Project Description

SATURDAY RIDES

Enjoy a variety of routes traveling through North-central Augusta County. Our Century, Metric and BOBB routes have been updated and revised. And we’re pleased to welcome back OLD HAT for some live roots music during the lunch stop.

REST STOPS

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.

SATURDAY LUNCH

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).

LIVE MUSIC

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!

Refer to these instructions online — or watch the instructional video below. (Our routes are well-marked on the road and your Event Guide has detailed tear-out route maps with turn-by-turn cue sheets. So even if you can’t get these maps to talk to your device, don’t sweat it. We’ve got you covered!)

SATURDAY CENTURY | YELLOW

100 miles 

STARTS AT: St. Paul’s United Methodist Church  |  The Saturday Century has some new course variations for 2019, including more mileage before lunch (76 miles) — so even super-fast riders will be sure to have the full buffet available when they roll in to Sangerville-Towers! Additional course changes include more mileage east of Interstate 81 near the Piedmont Battlefield. LATE CHANGE: We had to create a 6-mile “out and back section detour” on Dam Town Road as the Knightly Mill steel truss bridge was recently closed by VDOT to all traffic. Miles 24-30 are the only changes to this popular and scenic ride. . . and you’ll still get a beautiful steel truss bridge in Stokesville after you stop for lunch!

SAT METRIC | RIDE WITH GPS

SATURDAY METRIC | ORANGE

64 miles 

STARTS AT: St. Paul’s United Methodist Church  |  Metric Century for Saturday has been revised for 2019 and has some spectacular views. But with over 4,100 ft in elevation gain throughout the course, you’ll be working for them! 

SATURDAY BOBB | GREEN

33.7 miles 

STARTS AT: Sangerville-Towers Ruritan Community Center, Mt. Solon  |  Updated for 2019! The “Bobb Route” is so named because it courses thru Bridgewater, Ottobine and Briery Branch among other small and delightful communities. It’s a lovely route with wonderful scenery and — by a long shot — has more flat roads than any of our other routes, either Saturday or Sunday.

SAT FAMILY | RIDE WITH GPS

SATURDAY FAMILY | PINK

STARTS AT: Sangerville-Towers Ruritan Community Center, Mt. Solon  |  The Family Route is a fairly flat ride with about 700 feet of elevation gain over 12.8 miles. This ride can be shortened to 7 miles by taking the “super not-so-secret-shortcut”, depending on how far the little ones want to ride. It starts and ends at Sangerville-Towers Ruritan — our lunch stop — which is less than a mile from Natural Chimneys State park.
