My wife decided we should go to Asheville right before Christmas. Sounds good to me. What can I expect for weather/road conditions? Should I bring a road or mtn bike? Any regular rides? Thanks in advance for any info.

bring lots of clothes! daytime highs will be chilly (in the 40's) and nights will be down right cold.

right now the trails in that area are wet & leafy though in another month the leaves should not be as much of a factor. if the rain continues at the rate it's been going you can expect some sloppy wet trails with snow in the higher elevations.

road conditions should be good, but chilly....

I still have the scars on my right knee from going down this last July. Love bein' a flatlander in the mountains.

Why not take 'em both; that's what I usually do. Good riding in Bent Creek, just outside of town, and several stores have a road-riding-in-Asheville book that maps out several routes.

The weather wont be that bad. Email me and I will give you all the info you need. I can tell you where to go and when to meet group rides. If you want I will even take you out so you dont have to worry about getting lost. My long training weeks start Dec 1st and average 16-20 hours a week so It will be nice to have the company. Bring any bike you want... or both... we have group rides for mtn and road all week

and you said your name wasnt Jeremy Patrisi. LOL!

16-20 hrs a week starting dec 1? A lil early but good luck. You do the rides with Heath, Jamie, Joey, or Andy from Cane Creek Subaru? Those guys are my new teammates for 2003.
