B/BB (MH) * 62 * VA * 8:30 AM * All of Snickersville Turnpike * Northern Fauquier Community Park,

One of my favorite Northern Virginia roads is Snickersville Turnpike, the 15-mile country byway connecting the metroplexes of Aldie and Bluemont. As the name suggests, we’ll ride all of Snickersville. The ride starts about a mile east of Marshall at Northern Fauquier Community Park on Hwy 55. The official address is 4155 Monroe Parkway, Marshall, VA 20115. There is plenty of parking and flush toilets, a major advantage to the park and ride lots of Marshall and The Plains.

Ride Map:

The ride starts about a mile east of Marshall at Northern Fauquier Community Park on Hwy 55. The official address is 4155 Monroe Parkway, Marshall, VA 20115.  There is plenty of parking and flush toilets, a major advantage to the park and ride lots of Marshall and The Plains. 

Gathering spot is the second parking lot on the left after entering the park from Hwy. 55. Parking lot entrance is on Ross Road, a left turn from the main entrance road.


From the park, we
ll go through The Plains and use Hopewell/Waterfall Road to cross the ridge to the east. Then well wander north to Aldie for rest stop 1 at about 21.5 miles. Then its onto Snickersville Turnpike all the way to Bluemont and climb up to Hwy 7.  Well do a U-turn and head back on Snickersville to the Airmont Store for a rest stop at about mile 40. Then its back to Marshall via Rokeby and Rectortown Roads. Total climbing is about 3,700 feet according to RideWithGPS. 

Web address for the park is [ www.fauquiercounty.gov/government/departments/parksrec/index.cfm?action=nsfc ] I
ll post the GPS route closer to the ride day. 

Ride leader will likely be moseying along at a B-pace in preparation for Sunday's Arcade Fire concert.

No go in rain.  Got questions, call or send e-mail, but call before the morning of the ride.
