The Cove questions?

Recommended Posts

I've read a fair amount on the Cove in Gore, Virginia.

I heard it's a great ride, but is it 2 days worth of riding.

According to what I've read it's only 20-30 miles of trail.

Out of this 20-30 miles what percentage would a newbie be able to ride.

We have planned a trip up there in a few weeks, and I just want to make sure that it's worth making it a 2-3 day trip.

Thanks. :cry:

it's a great place to ride, i was up there last week. i dont think that there is 2-3 days of riding, but we only ran 2 of the trails, the trails are rocky too, but i think if you know the trails you would have fun, i might go up there this weekend :cry:

If you mean newbie as in beginner trail rider, then you would want 2 days to explore at a reasonable pace. You would also want to ride with someone. Most of the trails are intermediate difficulty and above. Lots of technical rock climbs and single track descents.

Thanks for the information.

I think we are going to make a pass this time, and ride some awesome fire roads in the area.

Yeah, I'd be interested in that, too! I've only gotten one ride in so far and I'm dying to get out and ride more!

Get your bike back together, and make the trip.

This is not an option. :cry:

When we firm up everything I'll post the plans.

Bikes must be tagged to ride the area I'm told.

Tagged? As in a license plate? I'm pretty sure it just needs a spark arrestor unless they haven't updated their website.

I was referring to the area we road last weekend.

The decision was made to pass on the cove, and play on fire roads, and trails.

Last weekend we did 170 miles, and rarely came across the same road twice.

Oh oops, sorry. :cry: I misunderstood;I was thinking there were fireroads at the Cove that you had ridden.

Oh wait, do you still have to have a tag for fireroads? :cry:
