The Virginia Creeper bike ride is one of those rides you must take. If you are not familiar with the Virginia Creeper go to http://www.vacreepertrail.com/ Don’t miss this opportunity to join a few friends and make some new friends.
If you are interested in this bike ride you need to act now or at least by early September. Seating on the shuttle is limited and if you need to rent a bike they could be in short supply so time is of the essence.
Here are the details-
Each person is responsible for making their own arrangements for shuttle service and bike rental, if needed.
The group ride will be the upper half of the Virginia Creeper, Whitetop down to Damascus. This is about 17 miles, mostly downhill. For the more hardy you can ride the complete Virginia Creeper, Whitetop to Abingdon, about 34 miles with only a slight uphill well past Damascus.
Catch the 10:30 am shuttle in Damascus for the ride to Whitetop. There should be room for all of us if you act now. If you want to ride all of the Creeper you can catch the 10:00 am shuttle in Abingdon
Some of you may want to carpool. Coordination for this outing is difficult because some may want to take their own bike and some may want to overnight in Damascus or Abingdon and some may want to ride all of the Creeper. If you want to carpool email Mary, firstname.lastname@example.org by September 18. Please include how many are in your party. We'll then send an email to just those folks for arrangements.
We recommend Blue Blaze for shuttle service and bike rental.
