Tour de Skyline (18th Annual)
Le Tour de Skyline (TdS) is two-day ride from Front Royal to Waynesboro (day one) and back (day two) along Skyline Drive in Shenandoah National Park. Said another way, TdS is two days, 220-miles, 20,000 feet of climbing, and too much fun. Even though TdS has a nice three-letter acronym, it’s much more casual than you would think. Roads are not closed, there are no aid stations, and there are certainly no t-shirts. You are either climbing or descending for 98% of the distance. The hills themselves are mostly between two and three miles in length. Except, of course, for the initial climb, which is more like six miles, just to get things started properly. SAG support for Tour de Skyline is solely there to transport clean clothes from Front Royal to Waynesboro and dirty clothes from Waynesboro to Front Royal. You MUST approach this ride as if it was a self-supported journey with valet parking for your laundry. SAG supported water stops at (33mi) Panorama (Thornton Gap) and Loft Mountain(80mi). SAGs will stop at mile 51 for lunch (Big Meadows).
Ride is limited to 50 participants – Visit the Facebook page for complete ride information.
