Loudon county has more miles of unimproved roads (gravel/dirt) than any other county in Virginia! Such a shame to rule it out...
Well the first tag was on a gravel road. Seemed to work fine.

Yea, state maintained gravel roads should be in play. No private roads. Everyone agree?

Pretty sure that is because everyones versions of a "dirt road" is different.



To many this is a dirt road.

A dirt (coal trail) road took me here a couple of weeks ago:


State gravel roads in NOVA are fair game.

Dirt road is open to interpretation, as long as it is legal and maintained somewhat, the road is in-play. Just use your best judgment.

Gravel Roads

As a relatively new rider and one with only about 20 minutes experience on gravel, I humbly request that if your tag requires riding on a gravel road, you say so in your post.

Private roads are on different colored signs than public or VDOT maintained roads. Around the valley, most public roads are on a green sign with white reflective lettering while private roads are on a white/silver sign with green lettering. Not sure your local schemes but this helps keep the game out of private streets and away from angry dogs/owners (not such a problem for you northerners)

You do not have to stray far from the road (I am parked on it in the picture) and nearly got hit by a car as I took it).

***Note the Beaverdam Resevoir map on the tank bag....Bruced!

Just in case you can't make out the letters.


Ah hem, you have to get this one first....Nice day today.....

This game works much better when people go after the tags. There are plenty of riders in NOVA and this is an easy tag...
Your wife will understand and you will appreciate the time on your bike.

LOL, Been riding about 3 weeks, so I am trying to keep the rides away from 495/95 traffic. And anyone can grab tags, just no tags in BFE!
