    September 5-7

    9th Annual Skyline Drive Weekend

    Join us for a weekend of stunning views and challenging climbs on the beautiful Skyline Drive.  We will use Big Meadows Campground (MP51) as a base camp, and you can cycle as little or as much as you like.  Scheduled rides will include a 60-mile (round trip) ride beginning at 8 a.m. on Saturday from Big Meadows to Luray and back (with a great lunch stop at Artisan’s Grill in Luray).  Optional shorter rides on Friday afternoon and Sunday morning are planned as well.

    Big Meadows is the premier campground on the Skyline Drive and features hot showers, visitor center, hiking trails, large camp store & café, and a nice restaurant in the lodge.  No SAG support.  The campground may fill up, so making a reservation is a good idea.  I have already reserved site A61 Note that there is a $15 fee for cars on the Skyline Drive (valid for 7 days) and $8.00 for bicycles (also covered by a car pass).  Dining options include eating at restaurants at Big Meadows (my choice) or cooking in camp.

    TBA Eastern Shore Getaway
    September 26-28, 2014

    The 37th Annual Eastern Shore Getaway Weekend will take place September 26-28, 2014.  This is a weekend at Chincoteague Island of casual cycling on flat roads, dining in Island restaurants and social camaraderie.

    Our accommodations will be at the Best Western Chincoteague at a group rate of $85.99.  They are holding 15 rooms on a first-come, first-served basis.  The rate will apply to reservations made on or before August 22 with a 72-hour cancellation.  Make your own reservations by calling 757-336-6557 and mention you are with TBA.  Then let us know so we can add you to our list.

    The weekend’s schedule starts on Friday evening when groups form up to find dinner.  Saturday morning, we drive to Snow Hill and bike to Berlin, MD (think Julia Roberts in Runaway Bride) 40+ miles with cue sheets and SAG.  Saturday evening we bring goodies to share at our Wine and Cheese in motel lobby; dinner afterward or just go to the Creamery for home-made ice cream.  Sunday morning – motel breakfast followed by a bike tour of Assateague Island looking for the wild ponies and maybe a tour of the lighthouse.  Bus tours are also available into restricted area at 10:00 a.m. for $12.00.  Call 757-336-3696.

    This weekend is a great social event of meeting, greeting, eating, and bicycling, and most importantly - the riding is at whatever your pace or level can handle.  Questions – call Fran and Fred Adams at 757-467-2775 or email Bikalot@verizon.net.
