Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
Free Union, VA
I recently bought a road bike and have been dieing to go on a nice long, but easy, Sunday ride. Join me this Sunday on a relaxing trip through the valley on a 27 mile loop starting from Free Union, out to White Hall, and back around. There are spectacular views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and little traffic along the way. The terrain is generally easy with some mild ups and downs. We’ll be pedaling at an easy talking pace, with some rest stops, for about 2.5 – 3 hours. The weather is supposed to be great.
Do NOT sign up unless you are in decent shape. Hydrate yourself before you ride.
The Club Provides: mountain bikes and helmets if you need them (though be warned – 30 miles will seem longer on a mountain bike than a road bike :), bike racks for transport
You should bring: Your gear, water, water, snacks, money if you want to stop at a store for more water and snacks, athletic wear (no baggy pants for the bike’s chain ring to eat. If you want to wear wind pants that are baggy bring a few rubber bands to use as cufts).
