The Big Ride – Sweet mountain byways! (West Virginia)

I have to say that it’s been two days of sweet mountain riding!  The roads have been exceptional.  Yesterday (Monday May 18, 2015) was a rain free day despite having been chased by a number of ominous rain clouds through the mountains heading from Elkins, WV, to Summersville, WV on Route 219.

I have to say, Route 219 is one of the nicest highways out there.  It’s one beautiful curve after another and I’m loving it!  If you are planning a trip down this way you might want to build it into your route.  And remember, when the signs say 20 miles per hour…yup best to get into first gear because there are some very tight curves on this route and they just might sneak up on you.

Here’s a few shots from yesterday:

And here is a short video clip of yesterday’s ride….enjoy!

And here is a little clip from today’s ride (Tuesday, May 19, 2015) from Summersville to Charleston, WV.  The camera is in a new position and offers a very interesting view – hope you like it 🙂
