Any Tidewater Va or NC riders?

Hi,
Looking for folks to ride with. Not a good idea to adventure ride alone and Iím not too familiar with available Va / NC adventure rides.

I'm in western north Carolina. Asheville area. Always looking to ride. Reach out when you want to consume fuel and food😁

Yes, he's very knowledgeable of the surrounding area.

Hey, I'm looking at the Backcountry Discover Route starting in Damascus Va. Have you been on that route? What's the level of difficulty? An OK solo route? Anyone want to ride it in March time frame?

I live at the end of section one of the MABDR. I'm only familiar with a the sections in my county and one county over. No problems at all - "toughest" sections are USFS dirt roads. I really can't say much about the rest of the trail. Would like to do it sometime. March will be a bit nippy around here, FYI.

Plan to ride it with some friends in May. Our plan is to depart Raleigh on May 22nd, spend three days riding some planned routes up to the Northern start point of the MABDR. We'll then spend 5 or 6 days riding the MABDR South to Damascus.

Can't wait!

and then.... 2021... we'll plan to ride the NEBDR!

Thanks cfesting. Yes, I guess March is early in the year for that area. Would like a couple 2 - 3 on the trail, probably hotels.

Yes. If you're up for riding with a bunch of 50-ish year old guys whose idea of "camping" is a cheap hotel and place a priority on finding a local brewery on any given night!

Drop me a PM with your email address. I can share our very prelim details and as things firm up. Right now we're three riders with a potential 4th. You would be number 5 (assuming the 4th guy commits).
