Today we woke up expecting the hardest ride of the summer: 100 miles through the Blue Ridge mountains in the Shenandoah National Park with almost 10,000 feet of climbing. Turns out, for a lot of us, it was our absolute favorite ride with beautiful scenic outlooks and fast windy descents. After arriving at a high school for lodging, we quickly showered and changed for dinner at Naked Mountain Vineyard owned by a Pi Alpha from Virginia Tech. To finish off the night, we finally had our own Pi Alpha initiation ritual. It was an amazing experience!
