Hey guys and gals,
A bunch of friends and myself are going to Damascus in June for a weekend of epic riding. We're looking to optimize use of singletrack even if some of it is climbing. We know hike a bikes and will do but want as much downhill and singletrack as possible. The plan is to leave vehicles at one of the bike shops in town and shuttle to Skull's Gap. We have a route similar in Pisgah that we shuttle that is 42 miles long and has about 10,000 ft of accumilated climbing. From there we want to do a 6-8 hr epic ride with at least 30 miles of trail/Service roads. I'm sending this out in hopes that my someone will comfirm my route will do or correct some of my thinking in length,time, and best way of riding it. Trail numbers are from the National Geographic Mount Rogers map.
