Hot Springs,VA or "The Homestead" Spa or RoanokePaulCL
Aug 16, 2002 7:25 AM
I gave my wife a 'spa' weekend for her 40th birthday present (ain't I a great husband!!). We are going to spend the weekend at "The Homestead" in Hot Springs, Va which is about an 1 1/2 hours from Roanoke. At my wife's suggestion (really!), I am bringing my bike.

A few questions for locals....Any suggestions on where to ride in the area?? Any local shops to contact to get maps or ride buddies?? I'll be riding on Saturday and Sunday late morning. As my wife is getting a pedicure, I'll be pedalling...Thanks. Paul

How was it? I could have helped had I checked the board recently. Love to ride in that area!

We leave on Friday morning. Keep your fingers crossed for me on the weather.

I hooked up with a couple of local Roanoke guys to ride with. They are going to drive up to Hot Springs Saturday AM to meet me for a few hours of riding. Should be fun.

Lots of hill...er...mountains. I was able to hang in on the climbs until about mile 50 or so. Then my legs said no more. Beautiful area. I want to go back!
