Do what you like. Stop hating people for their riding habits and get back to hating them for their skin color, religion, politics, and sexual orientation.

David, I'm with you; 7:15 is late to start with a family to deal with.  I wouldn't start that late even in the summer.  Undecided

we'll have to see.  FINS is showing .06" which is fine but they're calling for more.  I'll make a decision by Lunchtime. Thats when the majority of rain is supposed to come in. If anyone up that way can post rain conditions please let us know. Thanks!

Well folks,

Looks like were going to postpone the night ride tonight(1/16).  The weather just doesnt want to cooperate.  The guys at Ultimate have been good enough to sponsor this and I'd rather wait for a nice evening so we can have a big turnout. Hopefully mother nature plays nice next week and we can have a big group for the 23rd.  Thanks ya'll, and we'll see ya next week.

Thanks for putting this together Banjopickin. The Trailblazers need more social things like these kind of rides, and kudos to you for taking the initiative and cranking something up.

Dont thank me, thank Ultimate for getting on board and supporting the THTBs.  And agreed, the club does need more social events(besides trailwork and monthly meetings).  This is just one of a few things I have in the works for 2013. Hopefully we can get folks out and coming together as a club to have fun and be more social.

Glad to hear about this new ride plan. I too would be interested in a lap earlier in the evening since I work very near Beatty and then a second lap with the official group. I won't be able to make it to the next ride on the 23rd but hopefully can do the one after that.

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.

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.

Hey folks,

      I want to go ahead and post up for tomorrow night. The weather is looking iffy at best. There's going to be rain but how much is anyone's guess. Either way, I've been battling a pretty bad cold for two days and don't need to ride in 30-40 degree weather. If someone would like to take the reins and lead tomorrow's ride (weather permitting), I'd be grateful. Keep an eye on FINS for rainfall amounts:
(You need to Login or Register to view media files and links)
 
      Anything under a .10" at the Mckee Rd. station means the trail should be ok to ride. Especially considering its supposed to be windy and sunny tomorrow. Just remember to be out of the park by 9:00pm. Thanks folks and hopefully I'll be back on the bike soon.

Bryan, I was just looking at FINS live and the individual one (You need to Login or Register to view media files and links), and it seems there is a difference in reporting.  I'm not sure if it is an update period thing or what, but FINS shows almost no rain .01, and the USGS shows about .30;  That's a pretty big discrepancy from the same gauge. 

**Edit**

FINS finally updated; over 1/2" in some places.  I am soooooo tired of this cycle.  Angry

I just checked good ole' FINS and its showing Beatty got about .32" of rain. Some places near by got 1/2"! That's just too much to ride tonight so I'm going to cancel for tonight(3/6). Good news is next Wednesday is looking great and we'll have more daylight! Hope to see Ya'll out there. 

Dont forget about the Sunday Social going on at Sherman Branch this Sunday(3/10):

Dang, I must have misread the days.  Could have sworn I saw it was not happening this week.  Looked back at the threads and that was for the week prior.   

Oh well.

Hey folks,

I'm not going to be able to attend the next two weeks' rides (3/20 and 3/27). Im looking for someone to volunteer to help lead these two rides. Pretty much just meet/greet the folks that show up, make sure everyone makes it out ok, and run the raffle. Just PM me if your interested. Thanks.

Hey Bryan, I can do an earlier ride tomorrow starting at 6pm but can't really commit to staying for the late ride at 7pm. Maybe we can do a social lap at 6 but then whoever wants to stay and do a night lap is free to do so? Let me know what you think....

I've got a 40 mile road ride planned tomorrow, but would be up for both a social and night lap.  Let me know if anyone is planning on going.

Thanks for the offer Emily. I guess what I'll do is just postpone the "official" ride until I can get back. This lets whoever wants to show up organize themselves whenever they feel like it. My Dad's birthday is tomorrow and Im going to be in the mountains fly fishing all next week. So our next "official" ride/raffle will be April 3rd. Probably a good thing since I've had a shoulder injury that just wont heal. A few weeks off the bike is going to be tough but needed if Im going to heal up. 

FYI... Anyone that wants to ride Beatty at night just make sure to ride Wednesdays only and be out of the gates by 9pm.  That is the agreement with Parks and Rec. Please respect this so not to jeopardize future night rides. 

Thanks folks, see ya'll in a couple weeks!

