Title: 2010 Southeastern Tandem Weekend
Location: Asheville, North Carolina at Bent Creek Trails
Description: The Spring 2010 event will take place in Asheville, North Carolina at Bent Creek Trails. This trail system offers something for virtually everyone, from easy forest roads to technical singletrack. There’s enough trail at Bent Creek to keep almost everyone busy for 2-3 days of riding. Of course, a short road trip hop to Tsali or other nearby treats is also a possibility.
We have Saturday and Sunday as the main days of the event, and will add rides Friday and/or Monday, depending on requests.
Please plan to join us for a group dinner Saturday night at a soon-to-be named location.
Our base of operations for the weekend will be the Bent Creek Lodge, a beautiful & luxurious B&B located VERY close to the trails. In fact, those staying at the lodge should be able to ride directly to the trails from the lodge. You’ll also find convenient spots to park your tandem at the lodge, so no worries about bringing tandems to your rooms at night (unless you really want to). B&B for tandem mountain bikers? Hey, let’s see how the other half lives!
Of course, we’ve negotiated special rates with the lodge for the weekend, and if you wish to stay longer, the lodge will offer the same discounted rates for SEORTW. Room rates also include full breakfast.
Camping is also available in the area, a few miles from the lodge. We’ll have more details on that soon.
Registration and ride details to follow.
MTB Tandems will be there with several demo/loaner tandems for you to check out. We may also be able to transport tandems to the lodge for those shipping their bikes in from other areas.
