After 4 years of sitting in the shed next to some hot tub chemicals (hint: PH Down rusts metal FAST) our bicycles are back in service. We found most of our old gear (helmets, gloves, tools, etc) except for a couple of water bottles and our trip computers. I’m pretty excited to get back on the bike a few times a week. It’s great exercise, but mostly it’s just fun.
Chrissy dug up a few links for finding places to ride like www.bikely.com, Trails.mtbr.com, and evma.org but they all frustrated me. I think we’ll be starting off around the house, and maybe we’ll head over to Brown’s Island.
I think we’ll both need a minute to get used to clipless pedals again.
If anyone knows of some good trails in RVA let me know.
