Shenandoah Weekend - 2017

Dreaming of summer, a cool mountain breeze, and spending some time poolside? Then mark your calendars for the Potomac Pedalers Shenandoah Valley Weekend, July 7-9. Based in Mt. Jackson, Virginia, the area is a fabulously bucolic place for cyclists — no sprawl, little traffic and plenty of corn. ​

When: Friday, July 7, 2017
12:00 PM
Where: Super 8
250 Conicville Blvd.
Mt. Jackson, Virginia  22842
United States
Contact: Brenda Ruby

Online registration is available until: 7/3/2017

All rides start and end at the hotel. You’ll enjoy scenic rides, mountain views, creeks, and a top-notch covered bridge. This year we are also hoping to repeat the short “fun ride” Friday to the Route 11 potato chip factory — with some luck we’ll have them do a “fry” for us! There are lots of different cue sheets to choose from — rides range in length from 17 to 70 miles providing variety for all types of riders. One ride each day will be the “featured” ride led by one of the ride leaders and will have varying length options.

You’ll have the opportunity to explore nearby vineyards, the Mt. Jackson Arts Museum, the Rt. 11 Potato Chip factory, antique stores, Bryce resort, Shenandoah Caverns, Civil War battlefields; go duckpin bowling; or just lounge by the pool!

We are staying at our usual motel in Mt. Jackson, which is only a few hours from Washington, DC — it's under the same management, but is scheduled to have undergone some renovations while changing from a Super 8 to a Motel 6 by our visit. Most rooms have double beds and all rooms have microwaves, refrigerators, and coffee makers. Bicycles can be stored in the rooms. Roommates can be assigned for those wanting a double. Pets are welcome, though there is a separate charge per pet per night. You must pay the hotel separately to do this.

Don't forget your bathing suit! The motel has a large pool and party room that serve as the center of activity for after-ride frivolity! Come see why this weekend is so popular — it's like summer camp for adults!

 Cue sheets will be available by noon on July 7, so plan to come early and ride.  Attendance is limited to the first 80 people.

 COST (for PPTC Members):

Single: $235 per person
Double: $175 per person

Non-members must include an additional $30 nonmember fee or you can join PPTC and not have to pay the non-member fee.

PRICE INCLUDES: The weekend includes Friday and Saturday night lodging, a welcome party Friday night, a picnic dinner Saturday night, a hospitality room open all weekend filled with healthy and not so healthy drinks and snacks, a map packet, and all taxes and gratuities. Breakfasts are not included; the hotel does not offer a Continental breakfast but is attached to a Denny's and across the street from Sheetz. We will also have the hospitality room open at breakfast-time, offering fruit and PB&J sandwich makings.
