The place of worship this road is near, and likely references, starts with a "W" but this road doesn't. The road that runs along the front of said place of worship starts with a "W" and is the name of that place of worship.
This road T's directly in front of said place and is near a fork that goes west over a mountain that starts with "F".

OK. If you go toward Boonesville from where you lived when we first met, it will be a left before you get to Catterton Rd. Tag is about 0.7 miles on the right.
Also, according to the Atlas and Gazeteer, the tag road is the same # as the road over F _ _ Mountain.

I was planning on taking the dingus a little farther away, but I ended up on this great little road not to far away. It's probably been tagged before, but just in case, I figured I couldn't let this gem get away without tagging it.

The TAG spot.



Dingus is at the base of this post, which is to the right of my bike in the above picture.



CLUE:

Road name is synonymous with a geological feature consisting of a chain of mountains or hills that form a continuous elevated crest for some distance.

Nice day for tag grabbing. That farm where you placed the tag is or was recently for sale for big $$$. Pretty road but watch out for joggers.

Yep. Great road. Lot's of great trails around there. Unfortunately only accessible by hoof.

You're all correct. Came across 2 joggers.......one of which was wowy! and an elderly couple out for a Sunday walk. Then I was just flabbergasted by the houses along that road, and in the surrounding area. I kept hoping I'd run into a damsel in distress so as to possibly ingratiate myself with an affluent family! No such luck, but I did get rewarded with a beautiful day to enjoy and much need ride out on the bike.

Damnit! Bruced.

I was checking this thread all day. Off work at three o'clock and hightailed it out here. I figured I was Bruced when I saw the clear signs of motorcycle traffic on the loose gravel of Ridge rd. It's only fair, I bruced HPYFNGY here a while back.

Can't seem to upload pics using tapatalk at the moment.

Can't wait around for new tag. Gotta get home.

I checked a few times today thinking someone might beat us there. Such a great day to ride. Well here's a new tag for you then, and not terribly far for you fatnbld

If you take the road heading north past the Charlottesville airport it continues up past Chris green lake (don't turn there) just keep going as it turns to gravel and over 2 bridges. New tag is at the end of the second bridge. New dingus is waving to you, so should be easy to spot. Hopefully no one walking the road steals him so someone better get out there soon.



He is hanging off this sign? You can just barely see his toe on this side.



And here are the bikes and bridge.




Go get him!
