Shenandoah Valley, VA

As a lifelong equestrian, I've just discovered mtn biking this year. A friend challenged me to get off the horse and give the bike a try. WOW! I was hooked almost immediately! Now I divide my time between the two, but it sure is easy to throw that bike in the truck and head to the mountains (rather than brushing, tacking and loading the horses!)

I live about 2 miles from the GW National Forest. Many, many wonderful trails and forest roads. I have a wonderful friend and bike mentor who is teaching me the arts of staying on the bike, keeping it on the trail and avoiding trees (so far, I've only hit one!)

Many thanks to all you experienced riders who've taken time to post here. I've learned so much.

Happy trails,
shenvalleyrider

We visited the SV several years back - it was beautiful. The folks we visited had a lot of property, and frequently hunted deer, etc., in the GWNF, which bordered their property.

Welcome.

I go through the GWNF on business now and then, and I always wish I could bring my bike. One of these days I will. What a great riding (bike and horse) resource.
