Inclement weather posted-poned the orignially-planned May 11 grand opening of Franklin County’s newest mountain bike trail to Saturday, June 1, which was met with warm temperatures and blue skies. Old Buzzard is one of several trails at Waid Park in Rocky Mount. The new quarter mile downhill jumpline trail incorporates elements of flow and freeride features, which park officials say are appropriate for mountain bikers of nearly any skill level.
