Carvin's Cove and upcoming race

Made a trip down to Carvin's Cove today.

The cove is a wonderful place to ride. It has an incredible variety of terrain that ranges from flat gravel road to smooth flowing single track to technical VA rooty, rocky and loose downhills. The flow of the trails is incredibly well done.

The parking lot was full and it was great to see people enthused about mountain biking. There is some great developmental terrain out there that can get people exciting about mountain biking without killing their spirit or body.

Next week is a sweet sweet race with a hillclimb Saturday and XC at the cove on Sunday. Wife is out of town so I might not be able to make it, but this is a jewel of a course put on by some great volunteers. The course has everything in it. Fire road climbing technical descending, and just incredible single track.

Always a nice treat to go down there, and kudos to the crew down there for turning the Cove into a destination riding spot. They have all the ingredients to grow mountain biking out there and it's great to see the energy.
