I noticed that today while we were riding. I like it.

I'll second what otter said. I was having some issues, got a professional fit done, and old shoes were part of the problem. Looking at my old shoes, it would appear not much was wrong.

Otter you must not have a dog and I just moved to the area where I don't have friends or family that can watch him. But don't worry, fiddo hasn't made it to Brown County yet, nor will he ever....

Is a dog crate for your home or apartment not an option?

It is a permit that you simply need to have with you if you are stopped, there isn't any type of check-in. I haven't been stopped and checked for a long time, but after the problems that I went through several years ago getting caught without one (hefty fine paid through a federal court), it won't happen again. Since Tipsaw is my closest trail, and I ride it often, I usually pick up an annual permit early in the year. An annual tag cost $35.00 and are good for one calendar year expiring Dec. 31. Day use tags cost $5.00

Can you expand on your prior troubles? How did you get caught? What exactly happened? Maybe inform those who think about skirting the laws.

Trails were in great shape today! Rode all of them. There were just a few small sticks here and there.  I wish FL was closer to the indianapolis area. That place is a blast!

Limiting forum use would be a bad move, at best. What about riders visiting from out of state? There have been several times I've looked at forums of other mountain bike groups that are somewhere i'm going to visit to get info on trails and maybe get together with a local. Would what is proposed going to affect that?

Was there an incident that is causing them to enforce this rule?

and brakes that don't require fancy bleed kits either. *cough cough hope cough**...

Hope does NOT need fancy bleed kits. Hope is all i've used since 2000 or 2001. All very serviceable without any special tools or bleed kits.

They've been at it a long time. I have to think they have the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it"  mentality.

Celito lindo is a good mexican restaurant in uptown Brevard. I eat there every time i'm in town. You can't go wrong with any trail suggestion. Dupont is easier riding (and pretty scenic) while pisgah proper is a little more difficult. Ask for help at sycamore, they're good people.

I don't think it is new riders bombing down hills. It is most likely people who have been riding for a while and they probably know the rules of the trail, i just think they don't give a crap. I might be stereo typing here, but new riders don't typically wear some kind of "kit" when they first start. There are days i'm surprised there are not fist fights from trail users arguing over who has the right of way.

We rode bc a week ago friday night. It was probably as busy as i've seen it at night. I think we passed 6 or 8 other people in the woods.
