Shenandoah Fall Foliage Bike Festival
For more than 30 years, the Shenandoah Fall Foliage Bike Festival has attracted experienced century cyclists, mid-distance recreational riders and novices, and families to the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia to enjoy a weekend of beautiful riding and friendly hospitality. The festival — which annually draws between 600-750 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.
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.
Choose from nine different routes over two days with plenty of rest stops (offering a variety of snacks) and a hearty post-ride meal on Saturday and brunch on Sunday prepared by the master cooks of our local Ruritan Clubs.
