Bike Camping: To Beans Creek From the Spoke Easy
Posted by Kevin Kennedy on
This past weekend the Spoke Easy crew set out to put together a route from the shop on Elizabeth Ave in Charlotte to a little piece of land in northern Pisgah National Forest. The property is proposed to become an adventure cycling destination and the crew thought it would be fitting to connect this remote location by bike with the urban center of the city.
The goal was to create a route that could be done in three days, self supported and fun. The path included pavement, gravel forest service roads and a bit of jeep trail. The perfect combination for cross bikes.
