Local Info

Charlotte has just about every type and levels of riding available minus those long mountain climbs and pro-style jumps. With over 125 miles of trail spread throughout the area, it's hard not to find a place to ride.

It's often said if you can ride the trails here, you can ride anywhere.

Food & Drink

U.S. National White Water Center (WWC / Carolina Thread):
After a nice ride, relax on-site with a large selection of craft drafts and good food at the River's Edge while taking in the kayakers and zip liners doing their thing.

Cramerton ( Poston Park, WWC / Carolina Thread, and Rocky Branch):
South Fork Deli 119 Center Street - amazing beer selection- cheap too. Even better food- also really inexpensive for the quality.

Charlotte ( Sherman Branch ):
Jakes Good Eats 12721 Albemarle Rd - very good food - surprisingly upscale.

Charlotte (Back Yard Trail (BYT)):
The Roasting Company 1521 Montfort Dr -great Southern food and draft local craft beers ... tasty and very affordable.

Plenty of good Breweries and food trucks near Uptown Charlotte in hip Southend and NoDa neighborhoods with many restaurants nearby (like Cabo Fish Taco in NoDa!).
