I did that trip with the Baltimore Bicycle Club years ago as a two-day trip. We did 111 miles from Front Royal to Waynesboro on Saturday, hotel for the night, and the other way on Sunday, stopping at Big Meadows for lunch each day. Both Big Meadows and Skyland have excellent facilities, but Big Meadows seemed to me to be the logical half-way point. The climbs at the north end on day one weren't too bad. I found the most difficult climb was on Sunday morning coming out of Waynesboro on US Rt. 250 and climbing back up to the Skyline Drive entrance station.

The ride brochure said that the ride included about 10,000 total feet of climbing each day.
