Itinerary

The ride begins and ends in Charlottesville, which will make arrival and departure logistics much easier. You will be staying in Harrisonburg, Staunton, Lexington, Peaks of Otter, Natural Bridge, Waynesboro, and Roanok. With so much history and interesting places to see you will have plenty to do to keep you occupied when you’re not riding. The ride goes through the scenic Shenandoah Valley plus you will ride 120 miles of the Blue Ridge Parkway…the most scenic mountain range east of the Rockies.

You will spend two nights at most stops to allow you to explore the area and get to know the town. This is not a ride from point to point every day as there will be a loop ride with various length options on the second day at 3 locations.
You can ride or take the day off and to see the local attractions. There is much to see and do, riding by the Shenandoah Caverns, Natural Chimneys Park, historic battlefields, and one of the Seven Wonders of the World, Natural Bridge Caverns. In Staunton VA you can visit the Frontier Culture Museum to learn about how the early settlers lived.
Visit the Statler Brother’s Museum or learn the legacy of Woodrow Wilson by visiting his birthplace, museum, and research library, the only presidential library in Virginia. In Lexington VA, visit the Cyrus McCormick Farm, the Virginia Military Institute; the Stonewall Jackson House; or spend an afternoon wine tasting in one of the Rockbridge County wineries. These are but a few of the things to see and do while not riding…but the riding is some of the best in the country.
