A TOF Brothers tradition evolved this year as we rode the South River Ride again in preparation for the Nelson County Scenic Route (a 50 mile loop of mountain scenery designed for auto driving). The ride begins in Buena Vista and follows Route 60 east to the Blue Ridge Parkway. Continuing north on the Parkway to Whetstone Ridge provides great training for mountain climbing as the first twenty miles are mostly uphill. The rest of the 43 mile ride includes a brake gripping drop from Montebello to Vesuvius and then a fine roll back to Buena Vista along the South River. Great ride today; we ARE ready for the Nelson!
