The 2013 Asheville MUni Round-Up is just a week away. Thirty folks have registered for the gathering – that’s nearly as big as it’s every been. The weather here in Asheville is lovely – the temperature is cool and the first bits of fall color are appearing.
Here are a few announcements to help you get organized for the Round-Up:
- Our first organized ride of the weekend will meet at 4:00 pm on Friday at the Lake Powhatan “beach” parking area (for a map see SCHEDULE OF RIDES/DIRECTIONS on the blog). That ride will leave no later than 4:30. Keep in mind that the parking area requires a $2 fee per person to enter if you are not camping. If you’d like to avoid the fee you can park at a number of different parking area outside on the fee area which will require a short ride. We might suggest parking at the Hard Times Trailhead and cycling in. The Hard Times Trailhead is on the left just before entering the fee area.
- We’ll have photocopies of a map for our ride. However, if you prefer a map with color that you can actually read, you should stop off on your way into Bent Creek at one of several cycling shops. Once you exit I-26 on the way to Bent Creek you’ll pass two shops on your left with maps for sale: Motion Makers and Carolina Fatz. You can also print a map from the blog (go to SCHEDULE OF RIDES/DIRECTIONS).
- We will not coordinate dinner plans for Friday night, however, we’ll have plenty of suggestions for folks to gather if you desire.
Before you leave on Friday, please check the SCHEDULE OF RIDES/DIRECTIONS for a final schedule for the weekend. We may tweak a few things between now and then.
We’re looking forward to seeing everyone in a week. Please drive safely.
