I'm riding from upstate NY to Norfolk VA, next month, and most of my route is set but I'm not so sure about this particular leg, Harpers Ferry WV to Fredericksburg VA. I'll be on my Jamis Aurora touring bike.
I'll be coming in on the C&O Canal towpath, staying the night at Harpers Ferry, then continuing on the canal. My route as of now has me coming off the path at Brunswick, getting down to the Washington and Old Dominion Trail abt 4 miles before Leesburg, staying on WODT to Reston, then taking what look like bike trails along Fairfax Parkway and other roads winding down to Joplin through Quantico then winding down to Fredericksburg, here's the tentative route: http://ridewithgps.com/routes/1251310
I'm especially concerned about the bit between Reston and F'burg.
Are these roads okay to ride on? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
