Where to Ride

This section gives you information on Blacksburg area road rides.

Maps: The yellow line on the maps indicates the route, and ordered yellow dots locate important turns. The text by each dot shows the name and route number of the road you are turning onto. The maps are not all on the same scale.

Elevation Profiles: These can make the routes look hillier than they really are. The profiles don’t all have the same vertical stretch.

Cue Sheets:The mileages are the approximate distance covered, starting from the Chapel. The total route distance is the round trip distance back to the Chapel.

Rides named with an asterisk* start and end some place other than Blacksburg. They may or may not be too far to ride from here.
