My Friend and I rode the trail last weekend, I was on my Trek he on his walmart-fallapart. It was a great time, aside from having to wait up every 12 or so miles. The trail was great, a couple of spots I swear I heard the dueling banjo's and was looking for hillbillies in the woods (flashback to Deliverance), but it only made me ride faster.
I was passed by some really nice people, some real hardcore riders and some just out for a stroll. On my way back I saw the lady that made cycling look like a sunday stroll in the park and decided to race her, just at the point when I thought I was far enough ahead to take a breather she passed me on the left and all I could say was Hi as my mouth was agape in awe, and I had the thought "I want to be like that when I grow up" even though I'm in my mid twenties.
After my pelvic area heals up and I pick up a new seat and some padded shorts I'm going to really get into it. Hopefully I'll find some other cyclists for some competetion. Anyone who is interested please shoot me an email. email@example.com
