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!
The Fall Foliage Bike Festival is known for its great rest stops. Manned by volunteer groups from around Augusta County, each rest stop is encouraged to offer up a variety of homemade snacks to supplement the water, sports drink and fresh fruit each stop is provided.
Our Saturday lunch stop is well-known as one of the finest ride lunches in the country. A HUGE buffet spread of sandwich makings, salads, soups, stews and desserts offers up plenty of choice fro hungry riders of all ages. The Beverley Manor Ruritan Club and lunch organizers Robin and Mike Ruleman work all year to plan for this event (their largest fundraiser of the entire year).
For the past four years, we’ve been pleased to present some of the finest local roots music during the lunch stop. Back again from 2018 is OLD HAT, a Staunton-Based band that enjoys playing the blues, Americana, honky-tonk, and rock and roll!
