This is for anyone and everyone who take their biking seriously. I've been cycling for 20+ years and its the only real hobby/sport I've participated in or even been remotely good at. I love anything on 2 wheels. On July 21st the most epic mountain biking event on the east coast will be here - The Off-Road Assault on Mt. Mitchell (http://www.blueridgeadventures.net/oramm/). This event is 60+ miles of pure SingleTrack (see what I did there?) mountain climbing torture. No motor - you're it! FJDerek & I are in. Anyone else interested in the abuse?

10 years ago, I would have loved to do this....

I'd probably die in the first 2 miles now Sad

As long as all 60 miles are downhill then I can handle it. My full suspension bike doesn't like hills.

Haven't registered yet. Though that is definitely a good motivator/accountability. A mini version is the day before. It's a HELL of an event. Literally.
