Directions to Big Country Rally, New Cumberland W.Va.
||Get out your West Virginia map and find Weirton on the Ohio River in the
north eastern pan-handle. New Cumberland is about 8 miles North of Weirton.
|If approaching from the South and you want to make time, cross the Ohio
River to Ohio and follow Hwy 7 North along the river to the bridge for Hwy 22 West
at Weirton. Although a 4-lane slab it follows the river and has its scenic moments.
Hwy 2 on the W.Va. side is very slow and goes through lots of towns. We went
that way once when it was really hot and did not enjoy it.
|If you're lucky during your trip you might come across a group of touring
LeMans like this one. They have to stop frequently being in that middle-age part of
life. But don't let the gray hair deceive you, these guys fly. They've been
known to pass swarms of angry other brand bikes ridden by kids in half age.
