Shenandoah Valley spring storms make great route choices!

amazing sky today

I wanted to go huge over Shenandoah Mountain from town
Rough Run is such a sweet route
and then back over again via Rt. 33
I had the gear bagged and sealed - jacket and gloves
but I had to turn and dodge north
the storms were looking a bit powerful
met up with Jack and John while at the crux
got in some nice additional miles with them
we kept nice and dry for the rest of the ride
while surfing the tailwind back to town

north west looks ok
west looks sketchy
beautiful, but sketchy
nice little pockets of mountain goodness
wet roads dry me
wet me and raining good
feels great!
the Rough Run area looks rough
pedal forward into a new plan
north east is looking safe
Jack and John were looking for dry roads too
beautiful views towards Massanutten
Jack carves the dreamy roads
John is happy he didn't cancel his ride
the contrast is amazing!

Road Biking in the Shenandoah Valley - its GREAT!

Always a ton of great options when bicycling in the Shenandoah Valley
Loops and lodging, its all super good

Book at night at a snazzy B&B like the Joshua Wilton House
or shack up at ChrisScottistan

A storm was coming hard
We looped around and about it west towards the mountains
Rode with the buggies and bicyclists
Arrived back into Harrisonburg to wet pavement

Nice evening sky to enjoy with my bicycle ride in the Shenandoah Valley! - a dreamy good time!

The roads over towards Massanutten Mountain are very nice to ride
tooooo' bad I didn't have time to ride the Hoo Ha course at Massanutten
