Anyone else want to do a ride?

Maybe get some people together and do a run up through Colonial Parkway or something?

If memory serves me correctly, it's a "Scenic Parkway" that runs between historical sites from Williamsburg to Jamstown. It also will take you to Rt17 and the bridge at the York River there by Gouster Point, I think.............

Yeah it takes you along the river up in Williamsburg. It's a really beautiful drive and there are a lot of areas to stop and just take in the beauty of the area. These stops also have different signs telling you about the area during the Revolutionary War and how the Colonial and British militaries moved about the area during the Battle of Yorktown.

I guess riding is more for motorcycle groups?
