Mark your calendars. Put in for PTO. This summer we are hosting a group ride on the Mid Atlantic BDR route. Come for part of the ride or ride the whole 1000 miles. The route is a combination of country highways, gravel roads, dirt roads and a small number of stream crossings. The route stretches for nearly 1000 miles through historic towns, civil war battlefields and some of the most beautiful mountain top views on the east coast. More info at: https://ridebdr.com/mabdr/ and more details of our event on our Facebook event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/850833045381841/
We will travel to the start in Damascus VA the weekend of the 18th and return on or before the 26th. Not everyone can be away for that long, but you are welcome to join us for as many days as your calendar will allow. There are plenty of good places to jump in or out of the ride. We’ll meet on Saturday and ride in part way for the first evening of camping. Then Sunday will begin the first full day of riding.
We will host a planning event (Video Conference / In shop meetup) in May/June/July to answer questions, plan the route and work through logistics. This is a beginner to intermediate BDR route with a few Optional segments that are more advanced off road. Some riders may choose those and some may not. There will be a mix of camping and motels. However, if you’re not into camping there are motel options at most every stop planned (or nearby).
Please RSVP on our Facebook event page or call our shop to get your name on the list of attendees for the ride so we can know a head count. We will send out invites to the planning party to those who are RSVP’d as a “YES”.
