A great list of folks and organizations that have contributed
A great promotional idea
The concept is very good
Thanks to everyone for contributing to this!!
Brought to you by the Virginia Greenways and Trails Task Force

Big bummer that we didn't have direct/specific mtb representation on this
But it is more disapointing that we didn't have a huge trail agenda to contribute
IMBA has a MOU with Virginia State Parks to work together
I represent IMBA regionally
Hopefully you represent IMBA too
Why weren't we working on this?
Why wasn't I working on this?
Are mountain bicyclists only reactionary?
We have to organize better together to represent our statewide opportunities
The draft of the VA Trail Networking promo brochure looks great
Except it does not have a picture of a mtb'er on singletrack
I will send them this comment
A tiny bit of contribution from my end
How can you contribute?

I hope the helmet camera action comes out
Fawley had the sketchy conditions while he was on lead into WV
dark, wet, loose cinder in the corners
I had the nice clear clean action rolling back on the VA side
Nick had to put in some effort on those cross tires to keep the speed up on

Sweet fixy park ride with Sultan the 6 pack champ while the ground was still frozen this am - good stuff!
always good to wear an extra layer of clothing when there is snow all about
even with the same respective temps
brushing up against the snow can really draw the warmth out of you

bishop gave me this helmet last week
i was using my climbing helmet because it is more adjustable
he thought i look like a dork
i always look like a dork
i made his really nice trek helmet look dorky today
anything to stay warm
function over form for me!
that is Mole Hill over yonder
looking back east towards town and Massanutten
this guy was riding home from school
maybe a Mennonite youngster
maybe just a farmer
you can tell riding his bike is a huge part of his life
i had to stop and take in this view
jr. started putting the drop on me
looking north west towards whitegrass
jr. is almost out of sight
heading up the backside of Mole Hill
looks like snow in WV
dropping over the hump that is Mole Hill to the eastI was able to get in 1 hour out in the Valley
Dreamcicle...shiney and scenic!
Good to share the roads with other cyclists
VDOT needs to remember that roads are for travel
not for cars
travel by any mode
The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) is responsible for building, maintaining and operating the state's roads, bridges and tunnels.
Our mission is to plan, deliver, operate and maintain a transportation system that is safe, enables easy movement of people and goods, enhances the economy and improves our quality of life.
-this says nothing about cars, the focus is movement of people, doesn't matter why you go where you go or by what mode you choose to use
