Biking

BikingSweet Briar’s extensive trail network is mountain bike-friendly, but should you want to ride off campus, check out the local trails at Peaks View Park, Candlers Mountain and Blackwater Creek in Lynchburg. If you want to venture even farther, check out Falling Creek Park in Bedford or Carvin’s Cove in Roanoke. The folks at Blackwater Bike Shop and Bikes Unlimited in Lynchburg can help outfit you with gear, provide instruction, repair your busted bike, and share advice on trails and group rides.
