    Sherando Lake is down off of the parkway five miles or so, and it's a pretty steep climb back up either by Reeds Gap or Love Road. I met a girl who was doing the Trans Am a few weeks ago

    54 miles, 4K of climbing on a beautiful route that is part of the Trans Am Rt 76 through Virginia. Saw one or two traveling bike tourists near Natural Bridge.

    Just remember that to "push" on to Peaks of Otter you have to do a 3200 foot climb from the James River up to Thunder Ridge first. But it is mostly a gradual downhill from where Rt 60 crosses the...

    I've never taken the road bike on out and out mountain bike single-track stuff, but I've ridden plenty of gravel and unpaved stuff on it. As long as the gravel isn't real loose, it works fine.
