Paul and Steve's PreRace Adventure
We did the first half of the race just fine. 10 miles. Less mud than last year, but that can change. At the point where the new race course leaves the old (intersection of Fender and Mountain Ridge Road, we could not find the trails back to 233. We did find several ATV trails that went in the proper direction and might be on the race. We did not cross 233. Instead, we met up with another Paul. He is an MBM member and has a cabin near the Furnace. He took us on a couple of his local trails. So, we don't know what the race will hold on the other side of 233, but had a great ride on some new (to us) trails. We will try again. Even if we don't find it, the riding is fine! 24 miles.
