Unless the trail decider decides to open the trail, the ride tonight is postponed.  The trail was in good shape yesterday if not a little damp but we had a little rain last night. If you see it Open on the homepage then were on, if not were not. We will be out there doing some trail work around 4:30pm...Meet at the tennis courts. Thanks folks.

Great turnout tonight! Good ride with some Good folks.  Gravitythief even came out...and here I thought he just built trails, turns out he rides them too Wink. Your all welcome for the free clinic on how to bust your a$$ attempting a wheelie/x-up/track stand. Hope to see ya'll out there next week for more root-less riding.

In order to get the late crowd in on our rides, the 1st lap will start promptly at 6:30pm and finish up around 7:10-7:15 at the parking lot...FYI.  Multiple laps afterward as time allows.

Was out last night for my first THTB group ride. Had a good time and enjoyed meeting everyone there. Sorry if I slowed the pace with my inexperience and being out of shape...  Embarrassed

Look forward to getting out there on more rides and helping with the trail work too.

Thanks for organizing it and keeping it going.

I take it this is Matt?? Glad you made it out man, don't worry about the pace, and trust me you didn't slow anyone down, we were all very happy for the breaks.  Also my broken chain definitely slowed everyone down!

Yup. Enjoyed having you along. I tried to hang with the fresh-legged crowed at first, so the breaks were plenty welcome.

Hopefully weather plays nice and will see you guys out there next weds.

Also, yeah Brad this is Matt, the MTB noob.

This trail is awesome. love the new black diamond addition on the second black diamond trail. i rode it 3 times. I'll see if I could make it out tomorrow. Also, I notice there was a tree that fell over on the trail on the first black diamond trail. If i had a chainsaw, i'll cut it up for sue but if anyone has one, lend it to me and i'll cut it.  Smiley

The tree is about 30 feet or so after the Turtle Pond entrance to the black (zig-zag bridge trail). Easy-peasy to get to. Need your chain saw.

Technically that section isnt part of the main trail. Some of it, to my understanding, isnt even on park property. We dont maintain it either as part of our trail work. Theres another tree down behind the soccer fields i have to get to and if i have time ill knock that one out too.

I moved the tree over near the soccer fields this morning.  I just pushed it to the left side of the trail, so it could be cutup or moved further with a couple pair of hands.

Yeah, that one started out pretty fast on the 1st lap and strung out the group pretty bad.  We'll try to break into groups next time to keep folks together better.

Good ride tonight. Really good turnout. The group did get strung out pretty bad on lap 1. Next time we'll try to break into groups like Mike said. I was shooting for 45 minute laps. If that's too quick we'll figure something out. Everyone made it back for the second lap pretty close together though. Dont know about yall but I'm ready to go to town on some roots on the high blue trail aka "Randy's section". After all the root removal on the rest of the trail that section's roughness is really amplified.

I wont be there next week cause I'll be up in the mountains but keep it going and I'll see everyone week after next hopefully. Thanks guys!

No worries... I'd feel guilty holding people back. I totally get riding at a pace you are comfortable with. I'm improving my times and 20lbs lighter since I started so... we'll keep on pedaling... just this past December I could not complete 1 full lap at CB without a few dismounts to rest.  Now the only time my feet need to touch ground is that skinny $(*&^#( bridge.   Cool

Scott  (Scott Scale 960)  Cool

This weeks ride is postponed to next week due to rain. Please come out anyway to help out on rehabing the trail to get it back in shape. Thanks.

Doesnt look like this is gonna happen this week either. Beatty is getting trashed on a daily basis and it just cant handle it. I'd like to ride so Im moving this ride to a trail that is open. WWC, Sherman, Renni, or BYT are all fairly close to me and I can make a 6:00-6:30 start time. Post up preferences and we can hit it. If nothings open then I'll probably do a chill road ride down here in good ole' Union County. Pm me if interested.

No ride for me tonight folks. Working late.

One of these Wednesday's we will actually get out and ride. If folks would like to get out and organize themselves that would be awesome. Id hate to see this ride disappear. See ya'll next week(hopefully).

It looks like Beatty is open.  If anyone wants to meet out there I can "lead" the ride. 

If someone else posts up they want to go I'll head that way this evening.

I was planning on going to Sherman (never been) in absence of the Beatty ride... however, if it goes tonight... I will do that.

Hopefully it is not too late to get an update here.

Word on the street is that much of the trail is in decent shape but below the dam is still a disaster.

haha, thanks man. Had a lot of fun. Riding with people better than me makes me push it more than when I ride by myself. I was also trying to pay attention to lines you guys took and stuff like that too. Only been at this for about 3 months and with all the rain I haven't been able to ride as much as I would like.

Had a blast and look forward to more rides with you guys.

For those who've been wondering...

