Road Conditions- the ride consist of approximately 70% packed gravel roads, 25% country rural roads, and 5% smooth city roads. For most riders this isn't a route for your lightest race ready road machine-for most riders we would suggest 28c or wider tires.

The course is open to traffic, and all Virginia traffic laws must be followed by the riders. 

This isn't a race but for those who enjoy a little spirited competition among friends, there will be 3 King/Queen of Mountains segments placed through out the route. There will be signs on the route indicating the start and finish of each segment (2 climbs and a sprint).
