I once in a while so the Uwharrie forest run. Also have done 218 one or two times.

I wouldn't mind joining if my work lets me, and would like to have more people doing "Run to the Hills" (the run I mapped for UWharrie)

I think I found you on Facebook and sent a friend request. Saw your TotalCyclist posts..... Interesting business. I am also a MTB rider and there are quite a few of us who ride. I am sure you'll probably kill the rest of us but hey, we need to do a MINI and MTB run someday for sure!
One thing I have really learned is the MTB and MINI Runs that we do with the group drives are very much the same feelings. Stay in the groove, pay attention to everything around you, and nothing is ever the same thing twice no matter how many times you have driven or ridden the trail/twistys!
