Friday we ride the Virginia Capital Trail, a 51.2 mile multi-use trail. We begin at Chickahominy Riverfront Park which is between mm 6-7. Riders wanting to complete 100+ miles can ride into Jamestown from the start and back to make the full 100+mile circuit. Riders will be able to turn around at any point to manage their mileage. There are many places to get water, food and to stretch along the trail.
Saturday takes all riders across the James River by Ferry. We offer many choices for riding.
· Bike to the Jamestown-Scotland Ferry, cross the James River and ride to Chippokes Plantation State Park (17miles each way)
· Drive to the Jamestown parking lot and board the Ferry on your bike and ride to Chippokes Plantation State Park (10miles)
· Drive to the Ferry and cross in your car then drive the short distance to Chippokes Plantation State Park.
Once at the Park we offer 3 loop rides, all different. Riders may choose to ride all 3 and the 10 miles to and from the Ferry completing just shy of 111 miles. Two Surry Routes (20 & 28miles) will offer lightly traveled rural roads that are fairly flat and have good sight-lines. Perfect for getting up a little speed and working the legs! A third loop (43miles) takes you to the charming Main Street of Smithfield, VA. Stop for lunch and relaxation.
Sunday takes us out and about Williamsburg, James City County, and York County. Water and restrooms will be available at all the parks. Each unique park is a good place to stretch and enjoy the scenery.This will be a more urban route in some places. All routes end with a stop at the Spoke and Art on the VCT to pick up your box lunch included in your registration and the short 4.5 miles back to camp. Or you may finish your ride and then drive back to pick up your box lunch!
The Shenandoah Valley Rail Trail Partnership is an unincorporated coalition of public, private and non-profit organizations along the proposed Shenandoah Valley Rail Trail that have come together with the vision of transforming an unused single-track railroad corridor from Broadway to Front Royal into a multi-use almost 50-mile trail re-connecting communities, businesses, schools and many local cultural and historic resources.
