Rode the Wine today with the West family on their brand new Trek/Gary Fisher 29ers. Had a great time. Two bridges still out, lotsa leaves on the ground to hide the roots. Hardly any water in the crossings. Still the most beautiful trail in the CSRA hands down. Saw one other rider and a truck load of Boy Scouts on a hike. Everyone needs to ride this trail,it's awesome.

I was probably the other rider; passed you all on Wine...
On Turkey there was a guy walking with a large pitbull-looking dog. He was nice enough to keep him on leash when we were in the parking lot and passing each other on the trail. Also, a couple of hunter-looking people off the trail, in the woods, wearing camo and orange - not sure what they were doing on a Sunday.
After riding both Turkey and Wine today, I have say the leaves are way louder on Wine than on Turkey. On Wine, I couldn't even hear the hub/freewheel clicking.
Beautiful day for a ride and Wine/Turkey is a treat this time of year.
Do you enjoy our trails?
If so, can you volunteer 5 hours for trail work in 2015 or, if you're too busy, donate $50 to SORBAcsra?
I think your "hunter looking people" in orange were Fred and his boy scout troop. We ran across them yesterday on Turkey Creek--they had a camping permit and were located about 1.25 miles into the trail. Their campsite was about 500 feet off the trail, midway between the trail and the creek. I think Fred said there were about 10 of them. When we talked with him and a couple of the boys yesterday, they were wearing orange.
We also rode Wine yesterday! Beautiful day out there--leaves are gorgeous and the weather was perfect.
Agree with your comment on the leaves--they were "deafening." You couldn't hear another rider behind you if you wanted to. Love fall riding!!! ;D

I met one of the scout leaders at Bartram a few months ago. He and his son are mountain bikers too. They are super nice people, I had a nice chat with them in the parking lot before they left and they had camped Turkey Saturday night. Its great to see fathers and sons doing stuff together like that,there's definately not enough of it going on.
