North Meck Trail Expansion Opens!
The trail expansion at North Meck moved into high gear this past Monday evening, and the trail has now been opened to all riders. Although an accurate assessment of the actual trail length has not been made at this time, estimates are in the half mile range. The trail features a twisting downhill (with options to catch some quick air), followed by a double swithback climb, that twice drops off of a ridge. The rider climbs out approximately 50 feet from the new trail entrance, shooting the rider right at the huge earthen log crossing.

Special thanks to Chad, Tucker, and Larry, Boy Scouts from local Scout Troop 19, for their efforts. Without their help, it's doubtful the trail would now be open to traffic. And of course, a big thank you goes out to the core of our crew, Kim Rodden and Dave "Bear" Carman, for all of their efforts over the past two months.

We will leave the decision of whether or not to race the new section in the capable hands of promoter Neal Boyd, as the Charlotte Mountain Bike Race Series makes it's stop at North Meck this week.

Now y'all get out there and ride it!
