I decided to take advantage of the unseasonably wonderful weather we’ve been having this week to get some riding in. I put off a little work today since Winter is supposed to return tomorrow, and as it returns, my good friend Alan is departing at the end of the week for Colorado.
He’d never been down to the Intrenchment Creek trails so I figured I’d get him to ride the Fargo one last time in Georgia.
I’ve known Alan for 15 years and this move is huge for him. He was the reason I turned up my dream to ride the Great Divide into a real plan. I’m jealous of the riding he’ll be able to do but I’m sure I’ll find an excuse to visit at some point.
I’m still finding new trails down in this part of the city every time I go down there. Sometimes the trails are so faint that it’s easy to get lost, and other times you chase a deer trail for a half mile and end up at a dead end in a patch of privet.
I don’t know why it took me so long to start riding down in this spot since it’s so close to home, but now that I have it’s pretty easy to string together this, the unfinished Beltline and a few other spots to get some good dirt in on a not super long ride.
