KL Group Ride, VA, AUG 15!

NOVA!

I’m putting together a little group ride at Flagpole Knob Trail, VA on Saturday, August 22nd. A friend of mine (rides a REALLY nice mod'd 4Runner) offered to lead a group, if you don’t mind following a Toyota! He knows his stuff.

We are going to meet at the Sheetz in Harrisonburg (798 E Market St, Harrisonburg, VA 22801) at 1000 on Saturday. This should get us up to the top of Flagpole by 1300.

I hear the trail isn't all that technical, but reports from the Mid-Atlantic Overland Society state the trail is worn in a few areas which makes it difficult to traverse. Not being in a Trailhawk is your call.

No CB's required, but modest recovery equipment is recommended (straps, air pump, etc).

He advises: “Brush was fairly over grown last time I was there so pinstriping is a very real possibility so those anal about their paint jobs should be warned.”

If you are in the area, you are welcome to join. Pass the word to others as well.

Paved road up to Flag Pole Knob nothing special, however if you want some excitement try traversing Dunkle Hollow but I wouldn't go alone on that FS road even on my dual sport KTM motorcycle.

So, toss her in the pool at my apartment complex, and we'll go riding. Or, bring her along. My girlfriend will probably appreciate the company.

She'd rather be on a boat out on the Potomac, but I'll pass it by her and see what she says. If other gf's/wives are going, then she may be more inclined to tag along, too.

They can talk about cats, and nail polish, and wine. You know. Girl things.
