WARNING! WARNING! WARNING!
All FLATLANDERS, NEW RIDERS,
and those RECENTLY RETURNED TO RIDING
and are planning on attending the New River Gorge Run this July please, please, please practice slow speed descending right and left turns over and over until you are ABSOLUTELY
proficient with them.
The single arch New River Bridge (largest in the world) that carries US-19 across the gorge and hovers over 800 ft above the New River is the main attraction in the area.
But you can't get this view of the bridge unless you descend the gorge and cross the New River on this bridge.
But the descent involves several of these, both left and right. Take note there is not a single patch of level ground anywhere in this picture including where the bike is parked.
The first two turns are from a stop sign and are descending 180 degree right hand turns. If you mess up the first one you get to try again on the second one
However much practice it takes the ride will be worth it as views of waterfalls cascading down the gorge and water level views of the New River are to be had for the accomplished adventurer. Besides this is the ride on the way to dinner!
Arrangements are being made and if they prove successful the sponsored dinner will be held at the Glen Ferris Inn, an establishment founded in 1836 and located directly on the banks of the Kanawha River.
View from the Glenn Ferris Inn.
So start practicing and get registered this gathering should be a great deal of fun for all!
