VA Fall Foliage Ride

Ride departs from Bagel City. Fall is a beautiful time to enjoy the Virginia National Forest's scenic byways. When the days are clear and sunny, there is an almost irresistible lure to enjoy the outdoors. This type of weather provides for a spectacular show of autumn colors in the national forests. Virginia is filled with picturesque scenes and towering mountains that show off fall foliage in an amazing way.

Fall is one of the most beautiful times of year in Virginia, and traveling throughout the state during this season can reveal an abundance of color. So, you're interested in seeing some of the beauty that is Virginia during Fall Foliage season? But you don't want to fight the traffic that clogs some of the best-known places, such as Skyline Drive? Fill your eyes with wide swatches of vibrant yellows, reds and oranges . . . and, because this ride is "off the beaten path," you'll be able to enjoy a leisurely trip without the hassles of a lot of traffic on the road or large crowds at stops along the way. Length of ride: 250 total miles, 25 highway. 3 stops are planned. (SY)
