Still no 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 makes 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. Rest stop options at miles 27, 45, 70 & 91. There's an $8 entrance fee to Skyline.

Still no 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 makes 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.  

Rest stop options at miles 27, 45, 70  & 91.

There's an $8 entrance fee to Skyline but we usually have enough yearly passes among us to get everyone in (we'll try to regroup there); be prepared to pay if we don't.  Front and rear lights are a must for admittance to the park; don't risk getting turned away at the gate.

No go in rain.  

Check website and Google Group "Pedalers" for updates if weather's iffy.
