On Saturday I finished riding the Virginia Capital Trail. I started in Charles City at the 20 mile marker and rode to the 0 mile marker in Jamestown and back.

It really is well kept. The state designed and built this trail in three sections and added historical markers, benches, with lots of much appreciated shade trees.
It follows a state hwy and has lots of access points to use along the way. There are also various gas stations, convenience stores, and cafes in case you get hungry, thirsty, or just want a chance to socialize with other riders.

Lawn ornaments, no actually right in town a few blocks from my house. I watched them graze for probably 10 minutes. Tried to make conversation but they weren't very talkative.

Yesterday I rode some of the trails at the James River State Park. There were some muddy areas from the recent rains but it was still a nice ride. The park is next to the James River with lots of trees and grassy fields. The river was so muddy that it looked like chocolate milk


'Stairway to Nowhere', lol.


Magical river of chocolate!


This is where they mix two different types of chocolate for the perfect blend!


Visitor's Center


Local pond.


Trailhead


Small wooden bridge.


I almost ran over this guy.


Very peaceful.

@jdt1217 really nice area you have to ride in! We have greenways down here but not like that! I have a friend who lives in Richmond, I need to go visit him!

Today my Volare took me all over town and to my favorite coffee stop, Port City Java. I saw a river of coffee, not chocolate jdt !. We are still getting introduced to each other. Only got the frame and built her like I wanted. She will be my winter, rain work bike.

My 13 year old


In case youíre wondering, there is coffee in the cup!
My son and I rode out to Wilson Park on the river here in Jacksonville. Great fishing from the gazebo at the end of the pier.

@3speedslow Central Virginia is a great place for riding bikes, both on and off road. Yesterday I went to Charlottesville and rode three different trails, two along the Rivanna River and one up to Monticello.


Trail up to Monticello.


Entrance to Monticello.


Rivanna River.


Awesome wooden bridge.


Dirt Trail.


Paved trail.

Ok, not going to to reply to single individuals, just to all of you......NICE PICTURES. Wow those trails to Jamestown, Central VA and the Neuse look great! I was just on the Neuse trail last weekend, but walking and exploring the Raleigh region.

Itís been so hot this summer, and doing a Beer & Taco ride has been tough. Though I finally planned a nice +40 ride today https://cyclemeter.com/2bb4c8e65ce6b...818-1023-99345 with the Surly Ogre, lots of stops: AC, sports drinks, beer, food and ice cream. Worked out really well, and since I havenít rode on Saturdays in a while, I noticed something I hadnít seeoon before and it gave me a nice surprise.







So awesome ! The best Taco stand in the area is now going to be right on my way home !
