I'd skip any race to just ride this...
|Piedmont double black diamond- no joke|
The most worthy trail loop in the state. Piedmont. Stuck inside the Duluth city proper. This trail will hand you a wuppin. Don't drop in unless you have all your faculties or you'll need somebody skilled in urgent care to keep you together.
NOTE: When riding these types of trails it is Team Ricoh style; no pads, XC race bikes, and full on lacra (aka spandex). Did I mention having faculties? Nope.
Clarification- Team Ricoh, one of many factions (aka 'clans') of LCR
