27 Miler

Looking for a enjoyable road cycling experience?   Have you often ridden on bike paths, but are intimidated on riding on the roads?  This is the ride for you.  What better way to experience true road cycling — participate in an organized road ride.

Then join your friends and fellow cyclists on a 27-mile tour over rolling hills and along meandering back roads.

Enjoy breathtaking views of the Blue Ridge Mountains as you pedal at your own pace on safe and lightly-traveled roads.

Don’t worry, we’ve thought of everything! Highly visible route directions. A Fully-stocked rest stop with a bathroom. Mechanical help. Event staff driving the route to check on you. Even a perfect weather. (Okay, we can’t guarantee that!)

You’ll start your ride on flat roads. By the time you’ve warmed up, you’ll be ready for some hills. Gear down and know that your effort will be rewarded each time with flat or downhill sections of road so you can recover.

Need to refill your water bottle or an energy snack? There is a rest stop at mile 12.  This is where you turn around and enjoy your journey home.   Feel free to stop and relax here.  There’s one more hill and then you’re in the home stretch. Great job!

Now go celebrate your awesome accomplishment at the finish by reconnecting with your friends, fellow cyclists or family members. Congratulations! Enjoy great food, music, massage and prizes. Then stick around to cheer other cyclists as they return from their ride.
