What better way to celebrate Mother's Day? This route starts with lots of rollers before the 7-mile climb up Thornton Gap to Skyline Dr. That should make Hogback and Mt. Marshall seem easy. You'll be rewarded with a 6-mile descent to Front Royal. The reason for riding Skyline in this direction is to get to Blue Mtn late in the ride. A 5-mile climb with 2 of them unpaved that's no problem for roadies. We've been riding it a lot because it's a fun climb.

What better way to celebrate Mother's Day?

This route starts with lots of rollers before the 7-mile climb up Thornton Gap to Skyline Dr.

That should make Hogback and Mt. Marshall seem easy. You'll be rewarded with a 6-mile descent to Front Royal.

The reason for riding Skyline in this direction is to get to Blue Mtn late in the ride.

A 5-mile climb with 2 of them unpaved that's no problem for roadies. We've been riding it a lot because it's a fun climb.

Rest stops at miles 27, 45, 70, & 91.

There's a park entrance fee of $8. I have a season pass and can each get 3 others in for free, so we'll try to regroup at the gate.

No go in rain. Check website and Google Group "Pedalers" for updates if weather's iffy.
