 C/CC (MF) * 35&52 * VA * 10:00  AM * Rural Rogues Road * Brentsville Park (BVP)

Mostly downhill and always a tailwind. This fourth route from Brentsville - like all my others - is a beautiful ride in the countryside. Rogues Road is so named because highwaymen used to enrich themselves at the expense of those looking for their fortune by relocating to the Carolinas. Unfortunately, it was misfortune that the latter sometimes found along the way. The short route visits Rogues Road for only four miles while the long route misses only one of its twenty.

Mostly downhill and always a tailwind. This fourth route from Brentsville - like all my others - is a beautiful ride in the countryside.  Rogues Road is so named because highwaymen used to enrich themselves at the expense of those looking for their fortune by relocating to the Carolinas.  Unfortunately, it was misfortune that the latter sometimes found along the way. 

The short route visits Rogues Road for only four miles while the long route misses only one of its twenty.  There are very few hills, and average ascent is - surprisingly enough - only 35’ per mile for both distances. 

Regardless, the odyssey is more scenic than hilly and is mostly traffic-free except for an ugly one-mile stretch on Vint Hill Road. 

IMPORTANT NOTE:  Ride start is behind the Brentsville Presbyterian Church. 

I may cancel if the forecasted high is above 95 or below 45 degrees or chance of precip is 50% or more.  Please call if weather looks marginal. 

Toilet not available at start.

HELMETS REQUIRED.

Questions? Call me at home NLT 2 hours prior to ride start or on cell thereafter.
