FATS Day Trip - CANCELLED
« on: March 07, 2013, 03:43:29 PM »
Due to the impending weather situation tonight/tomorrow the FATS trip has been cancelled. We will look into rescheduling at a later date.

Thanks,
Melissa


Hello fellow Dirt Divas!!!

It?s time for our first day trip of the year to everyone?s favorite trail ? FATS (aka Forks Area Trail System) at the SC/GA border close to Augusta, GA.

Yes, I know it?s a little early this year but we seem to get so busy later in the season and it?s usually pretty warm when we go down there so I thought we?d change it up this year. Let?s hope this change of month doesn?t make it too cold.

FATS is an awesome trail system (classified as an epic ride by IMBA - http://www.imba.com/epics/forks-area-trail-system ) with 6 loops averaging approx. 6 miles a piece which can be ridden in either direction. The trails are fast and flowy with some climbing but nothing too strenuous and nothing really technical other than a few roots and rocks.

More FATS information - http://sorbacsra.org/Trails/FATS.htm

These trails are beginner friendly and you can ride as much or as little as you want ? totally up to you. Getting back to the parking lot is very easy as it is signed well.

We will be meeting in Rock Hill the morning of March 23rd to make the approx. 2.5 hour trip to FATS (more details on this to come).

Please join us for this fun trip. Friends, partners, spouses, etc. are welcome to join us as well and you do not have to be a member to go on this day trip.

You can RSVP here on the forum or email me at [email protected]

Thanks,
Melissa

Hi,
I am new to Dirt Divas. I would love to ride with some Dirt Diva Ladies although I don't think I can swing this trip.  When will you be riding locally?

Also, is there a Dirt Diva Charlotte Face Book Page?

Thanks,
Lisa G.

Lisa - our weekly rides start up again on Tues. March 26 at Sherman Branch. All of our scheduled rides are on the calendar here on the website - that will tell you where we are each Tuesday.

Hope to see you on the trails soon!

Hello!!

I?m afraid there isn?t good news to report ? the weather forecast for the weekend is not in our favor. L They are quick to close FATS due to weather conditions as we do here.

I?m not making it official just yet but most likely we won?t be able to ride.

I?ll keep you posted though. As of yet there has been no make-up date planned.

Thanks,
Melissa
