    Harryhammer,

    It's been awhile since I heard an update on Brendan. His blog hadn't been updated other than MachVll periodic updates.

    I used to join his posted rides every now and then back in the day when Carolinarider site was very active.

    I hope he is doing better and would be good to see him again.

    I love riding old 18 on Sunday mornings. Definitely many more faster riders than I. Slow but steady....:p3rry

    Old 18 is one of the best roads in the foothills . There are several other good roads in the area if u know where to look.

    Be careful if you go up after a rain. There are spots where gravel washes down onto the road. Most of the time it is clear and a fun road. Some decreasing radius turns on it too so don't get too froggy.

    181 is another great road riddled with tight turns with steep embankments just to throw few more adrenaline to your ride.
