Batesville – Taylor Creek – Ennis Mtn (29 / 40, A / B, H)

Sat Jun 22 @ 8:00 am

From the Crossroads Store, this moderately hilly ride heads northwest to Batesville then southwest on Craigs Store Road. The next stretch is an out-and-back along Taylor Creek for 5 miles to the scenic town of Heards. The route retraces its steps back to Ennis Mountain Road for a moderate, shady climb over Ennis Mountain to Batesville Road, then back to Batesville and the Crossroads Store.  The short route excludes the out-and-back along Taylor Creek.

Stores: Mile 0 and 29 / 40 (Crossroads); mile 5 and 24/ 35 (Batesville; opens 10 AM, 9 AM Saturday).

  1. Jeff & I plan to start from Crozet at 7:30 & meet the group as it goes thru Batesville.

  2. Pace and I will do the Batesville, Taylors Creek, 29 miles. We’ll be starting at 7 am to beat the heat.

  3. I am planning to be there with a friend that wants to join the club. Aiming to do the long route. Depending on how legs are doing.

  4. I’m planning on coming and will do one of the shorter options. It’s going to be too hot for me by 10AM.

NOTE:  We officially cancel rides only if we consider conditions to be unsafe (high winds, ice/snow, etc.).  Otherwise rides take place whether or not people comment about attending.  Each member should make their own decision about riding based on the forecast.

Important Reminder

Be sure to have the route on your phone or bike computer, and/or have a map or cue sheet.

Ride Classification

For details on how group rides are categorized, check out the Ride Classification guidelines.

Requirements For Riders

All riders are required to have a helmet; a taillight, Road ID and a rear-view mirror is strongly recommended.  You are also expected to have adequate fluids and a road-worthy bicycle in good repair.  Many rides, but not all, will include the opportunity to stop at a store to replenish supplies.

You should be prepared to fix a flat tire and perform other minor repairs on the roadside.  If you are new to cycling and are not comfortable with these procedures, don’t let that stop you.  However, you might want to talk to a more experienced member before the ride so the group is prepared to help if necessary.

Safety On The Road

The club considers safety to be our very highest priority.  Please review the information on the Safety Page before you join us for a ride.

We hope that you will find this site helpful; your questions and comments are welcomed.


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.
