of Virginia's George Washington National Forest then by bicycle.
Whether it is gliding along on singletrack, riding the dirt road
overtop the scenic mountain or ascending a paved road climb to your
favorite mountain top sunset picnic spot. Waterfalls are always a
Visiting Bear Draft Trail - it is looking very good.
Caught up with some friends for the SVBC friday meeting at Flag Pole
Had a chance to ride with our IMBA guys, Rich Edwards AND Frank
Maguire, that was pretty cool!
IMBA is pushing forward a great plan to improve the Blue Ridge Parkway
Roanoke connection. Alternative "C" Check www.imba.com if you 4
minutes to comment and make a difference for everyone. Alternatve C
will keep the Roanoke Greenway from being blocked!! This trail has
vastly improved the quality of life for those in Roanoke. Residents
and visitors now have a safe place to walk, ride, and run. This
connection has become a great commuter route too giving residents a
GREAT opportunity to live a healthier lifestyle.
Great day in the woods it was!
A dip in that waterfall brings back some AMAZING memories of simpler times!
