Fontaine Rider’s Choice (34 / 39 /47, B, MH / H / H)

July 1 @ 8:00 am

These three routes start together from the Fontaine Research Park, leave town on Old Lynchburg Road, and stay together for the first 18 miles. The short route returns fairly directly via Old Lynchburg Road back to Fontaine. The other two routes add extra miles and extra climbs before returning via US 250 and through campus.

Stores: Mile 16 (Crossroads Store)

Alerts: There are steep, somewhat technical descents at mile 22 (long route; possible gravel), on Dry Bridge Road (mile 27/34; medium and long routes), and on Tilman Road (mile 28/36; medium and long routes).

  1. The Cville tandem plans to ride the middle distance, assuming air quality doesn’t suck.

  2. I will be there. After last week I think I am not ready for the longer routes yet. I will be doing the short one.
    See you guys there.

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.
