Corner Of Echols Dorm
Walnut Creek Park
Mountain Biking at Walnut Creek Park. Walnut Creek is about 20 minutes south of Charlottesville with about 15 miles of mountain biking/hiking/running trails surrounding a lake. The trails vary in difficulty from beginner to expert, so don’t worry if you’re inexperienced. The club has 1 sedan rack and one hatchback/SUV rack which hold a total of 6 bikes. I have one car, so I’ll need another driver to haul all 6 bikes, preferably with a hatch or SUV. The club also has 5 excellent mountain bikes and helmets to use, so we can check those out on Saturday when we go. Eat lunch beforehand, bring water bottles, biking clothes you don’t mind getting muddy, and warm clothes to wear before and after… temperature should be around 40-45 degrees…. you’ll warm up during the ride! We will leave around noon and return to Echols dorm around 4:00 at the latest. I can add more people to the adventure if I get more volunteers with cars and racks and if people can bring their own bikes. I will keep an eye on the weather…if it rains a lot more during this week I might have to cancel because of muddy conditions.
