Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

This will be our second year. Last year was a great time. Not a competitive ride, but a lot of fun: frequent rest stops with lots of food, great people, great support, fun evening activities, beautiful scenery on the routes. This year looks to be a little different with only 2 towns on the overnight list. Advantage is less breaking camp and setting up the tent. One surprise for us last year was the age range - highest percentage of riders was in the 45-55 age range.

This year my wife and I are opting for the tandem to see how we like that.

I rode it last year and had a wonderful time. Well organized and executed - great folks. Wife (nonrider) also had a good time seeing the countryside. We would highly recommend it. I understand that it is now too late - the ride is full.

I think the area is around Williamsburg and Hopewell. For you this will be flat with a few small hills.
