September 12-16, 2015
Cycling enthusiasts from around the world are coming to visit Virginia to experience the UCI World Cycling Championships in September 2015. Virginia has something special to offer for those that love bicycling.
In honor of this once-in-a-lifetime occasion, the Bike Virginia organization, a 28 year old bike touring non-profit, has created an exclusive bike tour experience, Velo Virginia. This unique bike tour event will show off some of Virginia’s very best cycling in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley and Blue Ridge Mountains.
Riders will enjoy 4 days of cycling on fully supported and hand-selected bike routes hosted by Virginia’s leading bike tour organization. Ride with our special guest, Pro Road Racer and US Cycling Champion, Timmy Dugan.
Come see why Virginia has captured the hearts of cyclists from across the globe!
Route choices will include some of Virginia's most challenging climbs like Vesuvius Mountain on US Bike Route 76. Climb the beast and enjoy the spoils of victory as you reach the Blue Ridge Parkway overlooking some of the state's best views. Other routes will offer moderate challenge but still have rewarding beauty and fun downhills.
