DH and I spent part of the week before the retreat riding the Virginia Creeper and New River trails in VA. What a beautiful place to ride bikes. My daughter gave me a camera mount for my bike and I took some pictures along the way. Thought I would share some with you.

If you get a chance to hike or ride these trails, they are beautiful this time of the year.

Great pictures, Beverly, but the best part is the camera mount for your bike. I didn't even know they made such things. I'm really sheltered! lol

Beautiful place. Looks like an old railroad tunnel. Would love to see it someday.

The trails are on old railroad beds, so it is an old rail tunnel. Some really loooong bridges, too.

Sharon, they come out with new stuff everyday. Next maybe I'll get a helmet cam.

What a wonderful way to see the countryside. Thanks so much for sharing. Not as good as being there but a good substitute.

That area is so pretty and the trails look great. Glad you got to ride and explore a new area. I'm enjoying your photos of your pre-retreat biking explorations and yours and others from the Camp Cheerio retreat.

How fun! Looks just so peaceful and gorgeous scenery! Never heard of a cam mount for bikes...might have to think about that for DH. TFS

I am so jealous!! I had a that exact same trip scheduled with my Girl Scouts last month and it rained (a lot!) that day, so we had to postpone it. It looks like you had perfect weather!! Beautiful!!

I hadn't heard of a bike mount for a camera. I'll have to look into that one :-)

Great trails, great pictures! I had no idea you could get a mount for the camera - neat idea!
