    You guys will go down in history for this! Simply awesome. Thanks for the pics and video.

    The cat's out of the bag now:

    The Virginia Mountain Bike Trail — 480 Miles Along the Appalachians | Virginia Bicycling Federation

    I'll put a link to this thread too.

    In an email last night, Chris said the maps and GPS stuff were being worked on. He's presenting about it today at our Virginia bike summit in Louisa. I'm really sorry not to be there.

    Everyone help spread the word -- Facebook, G+, Twitter, forums, email, whatever. Send the links to SMT, Drunk Cyclist, or whoever else deserves the traffic. Our site is does fine -- we love to share the love.

    Now I miss Virginia even more!

    very nice. any plans to go north of rt55 along the state line? I think the big-blue (patc) trail does go north for a bit along the ridge, not sure if it goes all the way to rt50. great effort and results.

    Great trip. Love the photos. Toy film cameras have their good points.

    I've biked part of the VA creeper trail, and have hiked part of the Iron Mtn Trail near Damascus. That is my favorite destination. Stringing all these trails together is really cool.

    Inspiring!

    Camping nightly. We had support from Shenandoah Mountain Touring whose owner Chris Scott, organized this inaugural adventure. It is doable self supported but there is a long stretch coming out of Big Schloss on the north end.

    Nice trip and photos thanks for sharing. In the first set the 6th pic up from bottom made me think you put a private photo in here by accident.
