Amazing early summer ride by newfaze at Garmin Connect – Details

Click on the link below if you want to see my very slow but very lovely ride today. Four beautiful hours, a lazy saunter through Goochland, Louisa and Hanover counties. It’s early in the season and I’m still quite slow, but that will improve. I was just happy to be out there.

The first store stop: Owens Creek Corner Store, Louisa, one of my all-time favorite store stops. My bicycle leaning against the wall, a tractor waiting to fill up with diesel:

Owens Creek Corner Store - Mineral, VA

Second store stop: Kersey’s Store, Inez, VA. Or at least that’s what it says on the sign outside. I think it’s really Holly Grove, VA. Maybe even Bumpass. Whatever it’s called, it’s got great trees to sit under and be very lazy:

Kersey's Store, Bumpass, VA

    Sooo, is Owens Creek Corner Store really on a corner? Great photo. I like the fact that the view is from the store looking out on the road- not what one sees when driving by.

    • Indeed it is really on a corner! 1534 Owens Creek Road, Mineral, VA 23117. The corner of Owens Creek Rd. (State Rte. 663) and Holly Grove Dr. (State Rte. 610). The owner is a fantastic guy, his son works there, great picnic tables outside, excellent stop. Shady maple trees over the picnic tables – it’s hard to leave! The picture is taken from one of the picnic tables.
