Mountain Biking Virginia features nearly fifty of the most exciting and diverse mountain bike rides in the Old Dominion. Race down jarring, endless singletrack in the Blue Ridge Mountains, enjoy a scenic ride along the Potomac River, cross deep river gorges near Mount Rogers, explore remote coastal environments, or cruise the quiet backroads of central Virginias horse and wine country. Local mountain biker and author Scott Adams points the way to rides as varied as sea-level treks along the dunes at False Cape to 4,000-foot climbs to the wind-beaten summits of Flagpole and Reddish Knob. Youll get the inside track on everything from the best time to ride, to local events and attractions, to whether or not you should bring your dog. Also included: detailed ride descriptions; easy-to-read route maps and elevation profiles; accurate directions, difficulty ratings, trail contacts, and more; tips on riding, trip preparation, and bicycle maintenance. Wherever you ride and whatever your skill level, let Mountain Biking Virginia be your guide.Adams, Scott is the author of 'Mountain Biking Virginia An Atlas of Virginia's Greatest Off-Road Bicycle Rides', published 2003 under ISBN 9780762726561 and ISBN 0762726563.
