Richmond Hill

Last night Mike B. and I went out for the Friday night Richmond Hill ride.... but it ended up just being the two of us. We rode the pavement to BioWheels then over to Richmond Hill. Mike didn't have a real light with him and the sun was going down quickly so we skipped the school trails and a couple of turns later were headed up the big paved hill to the parking lot. I'm not sure for how long or how many times we looped around and around in the woods out there but it was dark enough to fire-up my lights for the last 15 minutes or so of trail. Richmond Hill is a ton of fun. Tight, Twisty, did I mention fun?, and fast. Once all the trailnames are established, and signs are in place, it'll be a perfect city park trail network.

I feel like I'm getting a sneak-peek at Asheville's next big beginners/after-workers place to ride. In a few years, when the greenway and a few other additions are in place, you won't be able to say Asheville's infrastructure isn't cycling friendly. Next: figuring out how to make the non-cycling public more cycling friendly....
