COMMUNITY

At the westernmost tip of Virginia, wedged tightly between Kentucky, Tennessee, West Virginia and North Carolina, you'll find the Heart of Appalachia, literally the center point of the Appalachian Mountains and home to our Appalachian Backroads.  Our friend at RoadRUNNER Magazine, Florian Neuhauser, describes our area as "A region with so much natural beauty, sinuous asphalt, and tourism still largely in its infancy, it's the perfect area to explore on two wheels."
