In my quest to ride a boatload more & eat a buttload less, I'm riding Little Pisgah tonight. The Florence Preserve is part of the park & has beautiful paths, rhodos & laurel...and my own silent peaceful ride alone to the best view in WNC!
If you've never been, Little Pisgah is gated part of the way up, but the Florence Preserve (bike/hike allowed) is part of it. The landowners at the top don't mind people hiking above the preserve area to the pinnacle. 360 degree views to Pisgah Mtn, Mt. Mitchell, Rumbling Bald, World Edge...the entire chain of the Blue Ridge visible. Simply my favorite view period!
Weight update - 191lbs (hovering after a horrible weekend of crappy pizza) but not lost. Waist was 39.5", now 38.5". While I snuck back up a hair, I've eaten WAY better this week. Wife even noticed. If you want to lose weight & have fun iwth it, bodyweight exercises are awesome. Just google any of these:
