|That's a Super Moon all right.|
The pre-ride turned up a few little surprises. First, there is shoulder work going on along Flint Hill Road, and there was a lot of debris on the road, including in some of the sharp downhill curves. Exercise caution through there. Secondly, the convenience store in Uwharrie at the top of River Road is closed, so don’t count on it for a soda. Also, I believe that Andrews Store at 15/501 closes at 11 p.m. That means you will not be able to get water for the last 50 miles of the course, from Snow Camp to the finish. Plan accordingly.
Those who will be riding this coming weekend could be in luck – the weather forecast looks perfect. We volunteers will be looking forward to a little spectating.
