What we're about

First and foremost, we ride. How could we not with the roads we have around here? We have a monthly ride on the second Saturday that specifically accommodates new riders. Additional rides as anyone sees fit to schedule, and the occasional email blast "Hey, it's a great day to ride. Anyone in?" All members are invited to use the group email address to broadcast their plans to the membership. So, ride safe and get some two-wheeled therapy.

We're also planning some non-ride events for all. Stay tuned.

3rd Annual Elkins West Virginia Ride Led By Gus

Location visible to members

Announcing our annual end-of-summer ride to Elkins, West Virginia led by Gus. This year we will meet at the top of Afton Mountain (exit 99) off I64 at 8:15 and plan to leave at 8:30 sharp. There is a big kettle corn truck which parks in an abandoned parking lot immediately off the highway. Take a right at the end of the ramp on US250 and it’s the first right. It’s right there at the entrances to the Blue Ridge Parkway/Skyline Drive.

The ride is about 3 hours & 15 minutes each way. The 8:30am start time will leave time for lunch and to be back in Charlottesville by 5pm.

Staunton Area Riders: If anyone is going on the ride from the Staunton area - we can meet you at Jakes's Exxon outside Staunton at 9:00am. Just let us know on the event chat if you want to meet at Jake's. Otherwise we will push on through and make our first stop at the Confederate Breastworks Overlook on the Augusta/Highland County line. Other stops will be determined along the way. Like previous years we will plan to eat lunch at Smoke on the Water in Elkins
1455 Allegheny Hwy
Elkins, WV 26241

This is an intermediate+ ride with lots of tight curves and narrow mountain roads. It is all paved. Can't beat the scenery in Virginia for riding & West Virginia may be even better.

This has been a great ride the past two years. Please RSVP as soon as you can.

REMINDER...THE START LOCATION FOR THIS RIDE IS AT THE TOP OF AFTON MOUNTAIN.
