Roanoke in Virginia's Blue Ridge is one of the Top 6 Secret Mountain Bike Destinations in the US, according to a recent article by Bicycling - one of the premier biking publications in the world.

The story was written by Robert Annis, who was assisted by the Visit VBR Public Relations Department with information and images showcasing the region.

With its recent designation as an IMBA Silver-Level Ride Center, Virginia's Blue Ridge is establishing itself as America's East Coast Mountain Biking Capital and getting featured by major outlets like Bicycling.

The region boasts over 320 miles of trails that feature a variety of riding experiences, from challenging rocky terrain to winding singletrack. There is also a great selection of amenities for bikers looking for post-ride activities, such as great breweries and live music.

Here is an excerpt from the article:

"Mountain bikers should head to Roanoke as soon as possible, because with 320 miles of trails (and even more planned) within 45 minutes of its downtown, Virginia’s Blue Ridge won’t stay under the radar much longer.

Located within heart of the city, Mill Mountain Park’s 13 miles of singletrack is a great introduction to the trails and ideal for prepping your legs for several days of epic riding."
