Back to the track
I love riding the steep banks and this was a racing workshop for new track racers
There were several college riders in the group and so much strategy to think about
It is a blast going all out on a fixed gear bike, I just have to remember I have to keep pedaling as I crossed the line.
Then time to bar hop/eat. We passed a place called The Pump House on the way to the velodrome, so we started there, drinks and wings while sitting on the roof top bar watching tubers on the Catawba River.
Then following a recommendation, it was a seafood dinner at the Rock Salt in Charlotte (this is a wall on a bike shop)
a night at my favorite camp spot in Uwharrie National Forest
After the race, I wanted some peace and quiet, this place covers it! Until almost dusk, then a thunderstorm hit, including pea size hail…. I didn’t bring my rain fly because I didn’t bother to check the weather. Opps!
A short hike to Widow’s Creek Falls

I didn’t camp, just stopped for a trail run and a picture of the truck. I will be back to camp and hike!
Weekend of camping and mountain biking!
Quick camp site, just because.
Day 2 – DuPont State Forest. No bike pictures, but after the ride I hiked to Triple Falls
and Hooker Falls for a quick swim
Then to New Belgium Brewery for recovery fluids.
and the drive home sunset.
An Instagram follower asked me for interior shots of the Flippac
My camp spot for the night, the race start for the North Carolina Mountain Bike State Championships.
Back to Tsali for a Southern Classic/SERC mountain bike race
I found this rock when picking up firewood.
