I don’t believe I ever posted this photo on Tumblr before. This was my first mountain ride when I moved back to Virginia when I left Active Duty Navy in 2009.
Now how I ended up going on this ride well that was unplanned. Basically I had been all over google maps looking for roads in Goochland/Powhatan Counties in Virginia to ride. So I was making my way up SR 711 (Huguenot Trail) and as I came up upon the intersection of the 711 and 522, there was a BP gas station on my right. 2 guys with motorcycles at the pumps, they heard me coming down the road, and one guy just threw his arms up at me. So I went around and pulled into the BP and asked if they knew some good roads. Basically I was told we’ll that’s where we are going, and so it began for me, the at least 100 trips up to SR 56 along the part named “Crabtree Falls HWY” and many other roads in the western part of Virginia.
Note* Once time me and a buddy counted what we considered turns on google maps, and I think the 10 or 11 miles stretch of this road that goes through George Washington park I know we counted over 200 turns.
