Save the date! The 2019 Bike Virginia Tour is scheduled for June 21-26, 2019.

The 2019 event marks 32 years of riding for the Bike Virginia Tour.  

We’re going back to one of our rider favorites, the Shenandoah Valley, for 6 days of riding bliss. Come for a day, come for the Weekend Escape, or all 6 days of riding fun.

Base camp will be located at Masanutten Military Academy  in  Woodstock, Virginia (Masanutten Military Academy) for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (June 21,22,23).

The second base camp will be at Hillendale Park in Harrisonburg, Virginia for the second three days, Monday to Wednesday (June 24, 25, 26).

These two communities warmly welcome us back for the 2019 bike event. They’ve been great host communities in past tours and we are very excited to be working with them to plan an outstanding vacation experience.

Bike Tour of the Shenandoah Valley

Riding in a Shenandoah Valley bike tour like the 2019 Bike Virginia event will treat you to one of the premier riding experiences that Virginia has to offer. This area of Virginia has both valley and mountain road bike riding, offering a great blend for riders who want something with flatter route options than the 2018 tour in the New River Valley in Southwest Virginia.

We’ll be accepting 1,700 riders for the 2019 event. Plan early to save your spot. December 1 marks the opening day of Registration.

Rolling Back Time

Each year we pick a fun theme for our ride. That’s one of the many unique things about Bike Virginia. In 2019 we’re looking back to the 50s for our colorful and and playful Bike-o-rama theme.

We’ll have a fun theme party on the weekend, car show, 50s inspired snacks and entertainment options. And of course, Costumes are encouraged! Prizes for the best bike decor and party costumes.

2019 Bike Virginia Tour – Event Features

Bike Virginia is known for offering a quality riding experience where safety and comfort are the top concerns of the event organizers. 

We offer loop routes so you can choose your ride each day based on elevation, distance, and how you feel that morning. Check out some past routes to see an example of how we work.

Bike Virginia focuses on putting you in the drivers seat.
