Unfortunately I am postponing the Triple Crown Challenge ride this Saturday. The thought of 100+ people riding Kessler in the rain is too unsettling. That trail is technical enough when its dry. This ride will happen! Please stay tuned for new date. Thanks!
WHAT IS THE TRIPLE CROWN CHALLENGE?
Riding Mt. Kessler, Mt. Sequoyah & Lake Fayetteville trail systems all in one ride. Click here for 2015 recap.

About 20 miles of challenging single track trail.
About 40 miles total. Be prepared for 4-6 hours of saddle love.
This IS a ride. NOT a race. IT IS AN ADVENTURE!
