From Marshall, we'll ride through Rectortown, Delaplane, Upperville, Airmont, Philomont, Middleburg, and The Plains--the heart of Virginia horse country--before returning to Marshall. Roads include Maidstone Road, Delaplane Grade, Snickersville Turnpike, Landmark School Rd., and Halfway Rd. RideWithGPS claims there is 3,500 feet of downhill and an equal amount of uphill.

 

If the temperature or legs aren't cooperating there is a bailout route of 30 miles. We'll pass by plenty of country stores and Middleburg's array of food options, so you'll never be more than 15 miles from warm coffee. Ride leader will go uphill at a B pace, and BB on the downhills. Plan on one rest stop at Airmont Store.

 

Here's the route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/17312378

 

Note that the ride start is Northern Fauquier Community Park, about one mile east of downtown Marshall on Hwy 55. Park features restrooms with running hot water and flush toilets. (Heck, you even charge a cell phone.)

 

The park's official address is 4155 Monroe Parkway, Marshall, VA, 20116. The gathering spot is the second parking lot on the left after entering the park from Hwy. 55. Parking lot entrance is on Ross Road, a left turn from the main entrance road.

 

Got questions? Contact me, just don't wait until the morning of the ride.

 

No go in rain, ice or gale force winds.
