RIDE UPDATE:

 We’re going “Virtual” for 2020

Due to the uncertainty regarding containment of covid-19 and the safety of large gatherings and sports activities here in Virginia, we have decided to cancel the normal in-person Shenandoah Fall Foliage Bike Festival weekend for October 2020. In its place, we will be offering a virtual ride to help support the many charities that typically benefit from this annual event. Details and Registration for the virtual event will be posted by August 1.

We will also have news on an exciting new product by mid-July, which we will share here, on our Facebook page and through email. Thanks for your understanding and please continue to ride safely with good social distancing!

ENJOY ONE OF
AMERICA’S BEST*
FALL BIKE RIDES

*U.S. NEWS & WORLD REPORT

The Shenandoah Bike Foliage Festival offers a full weekend of cycling in some of the most beautiful parts of Virginia. Constant vistas of the Blue Ridge and Allegheny Mountains enhance your enjoyment of the scenic countryside of the Shenandoah Valley.

You’ll pass bucolic farmlands (where the pace of life slows down so much, you may even pass a few horse-drawn buggies), trees loaded with changing Fall colors, historic Civil War battlefields, and small towns with picturesque town squares and classic Americana architecture.

Our festival — which annually draws over 750 riders from up and down the mid-Atlantic states and beyond — was recently featured by mapmyride.com as one of “10 Epic Fall Century Rides in the U.S.” and in U.S. News and World Report’s Travel as one of America’s Best Fall Bike Rides. We go out of our way to make sure you have enjoyable routes with plenty of rest stops (with a variety of snacks ) and a hearty lunch on Saturday and brunch on Sunday prepared by the master cooks of our local Ruritan Clubs.
