Did you know we have a meeting room that you can rent?   Any homeowner in good standing can rent the Parkway meeting room.  It holds up to 49 people and has tables and chairs, and a kitchen with a fridge and microwave. The room is available to CountrySide homeowners and tenants for rentals such as birthday parties and baby showers.  It is not available for “for profit” activities such as home direct sale gatherings.

The Meeting Room is also used by Proprietary Committees for their meetings, and non-profit groups such as Scouts with a special application.

The rental fee is $125.00 for 4 hours.  There is a $400 deposit and a $50 key deposit which is refundable. The rental forms and rules are on our website at www.countryside-va.org under Amenities.

Trail Etiquette for Bicycling

Trail Etiquette for bicycling:

Recreational paths and trails have become quite popular. As a result, trails can become very congested and safety is a major issue. Whether bicycling, walking, or jogging, following the same rules as everyone else will help you have a safer, more enjoyable time.

Trails have engineering and design limitations that require you to ride differently than you would on the road. If your preferred speed or style of cycling is inappropriate for trails, look for better suited alternative routes.

Be Courteous
All trail users, including bicyclists, joggers, and wheelchair users, should be respectful of other users, regardless of their mode of travel, speed, or skill level.

Give an Audible Signal When Passing
Give a clear signal when passing. This signal may be a bell, horn, or voice. Warn in advance so that you have time to maneuver if necessary. “Passing on your left” is the most common signal used to alert other users of your approach.

Keep Right
Stay as close to the right side of the trail as is safe, except when passing another user.

Pass on Left
Pass others who are going your direction on their left. Look ahead and behind to make sure the lane is clear before pulling out. Pass with ample separation. Do not move back to the right until safely past. Fast-moving users are responsible for yielding to slower moving users.

Clean up Litter
Do not leave any debris along the trail. If you drop something, please pick it up and carry it until you find a litter receptacle. Go the extra mile—pack out more trash than you bring in.
