We usually go down the first week of May every year and it's 65-75 degrees in the day and 40's at night which is good for hanging out around a campfire. I also heard it could get pretty humid in July/August time frame and that means bugs. We're going down to Little Coal River March 30-April 1 for a weekend get away, they say it's in the high 50-mid 60's that time of year so it should be pretty comfortable riding but the nights get chilly.

CBG - The sticky at the top of the page is for the 4th annual H-McCoy Thumpertalk ride. Can't predict the weather, but it's bound to be a good time if you can make it.

Been there in August, November, and March. It's always fun. Wet in November though... don't remember any out of the ordinary bugs on any of the trips.

I'm thinking mid to late July. It'll be hot but dry. Bugs don't scare me!

I think I'm hillbilly enough and may even head down for the TT ride. I just need to find some people to head down with.

Just gotta ante up my two cents worth.

Anytime it's warm enough to ride is a good time... As long as your moving the bugs won't bother you and smoke from a campfire keeps the bugs away also.

As for being dry? LOL. The mud holes around here never dry up. At least you can go around them when it hasn't rained in three months.
