    C'mon over and have a great ride from the best trailhead in the Southeast! Load up your campsite with as many as you wish {without muffin-topping your neighbors!} for $25/$35 per night, Onsite bathhouse and food service. Feeling the need for more civility; book lodging at the Broxton Bridge B-n-B
    { www.broxtonbridge.com} or check hotels in the Walterboro SC I-95/ Hwy 64 intersection area

    Expect trails ranging from tight technical to 4ft bush hog to dozer, probably best suited to street legal single cylinder bikes.

    January 12th and 13th, hope to see y'all there! I'll be in the 1963 Grumman Bread Truck/RV conversion; stop by and say hi!

    Sounds like fun. I know a lot of guys who have had fun at this event before. But whats the story on the enduro? I was told there was land use issues. If the land can be used for the DS event, why not a race, or was there just issues with some of the land? I had a lot of fun at the enduro last year and was looking forward to it again :cry

    Well, it is all family property, and there were issues within the family. One member basically doesnt wish us to ride his property. This cost us some mileage, and left with a choice of running a "lapped" enduro, we decided to run a 2 day DS instead. There are options in trail management that you can get away with in the DS ride that would never fly in an enduro. We have other properties, but the distance to them makes the DS only.

    We are looking for other properties that will allow us to run the quality of enduro folks have come to expect from us, starting way back in the 70's with the Swamp Fox.

    I rode this event (or the forerunner) back in the 90's. Rode the dual sport on Sat and the enduro on Sun (till I houred out:D). The Family Riders put on fun,well run events.

    The most fun I have had in years. Perfect weather - perfect mix of technical and flowing - magic stuff. As Ron said on several occasions: If you didn't enjoy these trails you need to sell your bike.

    Thanks to Marvin and all the Family Riders.

    The single track was the hardest I'd ever ridden! Epic!! I didn't get any pictures of it because I was trying not to die, but the video above from last year that Laura0117 posted is awesome! :freaky

    On the second day, I was hurting in muscles I didn't know I had. I only have some pictures of the mellower stuff and some sightseeing we did. I'll definitely be back for more next year! The Family Riders put on a great event!

    Ag, didya wander over to the Civil War earthworks down by the river at the campground? It is where the Battle of Broxton Bridge was fought. There is a recreation of a section of the bridge, and you can still make out it's path through the many channels.

    Notice the grave surrounded by old iron fence in the first section each day, just after passing the skeet stations?
