My ability to take leave from work right now is very limited as I just started a new job. But I am certainly up for weekend day rides and/or a Saturday/Sunday overnighter. Looking forward to it!

I'm up for a one-day street ride on either Saturday the 15th or Sunday the 16th, with the 15th being the best bet. The other weekends in December are already filled up with business travel and/or family stuff.

Who else?

I'm in for the 15th.

There's two gas stations on the SC side of that bridge. We usually meet at the smaller of the two for our dirt rides, so I'd ask if we can do the same for this one.

I'll be in the RT and am looking forward to it!

I'm in for the 15th street ride. Looking forward to it. Hopefully, nothing will come up in the mean time that requires my attention back in Maryland during that weekend.

Congrats on the new job and the move!
Hey Dave! Yeah - sorry about that. It's been rather hectic for me since last Feb. What are you up to? Do you get down this way any? I'm grateful for finding something a little more steady for work in these parts and the area is as nice as VA and WVA. Happy that I've not had to give up nice riding.

dec 15 route

as of right now the route is going to be as follows. might make some minor changes depending on weather and the size of the group we have. I am going to do a big loop to the west and north of the starting location, weather ie. temp and time dictating how far north we go. we will not be more than an hour or so from our start at any time during the ride. we will head out west jumping back and forth from nc to sc along the state line on some two lane farm roads winding around and south of the crowders mt , king mt.state parks area. we will likely make our first stop at the burnt mill campground and swimming hole for anyone who wants to take a dip and cool down after the first section. from there we will head north crossing I-85 near grover sc , wind around some backroads up thru waco nc and the falston , lawndale area. after a short stop we will continue around the south mountian area riding some really good switchbacks south of morganton and valdese nc. There is a really good burger- shake joint in valdese we can grab a burger at if we want. I would like to do a short loop northwest where we will pick up rt18 south back toward home grabbing some backroads back toward lincolnton and gastonia. I can adjust the route to get us back home at whatever time we agree on. we should be able to do the entire route and be back around 4:30 ish. here are a few pictures I have taken along the ride route on other trips.
