We’ve been saying all along that our region is great for bike riding. We have good bikes in our basement that you can borrow. But if you’d like to ride in nearby Danville (30 miles) you can even rent a bike easily through Zagster, a bike sharing company.
All you have to do is download the Zagster app (http://bike.zagster.com/danville/) join and use your smart phone to unlock and use a bike for a ride along the beautiful 7.5-mile Riverwalk Trail in Danville. The first hour is free and after that, it is $3 an hour.
Using our bikes or your own, you may want to ride the beautiful roads from Oak Grove Plantation. Or you can drive the 6 miles into South Boston and ride the 2.5-mile Tobacco Heritage Trail (maybe making a few round trips.) By summer of 2020, the trail is scheduled to be extended to 4 miles.
Other great options; The High Bridge Rail Rail through Farmville (60 miles away), a longer segment of the Tobacco Heritage Trail near Boydton (36 miles). But for now, forget about the Ringgold Trail, about 20 miles west of Oak Grove. Parts of it were wiped out by a hurricane last November and are not passable
