    Blue Ridge Parkway Weekend

    Join us for a weekend of stunning views, beautiful fall colors, and tough climbs on the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway (BRP).  We will use the Lynchburg NW / Blue Ridge Parkway KOA Campground (*formerly known as Wildwood Campground) as a base camp, and you can cycle as much or as little as you like.  Scheduled rides include a 50-mile ride on Saturday starting from H & H Restaurant at 8:30am (or arrive at 7:30am to join us for breakfast) and going south to MP85.7 (Peaks of Otter Restaurant) for lunch (with a spectacular view) and return.  The trip to Peaks of Otter takes you from the lowest point on the BRP (MP63.6, 668 ft.) where it crosses the James River, to the highest point on the BRP in VA (MP 76.5, 3950 ft.) atop Apple Orchard Mountain.  Bring lots of water for this 12-mile, 3,300' climb!  The 12-mile downhill on the way back is reward for your hard work!  No SAG support.  Optional rides if you arrive early on Friday and on Sunday morning.  Meals at local restaurants or cook in camp (see below).
        
    Camping at Lynchburg NW / Blue Ridge Parkway KOA Campground (*formerly known as Wildwood Campground):  6252 Elon Rd., Monroe, VA  24574 (*from MP61 on the BRP, go 1 mile east on SR-130).  *We typically reserve a group tent camping site and split the total costs per person / per night – contact Robert or Paul for details.

    H & H Restaurant (breakfast, dinner):  H & H Food Market, 11619 Lee Jackson Hwy, Big Island, VA  24526 (5 miles from campground on US Rt. 501), (434) 299-5153, open 7:30am – 8:30pm.  You can also cook in camp if you prefer.

    "Pierce's BBQ Century"

    Looking to squeeze in one last century this year?  This fun and unique TBA century ride breaks up nicely into 4 parts:  35 miles from Suffolk to the Jamestown Ferry, 15 miles from the ferry to Pierce's BBQ in Williamsburg (lunch stop / halfway point), then 15 miles back to the ferry, and 35 miles back to Suffolk.  Cue sheet, map, and directions provided below.

    Bring snacks and $$ for lunch; the ferry rides are free.  Please plan to arrive by no later than 6:45 a.m. to allow for sign-in and pre-ride briefing.  We must depart promptly at 7:00 a.m. to ensure we stay on schedule for catching the ferries and returning to the parking lot before they lock the gates (approx. 5:00 PM).
