This well-supported event offers camaraderie and challenge for every rider’s ability with a choice of 27, 45, 49, 75 and 100 mile routes as you ride at your own pace along safe and scenic well-marked country roads.
Both the 27 & 45 mile routes follow a course of rolling hills and meandering back roads. For the 4th year, The Mountain ONLY route (49 miles) – riders drive to Big Island and start and finish there – riding an amazing 49 mile loop that tackles Thunder Ridge and Curtis.
The longer 75 & 100 mile routes test rider stamina with a 13 mile ascent to Apple Orchard Mountain, the highest peak of the Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia.
