It only looks like it in certain places - like inside the new Trader Joe's. We're definitely heading in that DC direction I'm afraid.
As far as riding - I like FR39,315,311,38, etc. near the Lynchburg reservoir. 607 takes you over the mountain past the high school in Buena Vista and into town. North of there, north of 60 on the BRP is FR76 on the right, takes you down to 606. Take that up to 633 which turns into FR63, great road. Look for the Heron that lives along the creek - I've had him fly up and fly next to me for 1/2 mile or so twice. FR48 takes off FR63 where the Appalachian Trail crosses, goes back toward Oronoco.
Go ride west and south of Lexington, many good roads and great views.
And don't tell bwalsh - he doesn't think us C'ville riders range that far
