Biking Bent Mountain

I like what these guys have going on. Pedal up, blaze down.

Unlike many slender and pretty mountain roads in Western Virginia, U.S. 221 down Bent Mountain is wide and ugly. It plunges down the mountain with muscular, dramatic switchbacks beneath immense walls of jagged rock. In that way, it’s more like mountain passes through Montana’s Rockies or Washington State’s Cascade range. Almost all the way down there’s an unobstructed northward view into the Roanoke Valley – if you dare to take your eyes off the road.

They even have a video for your viewing enjoyment: roanoke.com

About big jonny

The man, the legend. The guy who started it all back in the Year of Our Lord Beer, 2000, with a couple of pages worth of idiotic ranting hardcoded on some random porn site that would host anything you uploaded, a book called HTML for Dummies (which was completely appropriate), a bad attitude (which hasn’t much changed), and a Dell desktop running Win95 with 64 mgs of ram and a six gig hard drive. Those were the days. Then he went to law school. Go figure. Flagstaff, Arizona, USA
