The Snowstorms that we have had this year, combined with consistently cold temperatures, have thrown WNC mountain bikers for a loop. The trails are in a thawing freeing cycle that leaves them too muddy to ride, lest they be destroyed. Some are traveling to dryer places, some hit the road. I have toyed with the idea of road riding. I usually still ride the mtn bike and stay on the dirt roads. Bent Creek has some great dirt roads that are very family friendly. And also great for a good fast spin that really helps fitness.
Have a nice ride.
