April 27, 2012
The Inter-Mountain

SNOWSHOE - Join the American Lung Association in West Virginia on a 3-day, 100-mile ride along the Greenbrier River Trail, one of America's premier rail-to-trail paths.

The ride starts at 10 a.m. May 18 at The Inn at Snowshoe and concludes at noon May 20.

The ride winds its way through the spectacular scenery of the Greenbrier Valley along the Greenbrier River. During the trek, participants will go through two tunnels and enjoy relaxing lunches along the river. The trail is hard-packed and bicycles with large, wide tires are recommended.

Check-in is May 17 at Camp Anthony in Anthony. Riders will be bused to The Inn at Snowshoe, where on Friday the adventure begins with a 34-mile ride along the Greenbrier River and continues on Saturday with a 44-mile trek. Riders will complete the final 22 miles of the journey on Sunday by noon.

There is a registration fee to participate and riders are asked to commit to a minimum fundraising for the American Lung Association.

All meals as well as refreshments on the trail are included, beginning Friday through breakfast on Sunday. Hotel rooms are provided on Thursday and Friday nights at The Inn at Snowshoe. Saturday night accommodations include bunkhouse-type lodging at Camp Anthony.

Transportation includes gear shuttle, "sag" service and rest stops every eight to 10 miles. Medical personnel and a bike mechanic will accompany the trek.
