Nelson – Amherst (36 / 44 / 58, A/B, H)

Sat Nov 4 @ 10:00 am

A bit far from Charlottesville, this ride is well worth the drive. The terrain is varied, including flatter, open stretches as well as hilly, wooded sections. Enjoy the great mountain views.

NOTE: Do not park in the Health Department parking lot.  Park in the employee parking lot off of Arrington Rd.

Stores:  Mile 0 (Colleen); mile 10 (Lowesville); mile 21 (medium & long route); mile 25 (long route); mile 23/32/46 (all routes)

Alerts:  All routes include 0.7 miles on US 29, a 4-lane road with high-speed traffic but with a good shoulder. Use caution.

  1. Chris and I will be there on the tandem, probably doing the 44 mile route.
    Please do not park in the medical center parking lot. Use the parking lot at the corner of Rt 29 and Arrington Rd.

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.
