The Riding: Bike Virginia Tour
Riding takes place Friday through Wednesday. Riders can choose to sign up for single or multiple days and can register for the all inclusive meals plan or the lunch only plan. Most days will include 2-3 route options providing you a choice of distance and difficulty. Monday and Wednesday will be one-way routes and may offer only 1 route choice as these are “move days”, a day when the entire event relocates to our next host community or returns to the starting location.
Planning for the 2013 routes is underway. Look for draft routes in early spring (Feb/March). For an example of what the ride is like, please see the pdf tour guide book from 2012.
