21 Feb MTB Trail Ride
Join us on March 3rd for a taste of Charlotte’s newest trail. This is a family friendly trail, smooth (for the most part), flow-y & fun. It’s also short, meaning you can rack up as many miles as you’d like. Wheel’s roll at 2pm, for the initial lap, then once we get it done, those who need to roll out, are fine. This will be our first time out as well, but we’ve been pumped to hit this for some time now. Below are some cut/paste specifics from MTB Trail Project. See you then, look for the us at the trail head or in the parking lot.
(If RAIN effects us day of or before, the ride WILL BE CANCELLED. WE WILL RESPECT THE TRAIL & THE EFFORTS OF THE TARHEEL TRAILBLAZERS)
After passing the trail kiosk for the second time, stay on the left side of the road and continue to the Main Parking Lot / Flow Loop Connector on the left to access the Flow Loop. This connector has tons of roots and is probably the most challenging part of the trail system.
After crossing the wooden bridge that spans a small creek, stay right to begin the Flow Loop. This trail is the highlight of the trail system. It starts with a very easy half-mile climb that leads to where the fun begins. The last half mile of the Flow Loop is a fast and flowy section that weaves its way through the trees over many rollers and a few small jumps to end with a few switchback berms that allow you to keep up a high rate of speed.
At the two mile mark, after crossing the bridge over the creek for a second time, take the Main Parking Lot / Flow Loop Connector option on the left and follow the trail back to the parking lot to conclude the ride.
