B/BB (MH) * 60 * VA * 9:30 AM * Blue Ridge Views * Warrenton Municipal Lot-A (WAR)

From downtown Warrenton we’ll head westward to the hills, passing through Orleans on the way to Flint Hill, via the hilly Leeds Manor and Crest Hill Roads. After a rest stop (with flush toilets) at Flint Hil (it's ham biscuit season), we go south on rolling hills through Ben Venue and then east to Rixeyville for stop number two. From there it is east and north back to Warrenton. As the name suggests, there are views of the Blue Ridge plus sightings of lesser-known hill and ridges.

From downtown Warrenton we’ll head westward to the hills, passing through Orleans on the way to Flint Hill, via the hilly Leeds Manor and Crest Hill Roads.

After a rest stop (with flush toilets) at Flint Hil (it's ham biscuit season), we go south on rolling hills through Ben Venue and then east to Rixeyville for stop number two. From there it is east and north back to Warrenton.

Here's a link to the route:  

 http://ridewithgps.com/routes/7433372

 As the name suggests, there are views of the Blue Ridge plus sightings of lesser-known hill and ridges. There is about 3,670 feet of climbing, but no killer steep grades.

A few notes: No restroom at the ride start, so stop at a gas station before arriving or buy coffee at the Red Truck Bakery (two blocks from start) to use their facilities.

To reach Warrenton from the east and avoid traffic snarls in Gainesville, exit I-66 at Haymarket/Hwy. 15 and head south about two miles to Hwy. 29. Turn right and continue until you reach Warrenton. Garmin and other electronic route finders, tend to make you exit I-66 at Gainesville/Hwy. 29, which will only leave you dealing with a lot of traffic lights.

 No go in rain.

Ride leader will pedal at a non-threatening B pace and fully anticipates to be dropped on the hills a few miles outside of Warrenton.

Got questions, call or send e-mail, just don’t wait until the morning of the ride.
