The route is an amazing, super-premier east coast mountain bike dream ride. 70% singletrack, arguably some of the world's best, RockStar is already being regarded as a legendary challenge ride. RockStar does not exhaustively explore all trail areas it touches BUT it will give folks a good taste of each ride destination the route encounters to hopefully fuel their interest in coming back again and again. Make no mistake, this is a rider's course. it's *not* a get you from A to B on dirt as directly as possible. It's a route that will thrill and delight. you'll be bursting with excitement at Black Sheep Coffee Harrisonburg​ and when you arrive at the Texas Tavern​ in Roanoke you will have done something incredibly epic, amazing and very possibly life changing.
