VA meetup idea

I see that there is some interest in the WMA riders doing a meet-up ride. I was thinking of an over-nighter in the future, but for the first meet-up, it would be a great idea to at least ride somewhere a few hours away, have lunch, hang out, and see what ideas we can come up with "off forum".


I'm going to throw out the first proposal. I think the consensus is something only a few hours away - probably westerly. I have two ideas:


  1. "Sal's Italian Bistro" in Edinburg, VA. I've eaten there several times and the food is amazing. It's in a small town with one street and good parking. It offers a mix of highway and country road options perfect for the Bobbers.
  2. Tara's in Berkeley Springs, WV. Also a small town in the WV mountains, offers many routing options. Has local craft brews and a full bar. The food there is also fantastic.
Either option we can pick any weekend and make it a day of hanging out.

Those are both probably a bit too far west for me. I am just outside DC on the northeastern edge -- takes me an hour just to get around/through the city to Arlington! But if you all end up choosing one, we'll see, I may make it out.

We could bring it a bit south-west to Culpepper, VA. Plenty of good eats there, and nice riding roads.

I'll join for the ride and eats. I live west and between Winchester and Martinsburg on the mountain.

I like a good ride now and then, but don't know if I can commit to most of a day out and back these days. Would be up for meeting up somewhere after rush hour during the week.

I'm down with something, but prefer the east side of the mountain.

There is the Griffin Tavern in Flint Hill.

Headmasters Pub in Sperryville. Actually Sperryville has a few options and with a nice market. They have a place that does great brick/wood fire pizza. Couple breweries.

I think by in large the ride out for a meet and greet would prob the the majority of the ride this time as we all come from some distance.

Okay - I'm a sucker for a good pub and this one fits the bill. Let's agree to meet at Headmasters Pub in Sperryville. That should prove to be a good ride out for everyone in the area, and will let me get some back roads riding in on the way.



Now we need a date. How is this weekend, June 1?

I could swing something out that way on Saturday. Looks like we're going to have some good weather. What time?

Sadly, I have business travel out to Texas of which I am leaving for on Saturday, and the following weekend is already booked. Post some pics and count me in for the next one.

Count me in. I suggest we meet at 1 pm. It seems to be a 70-mile ride for me, back roads mostly.
