Just for clarity we will have an Explore the Trail Ride at Modoc on August 6th - 9:30am. This is an intermediate level trail but is suitable for fit novices. It is an in-out trail for a total of 12 miles. This is a great trail and the terrain is varied - temperatures should be in the 80's during the ride - come check it out.....bring your friends!
There is also an intermediate level rolling skills clinic being held by Dustin G that will be heading out from the Modoc Trailhead at 8:00am the same day!
The regular Explore the Trail ride is on for 9:30 the temps will be in the low 80s to start and mid by the end only 10% chance of rain this morning. This is a great trail, if you haven't ridden it before grab your bike and gear and head out there.
Take Fury's Fury (28) north - cross into South Carolina - about 15 miles to Modoc - turn right on 23 - trailhead is about a mile on the left.
The skills clinic was a sucess I'd say. We had a good turnout, around 10 people I think, plus or minus. Hopefully everyone learned something, I know I did. I finally rode the first creek crossing both directions, the whole thing. It's really counter intuitive to point your front wheel at that big rock and pedal as hard as you can hahaha. There were a few spills, but nothing major (hopefully).
Okay, videos from the skills clinic! They're all really short, less than 20secs for most of them. I'd put them together but dont have any software.
The battery died before we made it back to the 1st creek crossing.
I really hate that I missed this one, I was looking forward to the skills clinic part of the ride. I had car trouble yesterday and was unable to make the trip. Luckily it was a minor problem, but unluckily it prevented me from driving that far.
Looks like the ride and clinic was a success, hopefully it can be done this way again in the future. Great videos DG!
