Went for a ride last night at Beatty - It will be perfect for a night ride today.  You can really rail around the fresh berms now too!

I should be there between 6-6:30. Probably take it easy on the first lap. If you get there before, go ahead and we'll meet up after.

Congrats to the two fellas that won the raffle. Thanks again to Ultimate Bicycles in Matthews, NC. Cant wait to do it again next Wednesday, hopefully with some warmer weather. See ya'll there!

Well folks,

Its looking really stormy for the ride tonight. Numerous forecasts are calling for it to hit the fan right about ride time(7:00pm).  Im going to make a call on whether or not were riding before 5:00pm. If your planning on coming from a long ways off I'd probably pass.  Thanks folks.

This really deserves more attention. Bryan did some fantastic political wrangling and saved night riding @ Beatty. Parks was ready to pull the plug over safety concerns, but Bryan served it up in a favorable light, highlighted the steps we take to make it as safe as possible and showed them how night riding is an excellent way to get the community involved with the trail..even to the degree that local bike shops now sponsor the rides. Big Props to Bryan (Banjo) for his hard work and service!!!

On a related note, if you are riding Beatty outside the scheduled rides, you are technically breaking the posted rules. If you are questioned by park watch PLEASE BE VERY RESPECTFUL and know that your interaction will either help, or hurt our relationship there. Don't be "that guy".

Never done the group rides and ride there at least 1 night a week. Never had any problems or been questioned. Always see someone riding, didn't know there was an issue. Has the group created some type of problem?? Just kidding..... Would love to join the group ride, but Wed. just dosen't work for me...... have fun....

I didn't know there had been an issue. Way to save the day Bryan! I am going to try and make the ride tonight. We have a very sick dog at home though so I might need to bail if he needs me and now Craig's not feeling that great either so he may or may not ride. I will likely get there early since I work near there but not sure how long I will stay. So in short we are tentative and plans may change last minute.

Our doubts are traitors and make us lose the good we oft might win by fearing to attempt.
