New Riding West Virginia Website

I have started a new website dedicated to those riders wishing to explore West Virginia. I frequently see requests on forums for information about visiting and riding around the state, asking for information about what roads to ride, what places to visit, and (of course) interesting places to get good food. With the help of fellow riders, my goal is to make this a Must-Stop online for those riders. Although I am a musician, not an English or Journalism teacher, I will try to keep the writing standards "above average".

The site will be divided into 3 main sections: Street Ride Reports, Back-Roads Ride Reports, and Food/Destinations/Lodging. The Street section will cover main highways and county roads - basically any 2- or 4-lane paved road with a painted center line. The Back-Roads section will cover the narrow paved back-roads as well as graded, govt-maintained gravel roads such as Dolly Sods and the Laurel Fork area. We will not cover trails (such as Hatfield & McCoy or private-access roads) on this site.

Guest contributors are welcome to submit Ride Reports, Photos, and/or Food/Lodging Reports for consideration. Please keep it clean. I will monitor the site as closely as possible to ensure all content is "G" rated. Your help will be appreciated.

The site is still under construction and has some empty spots and links that I am working on. My goal is to go back through my ride photos from the past few years and write some reports while the snow is flying this winter. And, I'm inviting readers to submit articles so that it is a well-rounded site. By springtime, I'm hoping to have a good selection of reports.

Please stop by and visit:

www.ridingwv.com

Thanks!

Very nice Mike. Look forward to visiting it often... and maybe suggesting a ride or three.

I would love to, but it would have to wait until after I've found another job. My pockets are bare, and my 20 year old truck is a massive gas guzzler.

What area do you live in, anyway?

Mee Mee'z Cafe and Cakes, 213 Henry Ave, Elkins, WV 26241 (N38.92330 W79.84692)

Small place with free wifi and a good breakfast. I concur with the Dispatch:

Most people didn’t understand why I wouldn’t want to eat breakfast at the Exxon but someone eventually told me about Mee Mee’z Cafe behind the Federal Building. Mee Mee’z is the kind of place that everyone sort of imagines the rest of the country is made of, where Real Americans eat Real Breakfasts before doing Real Work. Eggs and bacon vanish under bushy mustaches dripping with coffee while the morning’s gossip filters in from bored shopkeeps. Mee Mee sits in the middle like a kindly matriarch, icing her cakes and imparting folky wisdom.

Interesting looking! I'll try to add it soon - just got back from a 2-day ride (and grass-mowing) so I have lots to catch up on. Thanks!

Hi! What part of IL are you from? I was stationed at Scott AFB just east of St Louis from 2003-2008. If you look at my site, check out the Retirement Rides I and II (2005 and 2006) that I took from there back to WV.

Hope you submit some photos and/or ride reports when you get back. In the meantime, please feel free to contact me with any questions. I don't pretend to know everything about WV, but I can certainly try to find the answer for you if I don't know the answer.

Later!

I'm up in the NW corner. I flew out of Scott a couple of times going back to the PI on leave. USAF 1983-1988.
I'm sure i'll take planty of pictures.

Thanks for the offer.I just wish I had more time to explore. I'm probably going to have 4-5 days to explore.
