An Amazingly Epic Ride! by Cheryl S.
On May 18th, six cupcakes from Michaux ventured off to meet up with three Harrisonburgers to embark on an adventure. The goal was to ride Elliott’s and Shenandoah Mountain trails in one loop in one day. It was a 12 hour day, 9.5 hour ride time, 75 miles and 11,000 feet of climbing. The ride mostly consisted of beautiful, lush ridgeline singletrack.
Adventures of this type keep me smiling for a long time. It was not easy, but the payoff of the views, spring flowers, conversation, laughs, and smiles was all worth it. I love the variety that Mountain Biking offers. Long days, short days, fast days, slow days, slumming days, and now……
BIG bike days!! (I pulled the trigger)
