What were once "secret" trails in Charlotte have now been opened up to the general public and the Dirt Divas will be taking a tour of the Backyard Trail (BYT) on Tues. Sept. 10 @ 6pm.
We will meet in the parking lot of the Marion Diehl Center at 2219 Tyvola Rd. Charlotte to begin the ride. The trails are across the street but there is no parking allowed at the trail head so please park at Marion Diehl.
There are approx. 13 miles of trail which can be described as technical, rocky, tight, twisty and old school. There are some technical trail features like ladder bridges and drops but all can be bypassed so you do not have to ride anything you are not comfortable with.
We will have several guys on this ride who will be our trail guides instead of Divas leading the groups since they know the trails better than us. We will still break up into groups though - intermediate and a slower paced group.
I do not recommend true beginners to start on this trail. You should have some experience with a few of the other local trails like Sherman and WWC before riding BYT.
As always you do not have to be a member to join our Tuesday rides and guys are welcome too.
Come check out something new and different in the local mountain biking scene.
See you there!
