Doing Your Part by Riding Your Bike

For those who rode on Saturday's Black Creek Permanent, here's a note of thanks for your contribution to a worthy cause:

Dear Mike and the NC Bike Club Randonneurs,

Thanks so much for the gift of $75 from your Saturday 200K ride from Wakefield High School to Black Creek, NC and back again. Your gift will be used to help build and maintain North Carolina's Mountains-to-Sea Trail (MST).

As you know, the route you biked on Saturday is a portion of the MST which runs 940 miles across the state -- from the Great Smoky Mountains to the Outer Banks. Governor Mike Easley declared October as "Mountains-to-Sea Trail Month," and we set a goal of trying to get people out on every section of the trail. We appreciate that the NCBC Randonneurs helped us reach the goal.

We're also delighted you are working to make this stretch a "permanent." It will be wonderful to have you all enjoying it, spreading the word, and reporting any needed route changes, new or closed stores, or other notable events.

Friends of the Mountains-to-Sea Trail is the citizen support group for the trail. We welcome your members to get involved by contacting me or visiting our website at
