RIDING SHENANDOAH VALLEY’S BACK ROADS, OCTOBER 14-16, 2022

Let the Good Times Roll!

It’s been a long year few years and we know you’re itching to get back out on the road and ride with others. Our 2022 Fall Foliage Bike Festival is back on our traditional 3rd weekend in October, and we look forward to seeing you in Staunton, Virginia!

Our 2022 Festival features brand new routes on both days!

In fact, the only repeated route is Sunday’s Family Ride — every other Saturday and Sunday route is totally NEW!

We take everyone’s safety seriously: not just you as riders and families, but also the scores of local volunteers who staff the rest stops, mark the routes and run the logistics. While everyone is tired of COVID safety protocols, you can rest assured knowing that we respect your masking decisions and will offer sanitizer and masks and will implement common-sense distancing in high density settings, such as the lunch line. 

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.
