2016 SHARK WEEK PROPOSAL - Make it WV!

Check out this ride from Beckley to Petersburg WV. Nice review.

"Believe it or not, the Governor of the State of West Virginia recommended this route!"

West Virginia is a hidden gem for bike riders. I go there often, and always enjoy the ride, scenery, and people. I would try to make this if it is there.

I googled "who gives an eff," my name was not listed

What dates are you considering? Maybe right before or after rolling thunder?

We are still in debate about the dates. I am double checking to make sure that we don't cross with any annual events that are already scheduled. But, we are thinking maybe mid to late June

That would be a pretty good idea since it's in the general vicinity. But I must admit that I'm still favoring Canada.

+1 Rolling Thunder ain't going nowhere and neither is West Virginia.....besides if the Canucks do it in August both are way doable! If they did it this year to coincide with Rolling Thunder SW would have been in May.

People keep mentioning Canada, is there a definite proposal coming from Calgary Glide or others at SW5? What part of Canada - it's a big country?

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming Wow! What a Ride! - HST
