This modestly hilly ride covers much of the Earlysville area. The medium and long routes include a nice climb up Bacon Hollow, which is famous for its moonshine operations during the Prohibition era (a local winery produces a wine called Bacon Hollow Revenuers’ Select White).
Stores: Mile 25 / 25 (Dyke)
Alerts: The out and back section on the medium (35 mile) and long (42 mile) routes up Bacon Hollow Road (mile 15 to 21) is well-known for dogs that sometimes get out in the road. Stay alert.

Start times are based on seasonal averages. Because of the inability to ensure everyone is informed of a last-minute change, scheduled rides will not change based on predicted weather and temperature. Also, club rides generally will not show as “canceled” on the calendar. All riders have their personal thresholds for temperature, wind, and moisture, and are expected to use their best judgment about whether to ride on a given day. CBC encourages all members to exercise caution. If in doubt, please use the comment section on the ride calendar page to communicate with other potentially interested riders.
