Raleigh Singletrack with Selene Yeager
June 12-14th, Selene Yeager visited the Raleigh area. Selene was invited by TLC for Bikes and North Carolina Bicycle Club to check out the Raleigh bicycle scene.
Fit Chick – Selene Yeager is an ultra endurance mountain biker as well as tri-athlete, an author on subjects such as bicycle racing, health and fitness, nutrition, strength as well as a writer for ‘Bicycling’ magazine.
During her visit, Triangle Off-Road Cyclists was invited to speak about the mountain bike scene, NC Greenway Alliance was invited to speak about our greenway systems and Oaks and Spokes was invited to speak about our urban ride venues. Selene got in some quality road, mountain and greenway rides with all of us.
TORC President, David Houskeeper and TORC Activities Director Valeries Myers, along with a few other TORC members, got the distinct pleasure of giving Selene a tour of Lake Crabtree County Park trails as well as some of the ORC area. Despite the heat and the humidity, we had a great ride on some great trails. Like most avid mountain bikers, we quickly fell into the familiar mode of simply enjoying the trails while enjoying good conversation. Twenty-one miles later and 1100′ feet under our wheels, we were tired and Selene was adequately warmed up for her, later in the day, 35 mile greenway ride.
TORC would like to thank Selene for spending some time with us and we thoroughly enjoyed showing her some of our busiest urban trails.
We hope to see her again in the future.
Thank you Selene from all of us at Triangle Off-Road Cyclists.
