My buddy & I are near the top of a Paint Creek tributary when we decide to ride an abandoned rail bed that has been stripped of ties & rails. This isn't marked as a "Rails to Trails" hike/bikeway which we have here in WV so there was no concern for public safety. After the line ends in impassable sapplings & vines he heads back up the nearby pavement while I have a little fun blasting solo. There is an amazing rock cut in the beginning I ride through, and to think it was all done by hand. You can see the WV Turnpike at one point & John riding on the road above me at another which spurs me on to get there first! The 2nd bridge is missing some decking timbers but that just makes it more exciting, right?
Can't wait to spoon some fresh tires on & try again with the Scotts damper turned up a few clicks
