Dingess Tunnel is a unique West Virginia treasure. Located in Mingo county WV the town of Dingess WV is accessed through an old railroad tunnel that's full of WV history. Whether its the ghosts that allegedly haunt it from train wrecks, or its part in the WV coal wars.
I'd like to know where all the bricks came from. That town is bricks and stone. Been there many times. Some of the best twisties in the state are on 16 South as soon as you turn off 52. It's also an hour or so from back of the Dragon.

Well, its that time of year to start planning your 2022 rides and adventures. Darian White over at Kustom Graphics in Harlan KY created some images for us for a promotion we talked about last year but didn’t start it because it was too late in the season.
So I give you… The WV Bigfoot Challenge. I’ve gathered all the distances and GPS info for all the roads that go from one border of WV to the other. Also included a few that don’t completely transverse the state but are worthy of listing. 15 roads total. The idea is that with all these roads going into the far reaches of the backroads of WV, surely you are going to run upon Bigfoot. We know he’s out there somewhere.
If you decide to accept this challenge and ride all the designated routes listed on the map from end to end. Backroads WV will give you a free poker chip in recognition of your accomplishment. Unlike the trademarked Iron B@tt challenge, we won’t require gas receipts and times, just your word that you have met the criteria. We riders pride ourselves on our honor and integrity, so I will accept your word that you have achieved this Bigfoot Challenge. It would be nice if you would document your travels in search of Bigfoot on one of our social media pages. Everyone loves picture of our machines out in the back woods.
So start planning your summer rides accordingly and please SHARE this with any group that might be interested in the challenge. I will place the order for the poker chips soon.
PS. If you have already rode some of these routes from end to end you don't have to ride them again this year to be awarded the WV Bigfoot Challenge poker chip.
