Driving down from Toronto next week to do some cycling around Harrisonburg. I wanted a destination that wasn't too far, had some hills, and good bike culture. This seems like a good fit!?! I've been able to gleam some information on the area, including routes, from Shenandoah bike shop and Alpine Loop Gran Fondo. Temps look ok (to a Canadian ) with a forecast of 6-15c (I ride all winter so that's great).
I'm still deciding between my road bike with skinny tires or a beefier touring bike with 32mm tires (if there are nice gravel roads in the area I may opt for the touring bike...though the road bike is itchin to get out).
Any advice, links, etc., from folks who ride, or have ridden in this area?
