TORC Ride @ RTP Trails (all skills)

Back by popular demand.....

TORC RTP Trails all skills

Directions and trail info:
Google Maps Parking Lot Location

Trail Map

Time: Arrive by ~5:30pm. Ride at 5:45pm

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 6-9.5 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 4.5 miles.   We should have enough day light for 2 laps. There are bail out options and we'll return to the parking lot after each lap.  The second lap we'll take a different route than the first to mix things up.  Bring your lights if you're interested in additional night ride lap(s).

Trail Details/Difficulty: RTP Trails are listed on TMTB as intermediate, but perhaps comparable to Crabtree with fewer roots.  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?  Open to suggestions

      We can swing back by the parking lot and pick you up. It gets dark on the trails around 7pm now. If you don't have lights you want have a lot of riding time.

      Hmm, thanks Anthony, that would be a very short ride for me unfortunately. I'll ride my road bike then :) See you next time.

      Hey Anthony. Sorry for the late response....yesterday was a work/travel day. Will be done work by early afternoon today, so think I will plan to ride much earlier today, probably 2-3pm-ish. Will probably go do a solo loop at Crabtree or something. Y'all have fun tonight.
