joe, doesn't seem like it's going to rain while we're riding, we should be able to ride Umstead :)
