 Raw Talent Ranch is a place for cyclists to connect with the pure and expansive idylic roads of Hardy County, West Virginia.  Whether you’re just discovering the rich rewards the bike brings or you are a racer looking to fine tune  form and test your limits RTR offers a challenge set against a backdrop to remember and inspire.  Riders are housed at the Lost River Barn, a renovated barn with all the amenities that is ideal for staging and even better for recovering and relaxing after a big day in the saddle.  This is our fifth year  hosting team training camps and we have been lucky to see some of the top men and woman in the country experience what Lost River has to offer.  Be

autiful  valleys, sprawling mountaintop meadows, fire roads through the George Washington National Forest and lots of uncluttered and changing scenery is in abundance.  There are multiple ride options and each route is it’s own character and adventure.

Tired of the busy city life?  Too much traffic and not enough space?  Need a break?  Maybe some quiet time with a little fun?  How about a retreat to the scenic mountains of West Virginia?  And while you’re at it, stop in and see us at Hidden Trails Stables for a relaxing, beautiful guided trail ride.  Located inside of Lost River State Park and have trail rides that range from a pony ride, for the youngsters, to a 2-hour ride, for the true adventurer.    First timer?  No need to worry.  Most of our riders are first-timers and we are proud to say that almost all return with a smile.  Have children?  No problem.  We take children 7 and older out on the trails with us and for those younger who are just itchin’ to get in the saddle, we take them on a “hand-held” ride on a trail right near the barn.

    Do you host cycling clubs and or goups of cyclists of a much more “casual” nature? Racing is long past us, but we do ride a lot. Being West Virginians, we’re used to lots of climbing.

      Hi Steve:
      Raw Talent Ranch actually sponsors lots of cyclist clubs. They have a large barn that can house big groups and they are avid cyclists and know all of the best local roads for cycling. You can find them at http://www.lostriverbarn.com or you can contact the owner Jay Moglia at mogliajay@yahoo.com
