I guess they raised the price again. Its now $15 per bike not matter if kid or adult and $5 for anyone else who has no bike with them. Someone from Surry who knows the Slade family told me that they where cutting the woods the past 2 years and you can tell. Most of the trails are cut fresh as it looks but still pretty tight. Also quiet sandy in some sections.
Here you can see some pictures, a rare day when I took the camera on the trail. It has two pages... I went that day with a guy I met here on TT and my buddy. http://photobucket.c...des-2005-05-21/
My riding buddies haven't gotten their bikes dualsported yet so we are stuck with this place for now. But its fun with the CR - thats for sure. The XR has to sit at home, wouldn't be the right bike on those tight trails. The other option is the Currituck Motocross in Moyock but that for I got the CR initially...
The only thing that I really don't like about Slades in Surry its that all the idiots seem to go there, no matter if 4wheeler or dirtbike you can find them there... I am sorry but stupidity seems to rule there for 50% of the riders. When we go on Saturdays there are more people without the right gear than those with it. The funniest guy I've seen there was someone with a construction helmet
tied with a T-shirt to his head, boots
seem to be luxury and those 4wheelers have no respect of a little kid riding, they pass within a foot space... so I normally ride behind my son waving left and right to cover his butt.
Like last weekend, those guys next to us on the parking lot had the nicest language, using in every sentence the "F" word and that with my 8 year old son next to them. On top one of those idiots lost his wallet on the trail and was cussing even more when he got it back empty - LOL
Oh well, we have fun riding anyway. I've met some nice guys there too who you can tell do it with more brain...
