I am moving to Charlotte, NC because of a job transfer. What's the road racing scene like in the Charlotte? I am moving from the West, and I have never lived in the South, so any advice, tips, warnings are greatly appreciated.
THANKS IN ADVANCE

|Dont want to be real negative but I moved to the charlotte area (mooresville) from southern california about 8 years ago the difference is like night and day. very few group rides are to connect with a team not to many road or crit races greenville, SC has a spring tranning race series greensboro also has some races. Total number of bike shopes in Charlotte and up to statesville about 10 really no good road shops all mountain bikes First flight in statesville and hickory and cool brezze in mooresville I would say are your closes shopes to call "pro shops".
Best of luck
