If you are looking for a progressive bike park in Virginia definitely check out Bryce Resort. They have runs for riders of all skill levels, from beginner friendly tables to full send drops and gaps.
Welcome to another episode of Fly to ride. In this video Per and I headed down to Bryce Resort, in Basye VA, to hit the bike park for some downhill fun. Located between the George Washington National Forest and Shenandoah National Park, and just 30 miles from Harrisonburg, this area is full of epic mountain bike rides.
We chose Bryce because of the proximity to the airport. In fact, the resort has its own private airfield (Sky Bryce Airport VG18). The flight from Brandywine PA only took us 45 mins, and within mins of landing we were off and riding.
We managed to get in multiple runs down the mountain, but focused most of our energy on Brew Thru, Screwdriver to Car Bomb, and Pickleback. All three of these runs include roll downs, or ride arounds, if you are not ready for a full send. The video below shows full runs of each of these trails.
There are multiple accommodations at the resort and plenty of other activities. For refreshments we took advantage of their outdoor grill as we sat in front of the mountain and watched riders come down. Of course, they also have bike rentals, preform repairs and a pretty nice gift shop.
There are only two downsides at Bryce. One, at 10 plus mins, the lifts are pretty slow. Considering each run in only 700 ft in elevation lost, you spend a lot of time going up. The second downside is the elevation. These trails are a lot of fun but you are done before you know it.
Having said that Bryce makes the best of what they have. And they continue to improve and add to the park. With the addition of the Hooch, they now have a pro caliber jumpline for those looking to push their limits. And for beginners, the newly created Old Fashioned is a fast flowy run with tons of berms and rollers.
I highly recommend checking out Bryce Resort if you are in the area. This was my second time there and I already can’t wait to go back.
Special thank you to Per for making this adventure possible! Along with the flight, he supplied all the plain footage as well. If you are interested in aviation, and especially V Tails, please checkout Per’s channel https://www.youtube.com/c/VTalesAviation