OK that's cool. For anyone interested I will head out there directly after work and will be riding one lap at about 4:30 and then a second lap starting at about 5:30. Unless someone posts up that they want me to wait until 6 for the second lap.

I just got home, with traffic no way can I make it there by 5:30.  I'll probably do a 6:45 lap or so.

I think this has been postponed for 2 weeks.

Banjo has some stuff going on and he is the guy who organizes the "official" Wed night ride.

...Is it on?...


4/3/13...IT'S ON!


(You need to Login or Register to view media files and links)


Meet at the Tennis Courts: Ultimate Bicycle Raffle @ 7pm...Ride @ 7:15pm

We'll start the ride during daylight but finish at night so bring yo light, or laser cat.

Anyone looking for a slow pace, I'm riding a very social pace/sweep. The doctor has cleared my shoulder to ride with strict orders to "take it easy man
". 

C'mon out to Beatty and support Ultimate Bicycle and the Tarheel TrailBlazers

So in kayaking we write up TR (Trip Reports) after a fun "trip".  So here is my RR (Ride Report)

As some of you know I've dabbled in MTB for a while but really just got into it about 2 months ago.  Well I've been wanting to do one of these night rides for a while.  Got my SL2k light and headed out the door. 

Showed up to the Courts and met A LOT of really nice people.  And to top it off I won the Raffle!! Thanks Ultimate!   

I've rode Beatty a few times so was somewhat familiar, we headed out kind of broke into two groups and we were on our way.  We finished the first lap without even turning on the lights so of course we had to do a second.

This was my first night riding experience and man was it awesome!  Had a killer time and wanted to say Thanks again for putting this on.  I'll be back next Wed!

Brad

No SS for me tonight. Im trying to rest my shoulder for the SS death ride @ RRT Thursday. I'd ride it as much as possible to get used to it. If your used to having gears, SS can be tough to get used to at first.

Thanks to everyone for showing up. We had about 6 or 7 and it was a great ride. Really cool to start in the daylight and finish in the dark. 49erRider threw down on his new SS and SurlyDave chased down a rabbit on the trail for about 50 yards.  That thing was nuts! haha. Hopefully see ya'll next week.

And since I forgot the raffle item, we'll have 2 next week so c'mon out. Cheesy

Good ride tonight ya'll! Solid group rolling through the woods. Big thanks again to the folks over at Ultimate Bicycle for supporting the THTB's and showing up to ride too. That being said....

Im looking to see if folks would rather ride at 6:30 instead of 7:00. My hours at work are getting earlier and getting done at 9:00 is going to be a stretch for me getting back to the boonies of Union County. Im going to kick off next weeks ride at 6:30 to hopefully get more folks out to the ride and keep us in the daylight. The plan is to ride a lap at 6:30 and then pick up late arrivals at 7:15 for lap 2-3. Any thoughts suggestions?

Good ride tonight folks...in spite of the fact that Dave was not there. He's got fancy crabon wheels and can no longer associate with us mere mortals  Wink...

Thanks to Craig for leading lap one due to my sever tardiness and lack of bicycle.

Also...Congrats to Tyler for winning the Ultimate Bicycle of Matthews raffle. 

Hopefully we'll see all yall there next week. Same Bat-time, Same Bat-Channel.

Yeah, it was a good group, and we stayed together without too many gaps.  There was even a sighting of the Ultimate Bicycle shop owner tonight!  Let's keep the crowds up on these rides, the more people, the more fun it is!

I plan to come out (to the ride, not from a closet) tomorrow night. I know we meet at the tennis court lot but do we also parking there? Just making sure so I don't get locked in.

The ride is a GO for tomorrow.


...Unless it rains/snows a crazy amount. A little rain would be great to cut the dust. 

Meet and park at the tennis courts. Wheels roll at 6:30 for lap 1. Social pace but feel free to go as fast or slow as you want. Ultimate Bicycle raffle after lap 1

Dress warm!!

***Update: Check here before the ride. With the current snow/rain it will be a gameday decision if we ride or not. Fingers crossed.

After "Winter Storm 2013...Snowmaggedon!"...FINS is showing about 0.10" of precipitation at Beatty. 

As dry as its been Im thinking were still OK to ride tonight, if you can brave the cold. Ill have to see what the trails at work look like this afternoon. Freeze/thaw may prevent us from riding...Check here before heading out for a definite.

