To the Land of Bikes and Beers

Editorial: No updates since January.  Man, where has the time gone?  I can assure you fun has been had.  Without further adieu, here is the beginning of a recap of our most recent mini-adventure. 


Well, we did it again.  Well some of us did.   Ahem.  We went to the Mid-Atlantic Mecca of bikes and brews:  Pisgah!  Agendas varied, but MS, Lucaca and I departed Tuesday night and returned Sunday night.  Five days of riding, breweries and shenanigans makes for a lot to talk about, so I am going to do my best to keep it short.

Part 1 – Rocky Knob Mountain Bike Park, Boone, NC

Boone was a bit of an excursion from our primary destination, but well worth the time.  Arriving late, we enjoyed some Lap Lap of Luxury and awoke with visions of Rocky Knob Mountain Bike Park.

Hear that y’all, it’s a mountain bike park.  We were there back in 2012, but it wasn’t quite finished.  It’s a great little trail system that packs a lot of punch, as I would find out the hard way.

Highlights included the nicest La Quinta hotel ever (seriously), Ol’ Hoss trail, me taking a digger on PB&J and visits to Lost Province Brewing and Magic Cycles.

It was a great start to our mini-adventure.  In the PM, we departed Boone for South Mills River group campsite in the Pisgah National Forest.  More to come…