This ride has not been scratched, cancelled, nixed, dropped, canned, or any other adjectives. With the combo of rain and me having an crazy busy summer I havent had time to ride, let alone organize, any group ride. However... Next week... July 17th it is most assuredly ON! I am going to ride next wednesday come hell or high water. There calling for more rain, hurricanes, earthquakes, pestilence, famine, strife, plaugue... but it dont matter! We are riding...If the trail is open Grin.

Whatever trail may be open we'll ride there. Wheels roll @ 6:30-7:00 depending on what trail we can ride. Let me know if you plan on coming. Ultimate Bicycles of Matthews raffle before we ride so come early if you want in. I'll post more details later on..........

I'll probably be there so everyone else doesn't need to worry about coming early.  I mean I do win the raffle every time so what's the point of them showing up to write their names!

There were lots of rumbling but little rain 10 miles south west of Beatty. I think we might be ok, but hopefully hear back from someone closer to Beatty on the conditions out there soon.

New to the area (live in Gastonia) and I need to get back on my bike (its been 3yrs). This sounds like a good place to start that's not crazy difficult or super fast. Don't want to crash your party though.

Come on down man. Its a "social" pace meaning ride at your own comfort level. We stop every now and then to let the group catch up. The first lap is usually done without stopping but the second lap is more mellow with several stops.

Sorry to those who drove to Sherman only to get rained out again...playin storm chasers all afternoon pretty much sucked haha. Hopefully next week momma nature will play nice...

Well folks,

Looks like I'm going to be taking some time off organizing this ride(and my bike). Due to a recent, nagging injury I've decided that the best thing to do is rest and recover. The thought of staring down several months off the bike sucks, but, If there was ever a good summer to hang up the bike its this one. 

Please try to keep this ride going. If someone would like to step up and help host this I can get you hooked up with Ultimate Bicycle for raffle items. If the Docs say i can road ride I'll probably organize a weekly social-pace road ride out of Waxhaw if anyone is interested in that. 

If anyone knows a good Orthopedist, massage therapist, or general Neck/Shoulder/Back specialist let me know. Thanks guys Smiley

I don't mind taking this ride on for the future, but I'm getting some rain right now.  Let's keep an eye on the home page and make a call later today.

I had ACL surgery on my knee a couple of years ago and went to Orthocarolina. Very happy with the results overall. My surgeon was Dr. Flieschli or however you spell it. Did all my PT there also. 

I can help with organizing the rides also. I work in Matthews so it would be easy for me to get to Ultimate when needed. Maybe Brad and I can share the duties. I can't really lead the rides since most of you guys are faster than me but I can get rides started and I can make sure no one gets left in the woods.

Bryan,

I strongly recommend Michael Elkins, LMBT, a neuromuscular and masage therapist. The last contact info I have for him is 704-527-4799, 4 Woodlawn Green, Suite 200 (but that may be at the Southeastern School of Neuromuscular and Massage Therapy - which I believe he has left). Michael worked on my shoulder - rotator cuff - with terrific results. My sister was trained in and practiced the same type of therapy and it can have profound results. Michael is excellent. I hope he is still practicing. Here is some info I found on line for him:

MIchael has been practicing structural bodywork since becoming a Licensed Massage Therapist in 1991. From 1994 through 2005 he was Co-owner, Director of Training, and Lead Neuromuscular Therapy and Functional Anatomy Instructor at the Southeastern School of Neuromuscular and Massage Therapy of Charlotte. He has maintained his private practice in Charlotte, NC since 1994, and the 2013 NFL season will mark his 11th year as the team neuromuscular therapist for the Carolina Panthers.  

I also happened upon good references ON LINE for Davede Varner - also trained in neuromuscular massage therapy (at the Southeastern school I think). 2221 Park Road, 704-204-8209. 

Good luck! We need you riding on the trails!!
Jim

Hey Emily, Flieschli (sp) did my knee also, I tore everything!  ACL, MCL, PCL, and both meniscus, he said it was the worst one he had ever seen.  Him and Aaron got me back up and riding! 

Those guys are awesome.

Hey that's cool. Yeah Aaron was trip. He would have me laughing every time I went in there. I tore my ACL and meniscus and sprained my MCL. Snow skiing.

Thanks guys. I really appreciate the suggestions. Im going to my regular Orthopedist at Ortho in Monroe. Dr. Meade has done every broken bone ive had(which is quite alot) and I'll see if he can refer me to Dr. Flieschli. Hopefully I'll be back on the bike and in the boat sooner than later. Thanks again

Thanks man. Good advice no doubt.

The Doc said that I have a stressed C7-C8 vertebrae. He gave me some stretches and some pills that he guaranteed would make me go bat &^&^ crazy, and reduce inflamation too. I went to bed Tues with severe pain and woke up Wed pain free...been that way ever since. Weird. Good new is I can ride as long as I avoid "ballistic impacts on my spine". Whatever that means. See yall next Wed!

