We’ve reached broken record status. From four inches of rain, to full sun and whipping wind, real-time conditions updates are proving to be ultra-tricky this season.
We are yellow lights top to bottom, meaning no matter where you end up, ride with caution. If you encounter a lot of mud and/or are leaving ruts, be prepared to turn around.
Hardy in Wilmington generally handles the rain really well. It’d be a good option if slippery conditions are not your jam. Lussi Trails, the Flume and Pisgah may be wet in spots but should be good to go for the weekend. Best to let Craig Wood, Dewey, PMD and Loggers Loops dry out until tomorrow. Please know we can’t be everywhere all at once. Our staff and volunteers are out and about keeping a pulse on things as best as we can. Share updates if you have them! We appreciate you.
AND NOW, THE GOOD NEWS! Today’s strong breeze is working in our favor and the new gravity trail at Craig Wood will be open and ready to ride tomorrow (August 12th) but subject to future closures should the rain monster return.
Don’t forget, we’ll be camped out at the Scott’s Cobble Parking lot (8/12, 10-4) slinging stickers and offering some No Drop Group Rides…
10:00 - Kids’ Cruise on Putt Putt & Pirate's Cove at Scott's Cobble
10:30 - Women's Ride! A no drop ladies' cruise to check out the new trail!
1:00 - Intro to Craig Wood no drop tour for ALL including a lap (or two!) on the new trail.
If you prefer to choose your own adventure, feel free to lap at your leisure. Group rides will start and end from the Scott's Cobble Trail Head. Take Country Club Lane off of Route 73. (Across from the Cascade Inn - you'll see a Craig Wood sign). Once on Country Club Lane, look for a parking lot on the right. If you reach the golf course, you've gone too far. We will have a BETA tent/table set up from 10-4.
