Got a few guys from another forum going on a ride down skyline this sunday. We're meeting at the parking lot of Joann Fabrics off of Rt.28 in Centreville, va.
at 9:30. Route hasn't been determined but we generally take backroads to hit 211, then grab lunch at the brookside diner and then head north back up skyline.
All bikes are welcome and we don't ride crazy like. I'm heading down from here in sykesville, md. so if anyone is interested up near here and wants to tag along to get there, let me know.

Hmmm - I might be over that way on Sunday, what time do you think you'll be at Brookside?

Just a FYI, The speed limit on Rt 211 was recently lowered to 35 mph on the stretch from Sperryville to the other side of the mountain. Law enforcement has been increased also - seems a bunch of people were calling this the "Dragon" of Virginia, and there were several accidents...

Also, they are a bunch of places on the Skyline under construction - no road closures, but some rough/gravel sections.

Let me know on the time - if I can make it, I'll be there.

Ride safe,
Bob S.

Bob,
I'm not sure at the moment when we'll be down at the brookside or if we're going to hit that 2nd, 1st, or at all. Kinda depends on whether the group wants to hit the apple house instead, http://www.theapplehouse.net/

Here's where we're meeting in Centreville, va. if you wanna meet there instead.

Also, sent a pm with my number.. I have a scala, so if you call I should be able to answer unless we're somewhere that I don't get reception at the time of the call. Most of the time I've been down there..everything works.

Hope to meet ya.

Joe:

We'll miss you by two days, Gburghick and I are heading down the Skyline Drive/Blue Ridge Parkway on Friday morning on our way to the Sport-Touring.Net National Meet in Eureka Springs, AR, via VA/NC/SC/GA/NC/TN/GA/TN/AL/MS/AR. Then do a AR/MO/KS/OK/AR ride while there. We'll head home on the 12th, via AR/MO/IL/KY/WV/PA/WV/MD/PA, we will be back on the 16th. I will try to set up a ride in southcentral PA when we return. Have a good ride. Catch you later.

Jeff

Looks like I'm out - SWMBO set up a back yard thing with some friends coming over. Looks like if I want some riding time this weekend it will be tomorrow (after I cut the weeds).

Have fun,
Bob S.

Larry, Hope you can weasle your way out of those. Not sure if what we'll be doin' that weekend yet. But will be sure to post the next rides we do. Typically try to get a few together each month though with the va. crew from the other forums, so those will be posted here.

Bob..sorry to hear we'll be missin' ya...there's always next time and as stated, there will be more times.

Sounds good - I always like to hook up with folks for a fun ride.

I'm a pyrotechnician, so the 4th of July is never good for me. But if you want to ride down to Charlottesville VA., I can promise you a great fireworks show! :D

Ride safe,
Bob S.
