I registered for the Pisgah MTB Stage Race yesterday, and I'm looking forward to actually training for it this year.
I rode up Elk Mtn and was warned of bears, they must have gotten spooked because I never saw them. But, as I rounded a bend on the Parkway, a 6ft tall mama was standing on her hind legs looking around. I stopped about 75 yrs away to take a picture, but she dropped on all fours and pounced a little giving me a short warning charge. I put the camera away and backed of some more. Her movements happened so fast and smooth, I didn't realize what she was doing. Had I been stupidly close, I would not have know what hit me.
