In an effort to not go crazy because I am not riding CO epic trails, I have been spending more time in NC. For only 2-2.5 hrs away, it certainly can fit the bill. Drove over with Joey to meet up with Scuba to ride a few good ones. We shuttled up and dropped a car at the top of Heartbreak and then rode up old US70 to Kitsuma Peak and the Eastern Continental Divide. From there we descended back down Young’s Ridge to the Old Fort picnic area. My knee has kept some residual swelling since the last big swell event about 3 weeks ago and while it wasn’t 100%, it was enough to get me up and down the mountain.
