I have always listened in envy to my biking buds talk about riding some legend trail named Warrior Creek.  Even more amazing was the recent 38 minute sell out for the 6Hours of Warrior Creek Endurance Race.  I kept studying my friend’s Warrior Creek Strava feeds dreaming of what my own first dirt-date would be like.

Much to my excitement, while visiting family in the Triad, I was invited to an Warrior Creek early morning post-Thanksgiving ride by Eric Phillips at Skinny Wheels Bike Shop in Mocksville, NC.

Eric was a very patience bike tour guide as not only was I limited to a riding a Single Speed (geared bike down), but I was often caught stopped and drooling at the breathtaking scenery of the Kerr Scott Reservoir.

Much to my riding pleasure, Warrior Creek has recently cut some new trail on their main loop and it seems to have added several miles now totaling to 14 miles of flowy single-track.

Some have bragged that these trails are the one of the best in North Carolina, and although I am still growing in my single-track exploration, I agree.

My hope is that WC will be open to more dirt-dates in the future and hopefully this is only the beginning of long lasting relationship.  Oh yeah, hoping that maybe I made such an impression with WC, that she will introduce me soon to her close friends- Overmountain Victory & Dark Mountain.
