After many years of driving by the place, I finally got an opportunity to mountain bike at the Uwharrie National Forest, located in south central NC. I dropped the kids off with their cousins who live nearby, then Rob and I hit the trails for a couple of hours and knocked off 14.5 miles of combo single track and fire roads. The Charlotte/Lake Norman area mountain bike trails have better technical single track, but the Uwharrie trails have longer and better climbs and downhill runs and a great mix of single track and fire roads. Got a serious cardio workout today.

I took the camera but didn't take any pics since we were having too much fun to stop and snap any. We thought we were fast, but not nearly as fast as these guys...check out these awesome mountain bike movie trailers...I love the overhead cable shot angles in these films.
