I know two cyclists who recently had their cars broken into and wallets stolen while riding Skyline, and their car windows smashed. Were in the park's parking lot I think. And I've heard of others experiencing the same. Anyone heard more about such incidents?
It didn't happen when I was there, though a Park Ranger I spoke to specifically asked where I had parked and noted that break-ins were happening at that very spot. (Front Royal side, just outside the park entrance.)
Sad face. I heard the story of our DC Tri friends who had their stuff stolen and it sounded bad.
I prefer to park and ride from Royal Plaza in Front Royal as there are a few more eyes around, AND you get bonus miles in before and after SNP!
