Great ride yesterday at Ann Springs. Iím amazed at how the new trails have seasoned and have a much more natural feel to them. Had a great time and will try to get over to USNWC tomorrow with you guys. In the meantime have a very happy Thanksgiving everybody.

WWC at noon works.  Looking to do about 1.5 hours.  Weather forecast shows 42 degrees at noon.  White Chevy pickup, parked near the cell tower.

OK, 12 noon, only been to WWC once before and I didn't notice a cell tower.† Is it pretty obvious?

I'll be in a dark grey Chevy Equinox SUV with a black and green Intense Sniper on the back.† Warning: I'm working on getting back into shape to ride, but right now, I'm kind of slow.† 

Kingsting, you coming?†

Tower is actually part of the buss line tower, has a brown fence around it, about half way up the hill on the left side of the parking lot.  Only tower that has a fence around it.

Where is good to road ride?† Here in Indian Trail, the roads are barely wide enough for cars.† I don't have the courage to road ride around here, although some bikers do I notice.† I have been doing laps around the access roads at Col Beatty.†

Can't really speak about the Indian Trail area.  I have several routes around my house that I ride regularly.  If you're not comfortable though, you won't enjoy it.  There is a business park in Huntersville that is very safe with bike lanes, well lit and wide roads.  Kinda far from Indian Trail though.  Most anytime you get out in the country, its better(safer, lower traffic) but you still need to be aware of traffic.  I have a very small mirror on the left side of my bar and use it a lot.  There are some good routes from WWC over towards Mount Holly that have low traffic.  Laps will work, sometimes get boring but they are effective at building stamina.

Yes, and while the entire set of access roads at Beatty only add up to 3.5 miles, there are a couple of modest hills.† 3 or so laps and I'm toast.† Not the greatest of fun, but better than sitting at home eating Pop Tarts!
