I'm in Manassas again and have a few days off this coming week, Sun., Mon., Tues. and part of Wed. Thinking about heading south aways for some warmer riding. Maybe Richmond or even further. Any suggestions... technical trails I shouldn't miss? I could drive to a different trail in a different place every day.

Hop, skip, and jump.

You are very close to very good riding already. If I were you I'd stop by Harrisonburg VA. Tons of good stuff, rarely ridden. Asheville is going to be snowy and wet this weekend, so I'd wait for better weather. Go to www.shenandoahbicycle.com for information and links. If you stop by the shop they will show you all you need to know. Words!

I am going to be in Harrisonburg tomorrow, Sunday only. Can someone give me directions to a trail head I like technical rocky trails and don't mind climbing. Six pack downhill looks interesting. All I can find for directions is that it is off 33.
