July 4-5-6-7, 2019


Meet at 10:45 am Friday morning, July 6th at the Moose Lodge, and begin riding at 11. We'll be on smooth, flat VA 311 for just one mile before turning onto lower traffic roads. The route is out and back on Bradshaw Road, and you can ride any distance before turning around to return to the Moose Lodge. We are inclined to go out apx. 15 miles before heading back. Our typical pace is 12-14 mph. Below is an RWGPS link showing one-way, 15 miles. You can easily add or subtract distance from this 30 mi. total, and you can ride with new or old friends at any pace.
