RTF Full Pull BIKING

Sam Goodkind

Don’t report me to Honor, but seeing Eliza’s trip has given me a brilliant idea (call it parallel thinking). What if I led a trip, circumnavigating Charlottesville in a counter-clockwise fashion, on the trail known as the Rivanna, on the last Saturday of the semester? BUT, since humans are no longer hunter-gatherers and we have devised faster and funner (idc …

New Transportation Opportunity for ODC Trips

Mason Riffee

Bygone are the days of glory, when unmasked strangers would agglomerate their breathing bodies within the confines of a car to drive, sometimes for hours, to yonder lands of Shenandoah and Monongahela. We officers reckon that it may be some significant time still before carpooling returns to the ODC game-plan. But no game-plan is without its proverbial Plan B, and …

Intermediate Mountain Biking at O-hill

Matthew Houff

We’re headed back to O-hill but this time we’re taking things up a notch.

Wake up, take a Rez hit (Intermediate mtb at the reservoir)

Mason Riffee

The coy whisper of the morning breeze, sweetly laden with the cool of the lake, speaks to you on this Friday: “what are you doing in bed?” it asks. “Get up; go meet Mason and the others — they’re taking rez hits, and getting higher than anyone in Charlottesville.

Last Minute BIKEPACKING this weekend

Mason Riffee

The student returned wearily to school. For many, this was a new year, a new start, but despite societal premonitions of renewal, the student was more and more tired of his studies. Books were becoming boring; he felt his mind wandering — wandering, it seemed, to a snendy-er place. A place with trails. Yes, a place with old trees, gnarly …

Building Super Gnarly Mega JUMPS
