Snowshoe (West Virginia)

During our final trip to Snowshoe for the season we discovered that the lower road gap, which had been closed for several years, had been rebuilt. After a couple of test runs to gauge approach speed, I launched myself off the lip. Definitely a nice way to cap off another fun season.

False Cape State Park (Virginia Beach, VA)

To celebrate his 30th birthday, our friend Christian organized a camping trip to False Cape State Park, just above the North Carolina border.

There were several groups joining the trip at different times, beginning as early as Friday morning and trailing in as late as we did on Saturday afternoon.

The ride in to our campsite was around 6 miles. It was the first time I'd carried a fully-loaded hiking backpack on my bike and my butt was feeling the extra weight on the saddle!

The clouds were out during our stay, but it was actually kind of nice not being baked by the sun and still plenty warm to enjoy the water.
