Shen Valley to Williamsburg

If it doesn't rain Monday I'm headed to Williamsburg to visit my daughter at W&M (traveling from Berryville). I don't think I'll do 95, what do you guys think of 17 past Tappahannock then taking 30/33 through West Point to 64?

RT 17 is always low traffic, easy drive. Two lane/divided highway. However don't get crazy fast, lest you talk to "the man" about it.

Also, if you are intereted, this track was fun Middleburg south to Culpeper. It will line you right up for RT 17. Hopefully, you have time for it though!


If you want the real "off the beaten path route"....

Ferries! Northern Neck VA It goes over 2 free car ferries (check schedule!).

Most likely too late for you but Rt. 14, the trail, is a nice ride. Just make a left between West Point and Glens. It w8ill get you up East of Richmond. Then Skirt South of Lake Anna and head toward Unionville.

What a great day. I just got back in the house. Left at 7:00 AM, got back at 7:00 PM. I spent a great afternoon with my daughter in Williamsburg, and put 450 miles on the bike and 9 hours in the saddle driving on some great back roads.

It rained until I hit Fredericksburg, but I was dressed well so no big. I will have better boots or a second pair of socks and a neck gater on my next long fall ride.

I don't see how some of you guys do the Iron Butt events. I'm 50 and feel fine, but was looking forward to being home at around 350.

The section of 211 between Sperryville and Luray was AWESOME!!!! You need to ride it.



I'll try to put my track online, but the short story was
Going Down:
Berryville Rt. 340 South to Rt. 255
Rt. 255 South through Millwood to Rt. 50 East
Rt. 50 East to Rt. 17 by Sky Meadows Park
Rt. 17 South past Fredricksburg, a zig on Rt. 3 then turn onto Rt. 2
Rt. 2 / 301 South to Rt. 30 through West Point to Rt. 64
Rt. 64 to Williamsburg

Back
Pretty much the reverse until Rt. 3 south of Fredericksburg.
Took Rt. 3 to Culpeper
Rt. 522 North to Sperryville
211 West to Luray (Shenandoah National Park)
340 to Berryville
