Going to try my first tour this spring. If you are interested in being one of the first to ride the Beaches to Bluegrass Trail, let me know. My wife would prefer a couple or a guy vs. just a lady rider.....appearances thing.
Trip goes from the Neptune statue at the board walk in Virginia Beach all the way to the other end of the state, ending at the Cumberland Gap. Take a look at the interactive map on this link to DCR website: http://www.dcr.virginia.gov/recreational-planning/trailb2b
I figure this to be an eleven day trip (650 miles). Trip will happen in two phases for me. First three days over Good Friday Weekend should take us from Board walk all the way to Clarksville. Will pick up the last week starting on May 7th and wind up on the 15th. This will put us in Damascus during Trail Days (AT super convention) as we peddle the Creeper Trail.
