Tour de Willowmere (A Century Streak century ride)


NOTE:  THIS CENTURY IS UNSUPPORTED AND NOT SUITABLE FOR THE INEXPERIENCED OR CASUAL RIDER.  THE FULLY SUPPORTED 4 JULY CENTURY IS RECOMMENDED FOR THOSE RIDERS. 

 

Start:  7:30 am

 

This 100 mile course will take us on some lesser traveled roads to the west of Route 15/29 between Culpeper and Warranton VA.  With a total elevation gain of 4500' the route obviously has some rolling hills as well as some short steeper ones, generally in the first 70 miles. The last 30 miles will be on well known roads from our local FCC rides.

 

There are stores at the 37 and 75 mile point where water and food can be purchased.  We usually stop in a shady area at the mid point as well.  With the two stores pretty far apart, each rider should come well prepared with food, nourishment and liquids and be self sufficient. Everyone who rides this course really enjoys it and with the start at Willowmere this time, the sting has been taken out of the final miles...instead we will climb out of Abel Reservoir in the first 5 miles after our start.

 

Contact the ride leader with any questions.  This is not a no drop ride so each rider must be self sufficient.
