Night Riding at Harbison

If you have not heard, they are trying to open Harbison up to night riding.
Even if you can not make the ride tomorrow, please email Friends of the Forest and let them know you are interested in riding out there.
It has been a long time since we have done any riding out there....Legally. It sure would be nice to have it as an option before the time changes.

Congratulations in race 2 & 3 of the Charlotte STXC series to the HBW racers. Saturday and Sunday's races had Jamie battling the Kenda squad from Mt. Airy NC. Out numbered, but managed to out wit and overpower most of there team. Jamie pulled out two bronze finishes for the weekend. This puts him well in the hunt for the overall mens expert series.

Damon and Toby P also made a showing in the singlespeed class. Toby pulled out a bronze and gold for this weekends races. Saturday's race had Toby off the front for the first half and slowly fading back into a battle for third place w/ a Kenda rider. Patience was the key for Sunday, Toby sat on the lead group of 4 till two to go and launched attack after attack till the line. Pulling out Victory #1 for the HBW squad in 2008.
