Formally known as the “Southeast Mountain Unicycle Festival” this can be the official thread, from here on, for discussion regarding this event. I’ll start off by providing a link to my write-up about this year’s event that was held over the weekend of September 25-27:
Oh I sense a Raccoon Mountain MUni Weekend coming! I’ve been hinting to Asheville crew that they should come down my way and hit up the area. They won’t be dissappointed. Let’s put our heads together and come up with a mutually agreeable time to meet up at Raccoon Mountain?
How about the weekend of Oct. 24-25th? Halloween (Saturday) day I have to help with a local race, but I suppose I could ride Sunday Nov. 1st? What is the consensus? Oh and after last weekend, who’s afraid of a little rain?
I’m planning on sometime the weekend of Oct 24th-25th. I’m waiting to here from a friend from Decatur, GA who wants to ride (along with his friend). I’ll post to here when I pin down which day. Rain or Shine!
If look on there and follow the “TVA Access Rd” down and to the left where it T’s into the reservoir perimeter road you’ll see a small lollipop pull out on the left just before the T. That is one of the main parking areas for the trail system. Let’s try and meet there. If the lot is full there are several other places we can park, but let’s just try and meet there for starters.
I wish I could make it out for this but sat. off will be hard to pull right now. I hope you guys have fun and get pics and such. I’m definitly looking foward to the century at the silver comet though…see ya…
Sorry I haven’t posted. Was going to wait until I had photos/video available. Me and “hitarock” from Decatur, GA met up and we rode the entire trail system, every trail. The fall foliage was superb! Reds, oranges and yellows were spectacular! I didn’t have a GPS but I’m pretty sure we rode at least 19 miles in around 5 hours. We took frequent breaks and as there is quite of bit of interesting natural trials lines we would hit those up as well. Hitarock took a ton of picts/video so I’ll get that up on a seperate thread when it’s ready. IMHO this is the best trail system in the SE (outside of North Carolina of course ). And it is only getting better as more sections of trail are being added. I highly recommend this place for a road trip to ride to. You won’t be dissappointed! The general layout is a large loop around Raccoon Reservoir, the basic loop is all pretty tame but there are offshoots that leave the main loop and lead to really buff single-track and then re-connect with the main loop. So this is a great place for all ability levels as you can pick and choose what to ride. More later.