My brother had that same thing.  Pulled something paddling and said it felt like his muscles were ripping away from his back.  Took some pills and a week or two of rest and good as new.

So far this ride is still...
ON!!




If we dont have anymore rain tonight or tomorrow then we're good. Doesnt look likely but you never know. I'll post up if this is cancelled. 

Otherwise...

Meet at the Tennis Courts. Wheels roll at 6:20 sharp for lap 1. Lap 2 starts at 7:15. Ultimate Bicycle of Matthews raffle between laps.

As usual we'll ride at a social pace which means no one gets dropped and ride at your own pace/skill level. 

Keep your fingers crossed!  Smiley

If we dont have any rain...
Tennis Courts. 6:15pm. Ride. Raffle. Awesomeness.

If we get rain I'll be trail working instead. Chopping roots out of Randy's section and cleaning drainage. I could definitely use the help. PM me if interested. Thanks!  Smiley

The raffle will still be held so please come out and help. You'd be coming to ride anyway and even :30min of work would be a huge help. Beatty's riders thank you!

Ok so Banjopickin and Gravitythief are both unavailable for the ride tomorrow night but Craig and I will be out there to keep the dream alive - sorry I don't have any cool pics of wrestlers like Banjo.... First lap at about 6:15, second lap about 7:15. I will most likely be out there earlier than 6:15 also doing some unofficial laps if anyone wants to join in on that. I don't foresee any issues with rain but there if there is any I will post an update.

I don't have any stuff for a raffle so there probably won't be one....

Saw everyone in the parking lot but was trying to track down a squeak on the bike.  Once I figured that out I caught up with everyone towards the end...cool group.  Will try to make the whole ride next time!

David and Banjo are out of town this week so I will keep the dream alive.  

First lap will roll around 6:20 second to start around 7:20.  I think we are still good without lights but maybe throw one in for the second lap if you have it.  I drive a black Honda Fit but just look for the group.  

Trails should be awesome, so come on out!!!

I'll probably be there earlier either working or riding.

Think I'm going to get out there a little early and do some work before the boy scout bridge if anyone wants to join.  Should be there by about 4:40 or so and will work until 5:45.

Anyone planning on coming out, or coming to work for an hour or so before?  If I get a couple we should be able to make good shape of that section pretty fast.

Awesome time tonight.  Good Group, good pace.  I was a little disappointed that banjo didn't fall tonight; usually that happens at least once. 

Matt (aka WildBuck) killed it tonight.  You guys are getting quick.  I need to step it up a bit.

haha, yep, they were gentle on me for my first night ride.  Tongue Thanks again for letting me borrow the light Brad. Let me know when/where and I will gladly meet up to give it back. If not before, then hopefully weather is good for Weds night and I can just give it back then.

I definitely need to pick one of those up before it gets much later in the year.

Sorry for the short notice....

This ride is still on as of now.  There is some weather moving through but it looks clear afterward and we should be good to go for the ride. 

As usual, meet at the Tennis Courts. Wheels roll at 6:20pm. Bring a light for lap 2. I havent had a chance to swing by Ultimate Bicycle for more raffle prizes so we wont be having the raffle tonight. Hope to see ya'll there. 

Rain this a.m. = Hero Dirt tonight Cheesy

Due to a change in my work schedule I wont be able to make the ride this week or the week after next. 

However, If folks would like to ride feel free to do so. I will email Park Watch to let them know we'll be having our scheduled night ride and to expect bikes out there. Just make sure to be out of the park by 9pm. Hopefully I can make it next week. Smiley

I am planning on it for sure.  I am doing an evening ride tonight at WWC too if anyone wants to join me.  Meet about 6-615 at bathrooms in parking lot at WWC.

This will be a no drop ride. We break into groups and there is always someone to sweep so you don't get left behind!

I'll be out there and I am slower so no worries. I will likely get there earlier too and will be riding some laps prior to the official start too.

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

Yeah sorry I think my post was misleading.  We usually break into a few groups and wait at the end of each trail section.  There is never anyone dropped and we all catch up at each meeting point.  It's a blast and I recommend riders at every level to come out.

Great ride tonight! At one point I counted 24 riders!!! About a dozen of us stayed  for the second lap under the lights! Much fun was had.  Cool

Even though they're calling for some rain tonight and possible tomorrow, Im going to be a glass half full kinda guy and say we're riding.

FINS is showing no rain in the last 24hrs (You need to Login or Register to view media files and links), and Sherman was fine this morning so hopefully if it does rain it wont be enough to spoil our fun.

As usual, meet at the Tennis courts. Wheels roll at 6:20pm. Bring yo lights!
