Bring money for the ferry ride across the Potomac River at Whites Ferry. From Whites Ferry, we’ll ride back into Leesburg (the shoulder on US-15 is wide) and our starting location.  

 

Note that most of the route will be over gravel roads and a dirt path, so ensure you have a properly equipped bicycle and tires. There will be 1851 feet of elevation gain with most of it occurring before the first rest stop.

 

Check the PPTC Web site for last minute updates and cancellations due to bad weather. A no-go decision will be made and posted to the Web site 2 hours before the scheduled start.
