Mill Mountain Downhill

One of my favourite rides in the Roanoke area is to leave the centre of the city and climb up Mill Mountain along the closed-to-traffic Greenway, and admire the view from the star before turning left and completing the loop with a screaming descent back into town.

Dan Casey, with whom we rode only only a few weeks ago, wrote up this ride in his cycling column for the Roanoke Times and I have done it often, finishing with a Mill Mountain Coffee espresso. Dan has gone all high-tech now and as you can see he has put the ride onto video and although it is better to do it in person it is still a blast to watch.
