Like I said, all skill levels are covered at Belle Isle, from flat and easy to steep and impossible. In the video, the descent that we all “biffed” on (some worse than others) is a good example of some of the more difficult terrain to be found there.
The rocks on the river is trials heaven. And the threat of falling into the water adds an extra degree of “danger”.
If people decide to come down, HoW would be more than happy to give a “tour” of the island. Heck, we could call it a Virginia Muni Weekend!
im down for the 20th!!! in addition to belle isle, there are some technical trails (and a dirt track) in dogwood dell and along the james river. i’ll be back in richmond over the winter break and can ride anytime with everyone.
instead of december 20th, how about a richmond muni weekend january 3, 4, and 5? it’ll be cold, and maybe snowing, but what else could you want? i wanna set up a good event. sorry the date is so bad, but theres not much i can do about it
