I got out of the sack Saturday morning and was on it at 7:30.
Jonas Ridge. Hey what happened to mostly sunny??
The downside of Holston Mountain on US 421.
So, it wasn't all as good as that. The Cranberry Festival was ramping up in Shady Valley. Besides legit rain, the traffic was bumper to bumper out of Mountain City. The brass was phasing tunes I couldn't place.
I got to Bristol a tad behind schedule. We were on it by 11. Warning: if you are offended by the backside of Kyle B's bike, you should hit the back button on your browser.
Looking west from Sunny Point, VA.
Looking south from Chestnut Ridge back at Sunny Point. That's a big hole on the far left of the photo.
Chestnut Ridge Road brings you down to the Clinch River, where you "can cross" at Burton Ford. The bad news is you have to double back. The good news is that you can make a loop out of it and ride more of VA 65.
Really, all I wanted to do was get to Coeburn.
