Default RRW Retirement Krawl

April 13 at RRW for the last comp. John and Robin are retiring to TN and will no longer be running RRW Fl. There might be someone else taking it over. I'm not sure yet. Let's make this a big event for these guys to see how much we're gonna miss them.

I’m going to try and make it. I need to ride one more time before they close. So where else is there to crawl in central Florida? I hear Newred in Ocala has a crawler area? I guess natural places are far and few, all Florida has is sand.

I'm trying to get to go but right now it's not looking good. I've heard someone else is going to take it over so it will still be around. There is also the tiny truck trail at the vortex pit on the Santos bike trail. It's about 10 min drive from RRW and is a great spot to crawl. I have a 13' x 16' crawl course in my backyard and building a trail at my in-laws house. Other then that there's some spots in the villages that's pretty much rip rap and Moss Bluff lock and dam on the low side that has allot of rip rap but only when water level is low. Don't think New Red has their crawl course going yet. If you end up coming up to the vortex pit or RRW get ahold of me. I'm always down to crawl some shit and to meet new people.

I'm pretty sure they are open on Friday think it's $5 to run all you want. Other wise go the the vortex pit. Go through the first gate fallow the road back to the second gate where there's a little map/info board go just past that right behind that fence on the left side is the tiny truck trail. Should be a flag or something there. At least an hour of trailing. It's a great spot. Just remember mountain bikes have the right of way, but there shouldn't be any bikes on the tiny truck trail. Here's a video I shot out there a couple weeks back. https://youtu.be/zyF-qQzN4l8 How often you get to go run your rig bro? I'm in summerfield about 5 mins from RRW. Trying to find someone local for an after work run at the vortex one afternoon. Should go crawl some rocks together.

Well I didn’t end up being able to make it to the retirement crawl, I’m going to head over today for a while though.

I went to RRW today, it was a pretty good turn out. There is a new owner that’s going to keep it going, his name is Richard, seems like a really cool guy. Glad to see that its going to keep going strong.
