    NC NC Riders (NC Squared?)

    I thought I'd start a thread for those of us living in the Research Triangle and just beyond so that we may communicate and set up rides and such.

    It is supposed to be nice this weekend (June 29-31)

    I will probably go for a ride on Saturday, three hours or so. I can either head up through Northern Durham, over to Hillsborough and Burlington for a hot dog and then home via Saxapahaw, or head over to the other side of Pittsboro and putz around the farmland over there. I will probably leave from west Raleigh around 10-10:30 (let the sun warm up a little) and be home by 2 or 3. If anyone is interested or has a better idea...let me know.
    Dance as if no one is watching.

    The research triangle is in between, Duke, UNC, and NC State. (Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill) During the 60's, the state set up the area as a research center and early tenants were IBM and Glaxo. It is still a hub for technology and bio-pharm.

    Considering going to the VIR bike race 9/16-17:
    Champion Cup Series Fall CycleFest of Speed - Sep 16 at Virginia International Raceway

    $15 in advance for 2 days. I would like to camp out on the grounds (is free and simplifies some things at the expense of schlepping camping equipment), but might get a hotel room. 200 miles from my base in New Bern. This is a beautiful road course facility and a lot of fun. Casual atmosphere with freedom to go anywhere including pits. Is NOT a NASCAR level event.
    Anybody going? Would like to meet some fellow NC riders.

    Hey netizen. I have never seen an NC in NC other than mine and one in the showroom. Glad you responded. You, me, and drdubb are the 'onliest ones I knows of'.
    I really want to do this, so will likely go. Also want to go to Blue Ridge Parkway and to NY before it gets cold. Let's stay connected.

    I just moved (just over to Durham), sorting things out. Hopefully I will get out some in the next few weeks. There's been talk of going up to KSL in Oct. If i get to a point I can commit, I might start a thread. The Bill City Rumble is next Saturday. Might cage over there to see the bikes. Always intetesting.
