Ladies, let's ride Briar Chapel and work on our skills by sessioning various features on the trail. If you have ridden Carolina North Forest or RTP and are looking for something similar with more rocks, this ride is perfect for you!
Begintermediate means you've been riding singletrack for at least a year and are comfortable riding many features (roots, rocks, berms, etc.) on a trail, though you may walk a few medium/large obstacles. You can ride 8-10 miles of singletrack trail with breaks and are comfortable with shifting gears, braking, tackling most corners, and can climb/descend most moderate hills although really steep sections may not be your favorite.
Please post in comments any particular skills or trail features you'd like to work on during this practice/ride.
