Hi from Va Beach
Hi all. Been a recreational rider for awhile. Enjoy riding my MTB and my recumbent on the various paths and trails in the area. Planning on doing some touring in the near future, C&O, W&OD and Little Maimi Trail in OH. Hope to do a ride up from FL sometime in the not to distant future.
My girlfriend is actually from VA Beach and we visit her family there a few times a year. Nice city. Are there a lot of MTB trails there? I think I remember seeing one off of Shore Dr., but I can't remember.
Welcome to the forums!!!
There aren't any real trails in VA Beach.
SeaShore is not really a "bike trail" it's more of a get outside and ride at walking pace.
It's sort of scenic being on the beach......I don't ride there after a little girl swerved about 10' and ran right into me, by no means was this my fault, I was riding extremely slow & cautiously, but I still was the "monster on a mountain bike!" to the parents.
Years ago I rode a trail near Damneck, It was at least dirt, not really worth finding unless you live there.
Here are few good trails nearby....
Newport News: Harwood Mills - on Old Denbiegh Blvd
Behind RiverSide Hospital across from Mariners Museum has some trails that are re-opened after being restricted for many years.
Williamsburg: Waller Mill “dogwood trail” - take the camp perry exit
There are several trails near the college
York River State Park have a few trails that are very good!
My wife's favorite bike ride was along to board walk to one of the hotels where we would stop for a pancake breakfast. Welcome
