Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
Let’s hit up some mountain biking at Panorama Farms. No experience is necessary, these trails aren’t too bad. Here’s a description from their website…
“Since 1996, we have been the local secret. Now it’s your turn to come and ride the best there is in mountain biking in Central Virginia. When we designed and built Panorama Trails, our goals were simple: We wanted to offer a unique course that would attract anyone who owned a mountain bike and who dreamed of riding it off road. We wanted a course that was fun and safe where all could perfect their mountain biking skills. We take care of everything else. No demands are made for your time, and there are no user conflicts. Panorama Trails is simply a place for mountain bikers to ride and enjoy their sport, no more, no less.
It doesn’t take long for a newcomer to Panorama Trails to see why this place offers a special experience in mountain biking. With more than 25 miles of sweet single-track trails that traverse 850 acres, Panorama Trails is fast becoming the hottest destination for mountain biking in The Old Dominion. You will find the scenery extraordinary as you blast your way across the rolling terrain of this magnificent farm. The Blue Ridge Mountains serve as a phenomenal backdrop as you cruise the open pasture meadows, hay fields, mature hardwood forests, bold streams and tricky log crossings. While the beginner and intermediate peddlers can find a whole host of trails to conquer, our well-designed trail system will also challenge the most adventuresome riders with just enough hills, rocks, roots, off-camber sections, and of course the best of all, lots of long uninterrupted loops.”
Congratulations if you read all that.
I am flexible depending on what people want to do as far as end time, distance traveled, and pace. If we have enough people we can split into two groups, so people can keep different paces.
Right now I am going to set the trip attendee limit to 4 and add people based on spots in cars and club bike availability, so do not be afraid to sign up for the waitlist.
If it is raining, or if the trails are too wet to ride, the trip will be cancelled.
Club provides: Bikes, Bike Racks, Helmets
You bring: Water bottle, $8.00 fee for entrance to the trails, If you have a helmet, bike, and/or bike rack, bring them.
