The Couch Potato

November 1, 2014

Registration is Now Open

The Couch Potato is epic mountain biking with a short enough course to make it doable from ‘off the couch’.   Rolling over rugged mining roads, classic Pisgah single track, cursing climbs and giggling descents, this course will test your skills and desire as you explore the intoxicating terrain of the Pisgah National Forest.  Burgers, brews and a camp fire will be at the finish to comfort you after a long day in the saddle.

New for 2014 - Timed Enduro Section!!! We'll be timing your descent on Davidson River Trail! This will allow for a safety accountability of riders mid course and showcase the true descenders in the endurance world.  The timer at the start at the top of Davidson River will have a hand held chip reading device and the bottom timer about 1/4 mile before the road will have a small structure in place with a chip reading device attached to a laptop computer.  Riders will not need to slow as they enter or exit either timing area but can continue to ride normally along the route.  The "enduro" section will be included with registration fees and applicable for all participants in the event. We'll be handing out Enduro awards too!  

This race is limited by the US Forest Service to 200 participants

* Pending permit by the USFS
