Saturday, July 29, 2017 – 8:00am to 4:00pm
Ride with the Legend gives bikers a chance to experience the beauty of the Virginia Creeper Trail, guided by ‘The Legend’ Lawrence Dye, an 85-year-old Trail Ambassador who has logged more than 192,000 miles of biking on the region’s finest rails-to-trails landmark.
Sponsored by the Virginia Creeper Trail Club, the ride will begin at the Abingdon Trailhead at 8 am on July 29 and proceed through Damascus to Whitetop Station and back. 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.
