More Information

(18+, 14+ with adult) Carvins Cove, for many of us living in Roanoke, is our weekend getaway adventure or our post work playground, but have you ever wondered what was there before you were shredding down the Gauntlet? Or have you wondered how the trails got their name? Carvins Cove’s history can be found online or in books, but why do that when you can join us on your mountain bike and travel through time! During this tour of Carvins Cove, we will discover its past, its present, and its possibilities. This tour will be easy going and there will be lots of stops to share historic events of the Cove. Participants should be comfortable on beginner single track trails but expect intermediate sections, and comfortable riding ten miles. Participants must have their own mountain bike that is capable of such terrain and a helmet.

Cost: $25
