New River Trail Bike Ride

  • Apr 26, 2014 · 8:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Trip Organizer: _MikeD__ Activity Type: _Rail Trail Bike_ Difficulty Rating: _Easy to Moderate depending on your own turn around point____

http://www.dcr.virginia.gov/state_parks/new.shtml

Bike on the New River Bike Trail, a rail trail that's a 57 mile linear state park along the New River, one of the oldest rivers in the world. See above link for information about the park and pictures of the trail.

The ride will be out and back, so you can go as far as you want and turn around and head back to the vehicles.

It will take about 2.5 hours to get there. You will be meeting me at a designated input point, north of Foster Falls, to be described later to participants.  Participants please meet at the carpool location for caravanning.

You will need a mountain bike or a hybrid bike, a helmet (a must), a replacement tube and pump (if you have one), water and lunch and a change of clothes for the ride back. Bring lunch for along the trail. Also bring rain gear as thunder showers pop up frequently in the afternoon in this area.

This is a day trip, but there is camping available as well as paddling and hiking close by so you could turn it into a possible weekend event if you wanted to. I will be doing this.

BIKE RENTALS ARE AVAILABLE AT FOSTER FALLS IF YOU NEED A BIKE.

Plan to stop for dinner on the way back to Charlotte.

In the event of bad weather on the day of the ride, this event may be cancelled.
