Mountain Bike Virginia explores the land whose terrain and geography are as unique and diverse as its history is rich and exciting. If you enjoy exploring remote coastal environments or the quiet backroads of Central Virginia's horse and wine country, or if you prefer hurtling down white-knuckled descents, crossing over deep river gorges, and cycling past waterfalls, wildlife, and rolling pastures, then Virginia is the place to be and this book is for you. Throughout its pages, Mountain Bike Virginia describes more than 50 of the state's greatest mountain bike rides, from sea level along the dunes at False Cape to nearly 6,000 feet atop the wind-beaten summits of Virginia's highest peaks. This guide contains exhaustive and comprehensive trail descriptions from beginner to advanced, GPS-quality, digitally designed relief maps detailing each ride, accurate route profiles showing the ups and downs of each ride, detailed directions to get you to the ride without getting you lost and detailed mile-by-mile directional cues, difficulty ratings, elevation gain, trail contacts, and much more. (5 1/2 x 8 1/2, 384 pages, maps, b&w photos)
Scott Adams has written several mountain biking guidebooks, including Mountain Biking Washington, DC/Baltimore (now in its fourth edition) and Mountain Bike Madness in Central Pennsylvania. He is a regular contributor to MetroSports Magazine and has competed in more 24-hour races than he likes to remember.

Few things reward him more than a long hike to the top of a mountain or an early-morning bike ride with no particular place to go.
