We are proud to announce the second annual Tour de Fall Line will be held on September 12, 2015. TdFL has 14, 28, and 50 mile mountain bike courses throughout Richmond.
The full course map is here – https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/0/viewer?mid=ztdge_Ufwz38.k81NxSPoH3Uk
The 14 mile is a beginner friendly course traversing the east end on both the North and South sides of the river. This will take you to the best viewing spot for UCI 2015 on Libbie Hill. You will traverse through the nooks and crannies of Church Hill Parks and end up with a fun ride down Richmond’s best sledding location: Powhattan Hill. Back on the South side of the river, you will experience the newly finished Poop Loop (Ancarrow’s East). There are 4 new bridges on the loop this year, which adds a new section.
The 28 mile loop does the beginner section and the legendary JRPS trails including Buttermilk, Forest Hill Park, North Bank, and Dogwood Dell. These are immediate to advanced trails and some of the city’s best.
The 50 mile loop takes you to some roads less travelled. This is the park-to-park-to-park ride which shows you how to connect Pony Pasture, Powhite, and Larus Park back to the main system. This is the ride for you if you want to tick off everything in the city.
We will have aid stations throughout the course with water, nutrition, and mechanical help.
We will have Lee’s Fried Chicken and are working on a vegetarian option for the after-race. We also have beer from Stone, Ardent, and are working on a few others.
This is our ride to come hang with friends. You are welcome to crush it, but we want you to have fun more than anything.
Thanks to all the donations and volunteer hours, Richmond is now a Bronze level IMBA Ride Center and we can’t do it without you. So come out and enjoy a nice, long ride on a September day.
