    I would be interested in meeting you guys, but I just had a microdiscectomy between L5 and S1 two weeks ago. The bad news is I will be off my bike for the next couple of weeks until I fully recover. The good news is the sciatica pain down the back of both my legs is gone!!!!

    I rarely suffer sciatica but have been fighting back issue's for near 20 years off and on.
    I hope this is your fix.

    Okay I've been a little slow to post in here but am local (float between Spout Spring and Cloverdale), ride almost all the time(rode to work today for example) and am almost always riding by myself as none of the "Riders" I know ever seem to ride anywhere.
    Have both street (RC51 and S1000XR) and dual sport (WR250R) bikes and am willing to ride either on or off road.
    So if anyone in the area is up for a ride please chime in.
    Hope to meet up with some of you folks in the near future.

    Very good point. I'm usually texting folks I know to go ride. I should post here also. I'm about to be bikeless soon while I get some warranty work done and new tires, afterwards I've got a route planned with a bunch of exploring around where the Hellgate 100k course follows. Lots of gravel. Anyone interested in at least viewing the gpx?

    I don't yet know what of these have gates, what's restricted or any of that. Hence the "exploring".

    I am in for riding. The dirtier the better. I seem to have lost my DS mojo these days ever since i got the Husky out into the woods.

    Well after seeing goosecreek's post on the VA Tag-A-Rama thread suggesting a stop at Beale's in Bedford I did just that tonight on the bike. Sad thing is I go past Bedford on 460 at least twice a week and don't stop to see what's going on. So Beale's will be visited again. Soon.

    I foolishly considered making Wednesday night Central Virginia Solo bike night. Just had the best time out there riding today.
    If my schedule and perseverance allow (Crap weather not withstanding) it would be fun to do that. Did it for a while about 5 years ago at Neighbors. Solo bike night.
    Think I'll start it up again. I'll post time/place details going forward if anyone else wants to be a part of "Solo" bike night feel free to show up.

    Or possibly a Brews Cruise. Ride out to the different breweries in the area for samples. Emphasis on riding.

    Let us know when you're freed up.
    I travel for work a lot so come mid January I'll be gone for a bit.
    It'll happen soon enough.
