This is a really nice, laid back jaunt thru some pretty areas. Lots to look at and the route is new for me. Tried this last year and got sick before the ride........no repeat performance please!!! I know a few of the usual suspects went on this ride without me and found a great lunch spot. I hope one of them remembers where the "Flaming Pig" restaurant is. This is a full 5 hours of ride time and we will be ending in Charles Town, Wv at the Sheetz on 340 and Marlowe rd.

Looks like Gary found us a great lunch spot..... http://www.springhousetavern.net/

Reviews are great and the menu looks good......

    Sounds like this was a great ride!! I recently camped out at Wolf Gap w/ a group & hiked up 2 Big Schloss & Tibett knob. What a beautiful area & amazing vista views from the rocks!! Too bad the RSVPs filled up so quickly. I would have loved this ride.

    Fun day today, some nice roads and a bunch of new ones for me as well. I tweeked the route so no more gravel road....Loved Blue Ridge Mountain road, Fort Valley road and Wardensville Grade rt 608 on the way home is just a lot of fun. The Spring Street Tavern was awesome...great find Gary, a new favorite and Wolf Gap road was awesome. Thanks for riding with me today....till next time ride naked it's harder than it looks....!!! 8-)

    Glad my fellow Maryland riders got to enjoy riding through my beautiful home state of Virginia and the great roads the Valley of VA has to offer. I thought I knew all the good roads In VA but was able to learn a few new ones especially glad I found out about Wolf Gap road that was awesome! The Tavern for lunch was really neat good choice Gary! Drew as always thank you for a superb ride! Good to see the usual crew and to meet Zerek and Tom Rogers. Hope to ride with everyone again soon!
