On Saturday June 26th 2021 we lost our friend and hero Jay Moglia, founder and longtime operator of the Lost River Barn aka the Raw Talent Ranch. Please join us for a memorial ride for Jay on Saturday August 7th, starting and ending at the Barn.
We will leave at noon on a route TBD but incorporating at least two loops of different lengths & difficulty. There will be a catered BBQ afterward, and folks are encouraged to bring musical instruments or make use of some of Jay's which will be on site. The grounds of the Barn will be open for anyone who wants to camp there overnight on Friday or Saturday, but accommodations in the Barn itself are not available, being reserved for close family & friends.
More info including links to GPS routes will be forthcoming. Please check back on this page for updates, or see the events linked below:
Raw Talent Ranch is a place for cyclists to connect with the pure and expansive idyllic 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 your 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 fifteenth year hosting team training camps and we have been lucky to see some of the top cyclists in the country experience what Lost River has to offer.
Beautiful 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’.
