This will be a metric century ride starting from the Jamestown Settlement and doing a big loop on some of our favorite roads in James City and York Counties. The route is actually only about 60 miles but you can always ride out to the island & back. :-) The expected pace will be about 16-17 mph (average), so technically this would be classified as a "B+", however my intent will be to keep the group together and adjust the pace and regroup as needed.
There will be two rest stops at York River State Park and Little Creek Reservoir Park but we may take a couple short informal breaks as the group desires. NOTE: neither of the rest stops is at a convenience store so make sure to bring any snacks as needed.
Meet in the area of the Settlement Parking lot adjacent to the Colonial Parkway (across from the Billsburg Brewery entrance). Stick around for a beer or eats after the ride!
The route incorporates the new Monticello Trail.
Everybody is welcome.
