Creeper Trail Ride to Honor Lawrence the Legend
July 28 @ 8:00 am - 2:00 pm| Free
Saturday, July 28, 2018 – 8:00am to 2:00pm
The Creeper Trail Ride gives bikers a chance to experience the beauty of the Virginia Creeper Trail. Lawrence Dye, an 86-year-old Trail Ambassador, has logged more than 192,000 miles of biking on the region’s finest rails-to-trails landmark. Lawrence the Legend often rode daily to Whitetop Station and back to Abingdon.
Myrl Dunham will lead riders through Damascus to Whitetop Station and back, a 68-mile round trip. The pace will be moderate with plenty of breaks, and mileage can be shortened by joining or leaving the group at different locations along the trail. Participants should bring their own bikes (or rent one in Abingdon or Damascus) as well as weather-appropriate clothing, water, food and a tire-repair kit.
