2017 Superbowl Sunday Ride

February 3, 2017 Uncategorized 0
UPDATE: The Little Cheerful will be up on the mountain selling food to benefit the Shenandoah Valley Bicycle Coalition. Bring some cash so you can buy some goodies! Check out the menu by clicking here.
When: Sunday, February 5 @ Riding at 10:00 AM
Where: Park at Briery Branch Community Center and bike up to Flagpole Knob (Highest point in Rockingham County)
Why: To enjoy winter mountain biking with 100 of your closest friends before watching the big game
Option: A group will ride from town up to Flagpole and back. They will leave Mr J’s on 42 South at 8:45am
What to expect: A cold, fun, mellow ride. Make sure to pack more clothes and food than you might normally bring on a ride. Plan on spending anywhere from 4-6 hours on the bike.
Route: As shown on the map below, all participants will ride up 257 (paved) past the dam and reservoir, to the saddle, and then continue north on a dirt Forest Service Road to Flagpole Knob (Highest point in Rockingham County). After a group picture, riders have several options to descend off the mountain. If you are not familiar with the area bring a map (National Georgraphic Trails Illustrated Map #791) and or ASK SOMEONE! Most riders will descend down “Red Diamond” (Slate Spring Trail) located less than a 1/4 of a mile north of Flagpole. Others will come back down the paved road while the more adventurous and ambitions will continue to Meadow Knob and then choose from the Pond Knob trail or continue to Oak Knob. If you don’t know where you are going ASK someone for direction or better yet find someone to ride with. Just be sure not to end up in West Virginia!
All your friends are going. Just look at the Facebook Event for the Superbowl Sunday Ride
