Video: Lacondeguy Crashes Hard at Cruz FEST
Yep, I always jump up and start talking fast when adrenaline hits, then am on the ground writhing 10 seconds later.

Call of the Wild - Bikepacking the Coast Mountains
Great write-up and great pictures! I'm going to risk some nays by making one complaint though: Author seems pretty cavalier about the whole grizzly country thing. Maybe just trying not to make too big a deal out of it, but that sounds seriously life-threatening--like decent odds of death. Seems like an unnecessary risk if he knew he'd be in that area with them, but in any case lucky to get out unscathed.

Video: Far and Wide in Austin, Texas
Lived 6 years in Austin. Biking there sucks, on the whole, and the pretentious hipster vibe captured so well in this video also made me SO happy to leave.

Video: West Coast Riding Sometimes Bites Back
Maybe he was riding a little loose, but nervous and tense my a$$. Was some good riding, and looked fun as hell

East Bound and Down: Southern Fried Shred
Thanks for the advice. I think I'll try Pinhoti and Windy to start with.

East Bound and Down: Southern Fried Shred
@upside: Colorado has all different kinds of dirt. The state itself has as much mountainous area as the whole Appalacian/Smoky/Blue Ridge area, and it is more varied. If you go to the wetter parts of the state (Durango/Telluride, Aspen, Crested Butte), you get dirt that is pretty much the same as is Pisgah. If you're in Fruita it's desert conditions, if you're in the Front Range it's dry mountains. Much more variation in CO, there is pretty much everything (though you might have to drive a long way to find it at times). Also, I'm not sure how you know for a fact that you would not like Fruita/Grand Junction if you have not ridden there (also, if you don't like Fruita you also don't like Moab or Sedona). It's pretty much incredibly fun, great riding in one of the most unique and cool parts of the country. And, by the way, I am stoked on NC and GA. Only lived here for a while but I love the trails. So I'm not just trying to pump up CO because I'm from there. And FWIW, Brevard area would still be a top destination if it was in CO; it is that good.

I know I shouldn't get in the middle, but I think you're both wrong. I grew up in CO and now live in Atlanta, and here's my take: North Georgia, and definitely Brevard, have legit riding. There are some trails there as good as CO. That sad, putting NC or GA above CO is nonsense. Fruita, Crested Butte, and Durango area are all better than Brevard area, and that's just the "destinations". You can find world-class gems all over the state as well. Not sure about Oregon, Washington, but I'd put CO against any state and feel pretty confident. Though it probably can't compete with BC.

Just moved to Atlanta, and can be in Ellijay in an hour and 20 minutes. If I have two days, and time for two trails, which should I do? Bear Creek and Pinhoti (which Pinhoti?) Should Windy Gap be in there? I can handle the steeps and tech, but I also like a good flow. Any advice is appreciated. Can't wait to check out the area!

Recharging the Soul in Pisgah
Ha! Well, I guess I'll just have to get used to the leaves. Most of the loop I was riding straight into the late afternoon soon, so that didn't help either. Think I'll try to return late march/early april is schedule permits.
