Tyler Benedict came to Virginia's Blue Ridge as part of BikeRumor's "Where to Ride" series, which provides a resource of safe and socially-distanced mountain biking destinations to check out during the pandemic.
"Where to Ride: Endless mountain biking in Virginia's Blue Ridge starts in Roanoke" is a great resource for planning a trip on two wheels through Virginia's Blue Ridge.
The following is a quote from Tyler's article:
"Sitting smack dab in the middle of the East Coast, just far enough into the Blue Ridge Mountains, Roanoke, Virginia centers a hub of next level mountain bike trails. In fact, it boasts an amazing set of singletrack right inside its own downtown! But it's the proximity to several road trip-worthy trails, family-friendly outdoor activities, and massive array of amazing restaurants that makes this area worth a multi-day visit."
The article and accompanying video highlights local mountain bike trails as well as restaurant and brewery recommendations, gear shops, outfitters and outdoor adventures beyond mountain biking like Explore Park's Treetop Quest, tubing at Waid Park and exploring downtown Roanoke.
