...but I did help mark the course, which turned out to be a 30'ish-mile ride on a Friday afternoon/evening, and a lot of fun.
As you can see, I wasn't given a ton of tape, but I did what I could with what I had. I was happy to hear that Clay and Chris rode ahead of the racers the next morning and marked the intersections a little better. From what I've heard, it was a great race, and only a couple of people missed a turn.
I got out for a short ride the day after the race, and just played around a bit. Below is a pic of a creek crossing on Buckhorn Gap Trail.
That evening, my old college roommate and his wife rolled through town on their way home from Charleston. We headed out for some good food and dessert, and had a nice time catching up. The next day, we headed into Pisgah after a big breakfast at Gatekeeper's. I decided to take them up to Looking Glass Rock, for one of the best views in the Forest.
While up there, I was able to catch a decent photo of one of our local, blue-tailed Skinks, which you may
recognize from Cane Creek's logo.
