This route traverses some of the off the beaten path roads of western Loudoun County. The ride will start at Loudoun County High School and follow Old Waterford Road to the historic town of Waterford. We’ll cross Catoctin Creek via the historic John G. Lewis Memorial Bridge (moved to its current location in 1932) on our way to our first rest stop at CEA Farms (mile 22.1).

 

From our rest stop, we’ll travel some beautiful back roads to Hamilton for an optional rest stop at mile 30.5. There is a bailout back to LCHS via the W&OD at mile 29.8.

 

From Hamilton, the route passes Wegmeyer Farms, known for their strawberries & pumpkins, to our highest point on the ride (Thomas Mill Road).  Luckily, Thomas Mill Road is paved on the downhill side, so we can enjoy all the effort exerted on the climb!

 

Note that most of the route will be over gravel roads, so ensure you have a properly equipped bicycle and tires. There will be over 2,700' of elevation gain. The ride will start at 8:00 as the ride leader is a Cleveland Browns fan (save all the ribbing for the ride).

 

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.
