For two weeks, you and your fellow riders will bike across southwest Virginia on your way to the New River Gorge in West Virginia. Your trip will begin at our Base Camp where you will be outfitted with your gear, mountain bike, and a tow-behind trailer. After a day of team building and introductory bike maintenance, your group will pack up their trailers and bike off of our Base Camp. Each day will be spent gaining mileage between destinations and enjoying the thrill and adrenaline rush of single-track riding without trailers in tow. As your route winds its way through the majestic mountainside you will take periodic breaks where you will have the opportunity to hone your rock climbing skills and knowledge. From anchor set ups for climbing to proper belay technique you will walk away a more confident rock climber.

Eventually you will arrive at the spectacular New River Gorge deep in West Virginia. It is here that you will spend your final days participating in what the New River Gorge is famous for: rock climbing and white-water rafting. A few days of technical climbing on shear granite walls followed by a heart pounding rafting trip down the Class III-IV rapids of the New River. Join us in this adventure and perfect your rock climbing and mountain biking techniques while enjoying the camaraderie of your fellow riders. This trip is geared toward more experienced riders. Novices should call ahead to discuss whether their skill level is appropriate.
