I turn right and go on around the top of the ride, where La Cima morphs into the California Riding and Hiking Trail.

A multi-day mountain bike ride report with friends traversing the Pisgah National Forest for a week of autumnal riding in western North Carolina. On this trip we had dry, sunshine-y, warm afternoons followed by cool, crisp overnights, which was nothing but perfect for five days of pedaling up and down the topographic folds that lie in the vicinity of the Davidson River campground.
With much needed rain in the forecast, including the possibility of thunderstorms, the spirit in the air for the weekend-long SDMBA Mount Laguna Trail Fest presented by Zoic Clothing was nothing but positivity and cheer.
