Richmond Hill, Asheville NC

Some very exciting news about an in-town trail system in today's Asheville Citizen Times:

"Mike Brown thinks it's time that cyclists got to ride their mountain bikes in the city.

And after three years in the planning, he is finally seeing a multi use, forested trail system come to life. In early January, Brown and the Pisgah Area Southern Off-Road Bicycle Association, a local mountain biking club, signed a memorandum of understanding with the city to develop about 5 miles of trails in the woods of Richmond Hill Park, a 171-acre swath of woods just north of downtown." (AC-T)

This is very exciting news. But is gets even better. You can help!!!

Please get out there, get excited, do your part, and then enjoy. This will eventually be one of the destinations on the county wide Greenway that is in the works!!! So get a shovel, grab some gloves and come on out. It's also gonna be 60 degrees on Saturday!!

Have a great day.
