Rode Wine this morning. Sweated like there was no tomorrow. Absolutely love this trail. Thanks so much for all the help in keeping this trail open. I will admit that at times I wonder if it is even worth it to maintain this beast, but a ride like this morning keeps the faith alive.
Have a feeling that this week will get us a bunch of miles on TC and WC. They have received a lot of love this year. All deserved. Can't wait until post-spider season is upon us.
Good ride on Wine last night. The work done was amazing, sorry I missed the work party. We cleared out a couple of new deadfalls, so the trail is still clear except for the spider webs.
I was surprised to run into 2 riders from Aiken coming from the other direction. I've never seen anyone else on this trail.
I can definitely second the spider web part. I started riding Wine yesterday around 4:30, started at Key Rd. and I had to have gone through 20 spider webs in the first mile . I am borderline arachnaphobic so this was just too much for me. I tucked tail and headed back to the truck. I stopped off at Petersburg on the way home and did about 12 miles on Bartram. I did not hit even one web out there. I really want to ride Wine (Yesterday was my first try) but I will have to have someone out in front to clear out the 8 legged inhabitants.
The northern half is in a more open forest, and there's a lot less webs. The best riding is in the northern half IMO, more climbing (tho still very little) and the rocky sections, the southern half is just flat riding thru a tunnel of green.
