Over the weekend The T.O.D. crew headed to Brevard for a early season MTB meetup. What we didn’t know at the time, we were about to ride the most intense mountain bike loop in the Looking Glass area. The 16 mile loop has a 6,500ft elevation gain in just 2hrs followed by a hike bike descent that takes you through some of the most remote old growth forest in Western North Carolina. This ride was a beast of a climb, but the payoff was well worth the effort. We all managed to pull it off without any major mechanicals or injuries.
