After the ride in Tsali on Sunday I drove through Pisgah National Forest to Brevard NC. I stopped at The Brighter Day Coffee Shop for a cup of coffee and some free internet access. Very nice place for coffee, highly recommended.
I made a reservation at the Holiday Inn Express in Brevard. Very nice hotel in a great location. When I come back here to finally ride the slickrock and maybe Pisgah this is where I will stay.
The weather forcast for Brevard on Monday called for cloudy skies in the morning and rain afternoon. I took the short drive from the hotel to the Dupont State Forest to go on the Eastern Slickrock ride. As soon as I got out of the car the wind was very strong which made it feel very cold. Then I got the bike out of the car, the back tire was flat. Then it started to rain. This was the point where I decided to abort and packed it up and headed south for the day. I was on my way to the Forks Area Trail System in the Sumter National Forest in South Carolina. I'll put the details in my next post.
