Hillsboro > Rt 9 > Harpers Ferry Rd -- condition for solo riding
I'm heading out to Breaux Vineyards on Saturday for their annual Cajun Festival. Was going to ride my bike out to there from Reston and meet some friends who will give me a ride home.
The only question I had is how is the riding on Rt. 9 from Hillsboro to Harpers Ferry Rd and then the approximately two miles up HF Road to Breaux Vineyards. I'd probably be on there around 11:00ish in the morning. FYI, I'm used to riding a lot of the roads in that area (Mountain Rd, Stony Point/Woodgrove, Hillsboro Rd, Milltown, Hamilton Station, etc.), just have never ventured west past Hillsboro to know the width of the road, shoulders, etc.
I will NOT be riding home on those roads after hundreds of people have spent the day in the hot sun drinking wine and eating crawfish.
