Do you like to see wildlife? Would you like to be in the middle of nowhere? Are you self reliant? Then this event is for you! Choose from a 10,20, 40 or 60 mile loop. The 10 mile loop is a beginner guided wilderness double track ride. The 20 and 40 are mix of single and double track trails and the 60 is a mix of gravel,single-track,grass, mud and sand. Piggy's Revenge is scheduled for January 7, 2018. $40 gets you a great adventure, a cool Tshirt and a bratwurst hot off the grill.
These last two week-ends, I have begun riding the trails around the Carlton Tract. There is still a lot of standing water. The recent rains from the two tropical storms have flooded a large part of the wilderness area. The deer are out in great numbers, however, fewer pigs were seen. This year, I will try and pick the best trails to form the loops. The goal is to avoid the very sandy or plowed trails we rode last year. Right now, I think I have a rough idea on how to connect the hardest trails, including some single track and some road and the majority will be gravel (80% or more). A cyclocross bike would work great on the gravel but would be a little bit of a challenge to ride on the single track section. I might include several creek crossings and some fence jumping though still to be determined.Watch out for the jumping deer .More to come soon .
