    Default SW VA road cycling.

    My girlfriend and I are planning on passing through over the weekend on the way to N Myrtle Beach. We were curious about any decent trails near Wytheville? I see there is a New River Trail as well as the Virginia Creeper Trail. Unfortunately, Iím not sure are bikes are designed for those trails in regards to the surface. Any asphalt trails in that part of the state?

    I wouldn't do either trail on a track bike, but they don't require mountain bikes either; something like a hybrid or a road bike with 28s or bigger tires would be fine. Creeper trail is probably better for a single day outing, with more trail amenities. New River trail is very nice, but make sure you plan water & food if you're doing the whole thing (it's longer than the creeper trail, so you'll need more planning--if you do a section it can be about the same).
