Hey Eric,

Have you ridden it? It is something I have always wanted to do. I am just not sure if I could ride all the way down there without being too sore to ride...so a break in the middle may be just the thing...

If you plan to go this summer, let me know, maybe I will ride down and meet you and we can ride down together...maybe I'll bring some more Wolverines along so you don't feel lonely... :eek::doorag::p

Yep, the section below Pisgah Mountain is open. We initially started in Asheville and rode South for 6 miles until we reached the barricades. Then we tracked back and headed toward Pisgah Mountain. It was still barricaded there. So finally we were able to get on near Waynesville. I rode it last Saturday with the Atlanta Wing Masters.
