My #recovery train has officially reached #bike town! Wooot
Yes, with the passage of Labor Day Weekend, Summer is pretty much done. But don’t despair! Fall is around the corner, and the cooler temperatures and changing seasons bring some pretty amazing rides.
I read about the High Bridge Trail on Rails to Trails Conservancy’s Trail Link site, and thought it looked like it would be a good candidate for a weekend jaunt. Not long afterwards three ladies jammed three bikes into one car for about three hours, and realized this trail really does offer an unbeatable way to enjoy the gorgeous colors of Fall in Virginia.
A highly recommended ride!
People often ask me how I figure out where to go when I go on a cycling tour.
Most the bikecations I’ve done have been unsupported, largely because I’ve yet to find a supported tour that fits my schedule and budget. Luckily, I love crafting trip itineraries, and will often dweeb out quite a bit while figuring out all the possible combinations of sights and activities to jam into my limited vacation time frame.
So here is the process I go through to figure out where to go, and how to bike there.
