I hope Chris Tompkins can clear some questions I have on the October ride. Is this going clockwise or counterclockwise around the loop? Are Tandems ok? I was hoping to do this on our Tandem.
Please add (to the calendar) the inaugural Allegheney Mountains Loop . The first-ever "group" ITT leaving from the Virginia Tech campus at 8:00am on Friday October 5th 2012. This TD-like route will feature 400 miles of gravel, rail-trail and some pavement with more than 25,000 feet of climbing. And as an added bonus... it's during "peak" fall foliage along the Virginia/West Virginia border.
Let's celebrate another great ACA "fat tire" route and make the "AML" a challenge that can be a stepping stone for Tour Divide-aspiring, east-coast bikepackers.
Toe(ing) the line ...
