Hi. This is a shout out to cyclists in this region of the eastern US. My friend & I have scrounged a few days off from work both and we're looking to use them for a 2-3 day ride around Charlottesville, how far around we're not sure. This should be October 17th to the 20th (not a firm plan just yet).
Advise us if you have any ideas about routes, weather (should we expect a lot of rain & cold? or is it temperate, low 50s that time of year?), campgrounds or decently priced cabins...(maybe too much to ask for I realize). My riding buddy & I did a MS ride in that area 2 summers ago, very pretty & I expect Fall to be even better. We have a tent, stove & panniers so I guess good maps is the next essential.
Suggestions, restaurants, wineries, stretches of road w/ great views, just about anything local cyclists would recommend.
We'd appreciate any feedback.
