Ok, I'm digging a little back but wanted to share a few pictures from one of the coolest rides that most people have never heard of. Every year the Blue Ridge Bicycle Club of Roanoke puts on a century ride called the Artie. In 2015 the route took on some good terrain and spectacular scenery. I wasn't around for the 2016 version. Don't miss this ride. It doesn't have the cache of Mountains of Misery or Assault on Thunder Ridge but the course is always as good.