Also, I gotta check with Park Watch to see if their staff is working to keep the gate open.

IF you still plan on coming please post up so I know.

See ya'll at 6:15 Smiley

We didn't get much at our house it didn't seem like. I work in Matthews and it seems damp here but not wet. I would think it's probably fine but can't say for sure. I'm planning on being there unless I hear that you are calling it off. I plan on getting there about 5:30 if anyone wants to join for an early lap.

Well folks,

Goes without saying that Wednesdays ride is cancelled. However I plan on doing a trail run about 5:45-6:00 out there if anyone is interested in joining. Probably about 3-5 miles at a mellow pace. There not calling for rain that day/night so it ought to be good conditions for a run. Post up if youd like to join. Thanks yall Smiley

Great ride last night folks! There was a little chill in the air but that didnt slow us down too much. Congrats to Oden on winning the Ultimate Bicycle of Matthews raffle. Now we gotta figure out how to attach that bottle cage to your SC Blur...haha.

Next week is Christmas Day so we wont be riding, but hopefully we'll see yall the Wednesday after that. Thanks Folks Smiley

Anyone planning on doing this ride New Year's night? Just got a second light for Christmas so I can have a bar/helmet combo and want to try it out on the trails (I've previously only done night riding exclusively on the road).

There wont be an organized ride cause I'll be in Asheville for New Years, but if the trail is open feel free to organize yourselves for a ride. There wont be a raffle but I'll send the email to let Park Watch know that folks will be out there.

Just remember to be out by 9pm, park in designated parking areas, and get Rad as often as possible. Smiley

But what about Wed night?  Cool

On the fence about this....I am planning on doing the Lake Norman ride at 1pm so probably won't make a night ride also. But you never know. Stranger things have happened.

Barring freeze-thaw issues, Beatty should be fine by Tuesday nite. It weathered the last rain real well.

Thanks,

To anyone who might have been planning on coming, we are going to ride an early lap and then head home so I don't think anyone will be there for the 6:30 & later 
laps.

Sorry about that dude. Craig and I just did a quick early lap and then didn't see anyone so we went on to the house. We must have just missed you. I think we left around 5:30.

Well...Cold...so what?...wanna fight about it...

Im riding tomorrow night if anyone else is up for it. Im not going to host the raffle because I doubt enough folks will show up to make it worth it but c'mon out and ride. Usual spot...Tennis Courts @ 6:15pm. Forecast is a balmy 32 degrees.

Im riding an earlier "hot lap" at 5:40ish if anyone wants to go. 

See ya'll there


***Notice: If the trail is badly affected by the Freeze/Thaw we will call it short to avoid damage to the trail. Thanks Smiley***

I can't make this one but am going to try for future Wednesdays. This is a good time group. 
FYI-there is a large dead tree trunk down just after the bridge that follows the downhill that comes after the valley trail section. Maybe 9 inch tall that might be pack saw able if you got one. I tried to move it but it won't break and was way to long to swing off the trail.

I am planning on being there about 5 for an initial lap, then maybe a second.  Hopefully it is just below freezing...it will make the lap fast.  Rode BYT yesterday and it was FAST!!!

We'll be there. I'll get there for early laps around 4:30 and I'll stay for the 6:30 lap as long as my toes don't fall off.  Wink

3 brave and hardy souls ventured forth into the Polar unknown to ride bikecycles and get rad.

When the ride ends and there's chunks of ice in your beard...it might've been a tad bit too cold.

I still cant feel my face...

lets do it again next week.

I left it open hoping it was frozen. No organized ride tonight.   Please no non-sanctioned night riding. It is definitely on parks radar. They were out there last week with bullhorns asking riders to leave the trails.  Shocked

So is night riding only sanctioned on Wednesday nights?  I had thought if there was soccer going on under the lights then the park and the trails were open. Did I miss something?

Probably goes without saying that tonight's ride is cancelled due to the last few days of rain. Figured I'd post up in case anyone was wondering.

Forecast for Wednesday, February 12 
Snow likely. Cold. High 29F. Winds NE at 10 to 20 mph. Snow accumulating 3 to 5 inches


Why would the Beatty trail czar decide to close if there's 3 to 5 inches of snow on top of the trail?  That sounds like optimum conditions to me.
