New Pisgah Video...with message from Arnold

(updated: Jun 10, 2010)

So, a few weeks ago Ed, Michael and I went up to Banner Elk for some riding in Pisgah. We hit some killer trails, and as is the usual custom I made a video of some of the ride. This time, however, I received a special message from none other than my good pal Arnold Schwarzenegger from California. Since I helped him with his campaign for governor back in '03, he thought he'd return the favor.

Some stills from the video



I had water on the lens for a while.


We were going at a pretty good clip. I never speed up footage.

Sweet singletrack.

I believe that is Raider Camp. I bought a map at the little store along Wilson Creek Rd. The map has some of those trails on it. It shows Raider Camp but it shows just as a hiking trail. That trail has changed a lot over the years, especially this winter with all the rain. Needs some TLC...actually should be completely re-routed. Actually a lot of the National Forest service trails in Pisgah should be re-routed. But the locals enjoy them as is with the steep climbs and descents.
