There were a couple of spectacular over-the-bar dismounts today, but I told Bob and Ron I wouldn't mention any names. We did capture a few good videos of us flying around some of the termed switchbacks. Well, it felt like we were flying, but after reviewing the videos, it looked more like a couple of Florida flat landers holding on to their bikes for dear life.
If you enjoy technical trails with some serious elevation change, you will love this place. Paris is just a short detour off the interstate on the way to Asheville, a good way to spend 2-3 hours. Take a map because there are hiking and biking trails and several confusing intersections. Enjoy.
Elevation gain >1000
