Hey all. Have been up to Croom 2x. Slept late this past Sunday (doh! how many warnings to reset clock???) and missed the guided ride. Had printed the map and put it in a plastic sleeve. We were somewhat prepared.
We took off from the parking lot and were doing well until we got to the pits area. Being the weenie that I am, we walked a lot.
I liked the moguls and the longer inclines and longer, more gentle descents, but I am in no way ready to head down a long steep hill at a 45 degree angle (over a log which would send me sailing into the air)...(Oh, I can hear all the younger and more brave saying how cool that would be) and go back up the other side. equally as steep. So, is there a way around the more challenging stuff?
We kept hitting FR9 but didn't know where we were on FR9. Thankfully we ran into someone with a GPS and were able to find our way back.
What does the Yellow Trail look like? Is that more weenie friendly?
What about the Red Trail? 'Clay Pit' doesn't sound Jen friendly, either.
I'm just trying to get a good ride in. If we park at are #2, do the yellow loop, then the red trail back to the bailout onto Croom Road, would that give us a nice workout without too much difficult stuff? Hope to ride there again Friday.
Any input would be appreciated.
