Route Directions 

Here is an easy, introductory, out-and-back ride in the Canaan Valley area of West Virginia. The ride starts in the town of Davis at the Blackwater River bike shop (which also rents great bikes: www.blackwaterbikes.com). After a short, but technically tricky, singletrack section through a dense forest having a heavy dose of roots and boulders, one end culminates with a spectacular view from Lindy Point onto the Blackwater River Gorge. The other end of the ride offers a view of Canaan Valley (pronounced Ka-Neen) before returning on the flat Camp 70 dirt road. DIRECTIONS: Get to Davis, WV located on Highway 32 and park anywhere in town. It's about 3.5 hours from Washington, DC.
