Drop down a few lines and post up on the Cat herders or the BWDR threads lots of good people close to you. What are you looking for easy gravel roads or single track? AB:-)

Like AB said, check out the Cat Herders & BWDR threads.

There is also a Charlottesville thread and a couple of Lynchburg threads. Inmates are always posting rides. Check out the Richmond thread too. A lot of those FFs get out that way.

There are a couple of Tag-O-Rama games in your area. The T-O-R games are a good way to get to know more ADVers.

Come to a campout. Spring Laurel Fork is a good place to meet a lot of area riders.

You just need to look around the Southeast forum to find lots of stuff going on close to you.

Thanks for the suggestions!

Appreciate the suggestions, gents! I will check into them and, surely, be riding in no time. BTW, in answer to the question about gravel, singletrack, etc. I am a lifelong road rider but haven't been on a "off-road" bike since I was a kid. I mountain bike a fair amount, so I think I may make the transition back to off-road pretty easily. Either way, I'm looking for any kind of adventure, as well as some moto-camaraderie.

Thanks again for the responses!

Not sure if anyone keeps up with firearm industry news, but Remington Arms is opening a facility in Huntsville, AL. I am one of the lucky employees that has an opportunity to pack up everything and move down there.

I was wondering if you guys could fill me in on how much dirt/gravel riding there is within a half hour to an hour out of town?

New to VA

All,

I just moved to VA, Fredericksburg area. Is there anywhere to ride at all in VA, anything close to Fburg? I have a plated KTM 450 XC-W and need some good single track, or at least some dual sport trails to fast burn on. Any information that you all can share would be appreciated!!

Question Central VA Dual-sport Riding

Hey Riggy, I'm a little south of Charlottesville, VA and have been looking for someone to ride with. I'm a lifelong motorcyclist, but relatively new getting back to off-road riding. I have a KLR650 that I intend to do a section of the TAT on this summer. Anyway, I know that we're not real close, but thought there might be a meeting place in the middle. What do you think?
