    Now all the places I have listed above I have been to except the Cass Railroad Ride. Many of the parks listed have lodging, cabins or camp grounds near by and good for group rides.
    I will try to update this list over time as I go explore this state my self.

    I see you have alot of good information about traveling West Virginia. My wife and I are planning our yearly ride and want to do a loop in WV. We always do our vacation in October (wife does not like hot weather). I have ridden all over the southern part of WV since I grew up on eastern Kentucky.
    Do you have any suggestions about organizing my trip? We will be leaving central Tennessee and have about 8-10 days to ride. We try to limit our daily travel to around 300-350 miles in a day. Any help from anyone would be appreciated.
