Next Summer's Adventure: West Virginia

I must miss riding all day in the dirt and then sleeping in a smelly tent, because I'm beginning the planning stages of another long dual-sport ride. It's not quite on the scale of the TAT, but it should still be a lot of fun, and mostly on terrain that I know and love (I haven't started to miss deep sand yet). The route is a nearly 1000 mile loop made from portions of the TWVT (Trans-West Virginia Trail), portions of a missed ride a local rider put together last year(thanks again Garry), and some connections I made up using

I may have a few local riding buddies along with me for this one, which will be cool. I'll be posting more updates here as this thing progresses.

I'm also hoping to spend a few days checking out the Hatfield-McCoy trail system in WV in a separate trip.


  1. Tavis,
    Do you have a GPX file that i can load on my Garmin for this route ?

    1. Hi ridetillucant, out of respect for the wishes of the creators of the TWVT route, I'm not going to distribute my track files. You can get most of them from here though:

      Hope that helps!
