2019-10-19 08:30:00 2019-10-19 08:30:00 America/New_York Tour of Fort Valley and Shenandoah Valley aka Edinburg Gap & Beyond Use your long-distance legs for one more ride before it gets too cold. This is one of the most varied and wonderful routes in Northern Virginia. From Front Royal we head west to Fort Valley, the valley within the Shenandoah Valley, where the north end isn't much wider than a two-lane road. The valley opens up as we reach the first rest stop at mile 20, the Fort Valley Store. We continue south until turning west for the 2-mile climb up Edinburg Gap (mile 30) and the longer descent into Edinburg. It's then west to Columbia Furnace, for rest stop 2 at mile 41. Now its north on the rolling hills of Back Road and after a few turns, rest stop 3 at mile 67 in Middletown. The final dozen miles or so are mostly down hill or flat back into Front Royal. I'll be leading from behind at a B pace. Analog/Paper cue sheets will be available at the ride start. Ride start has restrooms. If 79 miles is too long for you, you're free to ride out-and-back into Fort Valley. If you have questions, call or email, but don't wait until the morning of the ride. Eastham Park (EAS)
