One guy, five ditches in northern Virginia

Ditches in Northern Virginia

John Egertson sent in some pictures his friend Mike Alexander took of a day’s worth of ditch sessions in northern Virginia. While I certainly appreciate the photos, John and Mike could use an extra body or two in their crew. At the very least, John needs to pick up that camera every once and a while! Hey look, I spelled “Virginia” right this time!

    we rode franconia (fleet street)as far back as about 1980. None of these are franconia, but they’re very similar…

    Those ditches look beautiful! I can’t find any like that in my town.

  8. Franconia Ditch was EPIC! The first guy to take me there was Neil Hughes. Anyone know Neil Hughes? I’d love to get back in touch with him. He was such a ripper, and had a sick half pipe in Annandale.

    • DOn’t know Neil but there was a Sprinfield ramp too in someone’s back yard. He had pet rabbits.

      • Ramp sounds like Tommy Meiklejohn’s. Skated it and the Franconia ditch. Springfield VA…world’s largest parking lot.

  9. I found the target ditch but i have no idea how to get to the others… i live in springfield so i’de love to go to the franconia ditch but no1 ive talked to knows where it is… help please?

    • Look in Franconia Google Earth and search visually from a decent height.

    • Jimi. Dude ! Franconia ditch is in between Flat rock rd, Yadkin ct, China grove ct., Deer gap ct. etc.

      Enjoy
