Bicycling in the George Washington National Forest

What better way to go deep into the backwoods and explore the wonders

Whether it is gliding along on singletrack, riding the dirt road
overtop the scenic mountain or ascending a paved road climb to your

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 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.
- tangent!!

Great day in the woods it was!
A dip in that waterfall brings back some AMAZING memories of simpler times!
