This page includes a selection of gravel road routes in the region, with links to maps, cue sheets, and directions to the starting points. The Charlottesville Bicycle Club does not sponsor gravel rides; these routes are included here for your information.
Roads: All routes listed here have a mixture of unpaved and paved roads. With very few exceptions, all are official state roads. Very occasionally, private roads are used as part of a route where there is a historical understanding that cyclists may use them (still, take this with a grain of salt and always be sensitive to their private nature). Please do not use any other private roads without permission of the owners.
The quality of the gravel sections may vary greatly, from fairly well-packed with few potholes to surfaces that aren’t much better than a fire trail.
