This year, we'll be returning to two of our favourite locations: Lexington, Virginia and Strasburg, Pennsylvania. This trip is a great way to kick start your cycling season cycling on quiet paved roads. The terrain ranges from small towns, farms, horse ranches on palatial estates, to forest and are considered by many to be some of the best cycling available in North America. This trip offers a range of cycling options for the recreational cyclist to the more hard core. You will be able to select rides each day of 40 km on rolling terrain to 150 km in the Blue Ridge mountains. History buffs will appreciate the rich military history of Lexington. Strasburg is located in the center of Amish country and, here, we'll have very unique accommodations - The Red Caboose Motel, where every room is its very own caboose.

The Tour is limited to 24 participants so be sure to book your reservation early - in the past this tour has filled quickly. Accommodation has been booked on a shared basis (two people per room). Full OBC membership is required. Each day you will be provided with maps, cue sheets, GPS files and company to explore the beautiful scenery around these two towns. 

Itinerary: This year's trip covers a total of eight (8) nights, split between Lexington, VA and Strasburg, PA. The hotels are about 4 hours apart which means that seven days are available for riding.
