Day 1 of 3 ~ Southern Va

At the moment of the spur – based on weather forecast – beautiful weather for the next 3 days so off we go – Sean and myself – Wednesday, July 18, 2018. A dream to bike the “Back of the Dragon” the second famous route of the east coast boasting so many turns/curves within a short distance! It is the Appalachian range itself – beautiful!

Off we go……

A quick lunch stop at Ed’s Grill

Getting stuck off hwy 81 as we near our hotel for the night

still waiting

Called for police to help us – 

and a jump start – started Sean’s bike n off we go the remaining 30 minutes

A great day one biking except being stuck by the highway shoulder only 30 minutes from our hotel. Waiting for towing co to bring gas to Sean. As it get darker. Getting dangerous so called for police for safety reason. Finally towing co brought Sean some gas and jump start his bike. Off we went to hotel! A 350 mike full day of riding. Really lovely ride!
