News and Observer publicity: Racing, trails and TORC!!!

“The Beaver Dam/New Light mountain bike race had a rugged mix of trails but stayed on track throughout.”

“Managed by N.C. State Parks, the Beaver Dams trails are fast flowing with gorgeous views of the lake. With plenty of rocks and downed trees, the New Light trails are more rugged; one of its rock outcroppings, known as “The Gauntlet,” is a challenge to all riders. The New Light trail area is managed by the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission.”

“TORC is a volunteer organization dedicated to ensuring the future of mountain biking in the Triangle area through the promotion of responsible riding, establishment and maintenance of mountain biking trails, and preservation of North Carolina’s natural resources.”
