We are headed to WV on our Wees next week, just riding around and enjoying the twisty roads. We've passed thru before but haven't had the opportunity to spend any time in the past. I know of lots of good roads, plus I've been on motorcycleroads.com but was wondering if anyone could reccomend some reasonable accomodations. I'm thinking of something a little off the beaten path like cabins or Mom and Pop motels. Don't require anything fancy just clean and a good bed. We are open to spending several nights in one place and using it has a home base or just moving around every night or some combination of both.

If the weather turns bad, we'll nip into DC to visit Mr. Footlooses brother and I'll be picking up hiking trail maps and info for future trips backbacking the area. Really want to backpack the Dolly Sods area sometime!

Any info on roads, accomodations or restaurants will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I just rode thru WV, twice.

First route was Rt. 47 from Parkersburg to Seneca Rock, then Rt. 33 to Harrisonburg Va.

Coming home I took Rt. 10 all the way thru the state...Princeton to Huntington.

Both are great roads!!!
You will get your share of curves and mountains with both routes!!!

Thanks BTD. We've driven through Seneca Rocks on that route before (in the truck) but we'll be back again this trip. I've since got some good restaurant reccomendations in that area from climber/hiker friends too.

So, I guess you didn't go west with your time off? And after I planned out your whole route through Colorado too!:p:) Oh well....next time.

I have a job interview tomorrow. If I manage to snag this job, I'd love to try and get some time off between jobs and head west on the bike. I haven't had a job where I could get more than 5 or 6 days off in a row in too many years.

WV Ride

There are some cabins that I pass just south of Smoke Hole Caverns on Hwy 28 that look pretty neat.

If you used that as a base/start, you could continue north on Hwy 28 and just as you approach Petersburg turn left (N) onto Hwy 42. Go to Mt Storm and turn left on US Hwy 50, then south on Hwy 90 which will intersect US 219
this will take you to Thomas, then Davis (former start point of the Blackwater 100).

Take Hwy 32 south until it intersects US 33 and go east back to Seneca Rocks and Hwy 28 (just south of the start point).

Hope this has been of some value.

Thanks
Gary

I've been all over The Mountain State - in fact, I'll be there in the next few wks.:mrgreen: I'm sure you'll have no problems finding roads to keep you entertained, regardless of your preferrences. As for your unique accomodation request, I'll suggest: THIS
