Spring to Virginia April 12th - 20th

Here is your excuse to keep in shape over the winter months.  This trip offers a range of cycling options for the recreational cyclist to the most hard core.  You will be able to select rides each day of 20 km on rolling terrain to 150 km in the mountains, a little something for everyone.  We have selected two hotels in the centre of small historic towns of Lexington VA and Gettysburg PA, four (4) nights at each hotel.  Each day you will be provided with maps, cue sheets and company to explore the beautiful scenery around these two towns.

This is a great way to kick start your cycling season cycling on quiet paved roads where motorist are friendly to cyclists and there is nothing to worry about except whether or not you will run out of memory space in your camera.  The terrain ranges from small towns, farms, horse ranches on palatial estates, to forest and are consider by many to be some of the best cycling available in North America. Gettysburg is the location of one of the major battles of the American civil war, the battle grounds have been maintained in much the same condition as the day of the battle. There are various tours available of the grounds.
