Ten of us started off in Short Pump at a local diner and took some fun back roads up to the top of Carter Mountain Orchards. Our ride leader Jeremiah brought his trailer that he tows behind his Concourse for everyone’s apples and gear for the ride. It started out brisk but I was layered up and kept my hands warm with my heated grips. I recommend these to anyone that is riding in the colder weather. Lots of different options out there. It was a fun ride and very steep at some points going up the mountain. We met another rider out there and did some fun apple picking, got some cider and some amazing doughnuts. I found out that my riding boots are definitely not for walking. From there we went to The White Spot diner for a quick bite. After that we split up and one group went back to Richmond via 64 and the others went the long way home down route 250. It was another successful ride for the RVA Riders Group. My wife also made an amazing apple pie from the apples we picked. Anyone who would like to join us on any of our rides please go to rvaridersgroup.com for more information. We welcome all bikes and riders. If you have any questions about the group or the types of rides we do please feel free to come see Erik at Sprocketz.
