Hey there! I posted a while back about maybe getting the route files from you if you were willing to share them with me, but didn't get a response. I figured I'd try one last time. Thanks for your consideration.

Spring Break Ride Update

This time of year we always take a multi-day ride since my son is on spring break. We were hoping to ride some of the Blue Ridge Trail after we read an earlier ride report. Error cooled graciously shared his files so we planned our trip. We couldnt get the logistics in place, nor did we have time, to ride the entire trail so we looked for a route that would allow us to start and end at the same location and would give us 3 days of riding.

We (ages 18 to 70), and our bikes (200cc to 800cc) met in Lexington and started our ride. We were not sure what to expect since 3-days earlier they got 7-inches of snow in the area we were heading to. Day 1 took us from Lexingon to Covington, Day 2 was Covington to Buchanan, and Day 3 was Buchanan back to Lexington. The ride and scenery was fantastic. We ran across snow here and there but only once did we have to turn around. The snow turned to ice and there was no getting up the mountain, especially for the bikes with dual sport tires. A simple reroute kept us going.

We stayed in hotels and ate out each night and the riding was great. I know how much work it was to put this ride together even after Error Cooled gave us the tracks so I know how much effort he put into the Blue Ridge Trail.

Thanks much, we really appreaciate it.

Thanks!

Many thanks for the files. I was part of 3-day group ride led by Ridewhat (see yesterday's post). Awesome scenery, great camaraderie. Will be doing more of these routes.

Wooooo hooooo! Got the files! Thanks for all your hard work putting this together. I plan on doing at least a good chunk of this ride sometime this summer and will absolutely report in here on my experience with lots of videos and pictures!

Keep up the great work and thank you for your invaluable contributions to this wonderful community!
