Cyclists can choose from 26, 55 or 100 miles on mostly back roads throughout Page County (a unique and historic section of the Shenandoah Valley which lies between Massanutten Mountain to the west and the Blue Ridge to the East) visiting area farms as well as downtown Shenandoah.

We have put together challenging courses which will travel mostly back roads throughout Page County (a unique and historic section of the Shenandoah Valley which lies between Massanutten Mountain to the west and the Blue Ridge to the East) visiting area farms which will serve as fully-supported pit stops, as well as downtown Shenandoah.

Participants may choose from a Century (100 mi); a Half-Century (55 mi); and a Quarter-Century (26 mi).  You will be provided with a cue sheet of the route, which will also be fully-marked on the road.  Remember that this is a ride and not a race, and while there will be some support at key intersections, you must obey all traffic laws.

Once you reach the finish, you will be treated to a meal made entirely from Page County Grown food prepared by the chef at the Mimslyn Inn.  Snacks and drinks will be available at pit stops at memeber farms along the course as well.

All courses open at 7:30 AM and close at 5:00 PM.  Registration opens at 6:30 AM.  Century participants are encouraged but not required to roll out at 7:30 AM.  Food will be served from noon to 5:00 PM.

All routes are concrete and asphalt with rolling hills, with some minor short uphill sections of packed dirt and gravel less than a half mile in length.  While the course is rideable on road bike with high-quality race wheels and there will be some support vehicles on course, participants are expected to come prepared with appropriate equipment.  The century route has approximately seven thousand (7,000) feet of climbing.

Please note that there are a few major “highway” crossings on the century route.  While we will place warning signs along the road alerting motorists at these crossings and there are clear sight lines for cyclists, participants are expected to be alert as always and obey all traffic laws.

HELMETS are required on this ride!
