‘Bike The Valley’ Website Launched

Thanh -- December 18th, 2008

“With the growing popularity of bicycling, citizens and tourists are looking for safe and convenient roads to bike. Now the website www.bikethevalley.org offers an online resource assembled by riders of the area to help you choose your route whatever your reason for riding the roads of the beautiful Shenandoah Valley.

The site is a product of the Central Shenandoah Planning District Commission’s (CSPDC) Bike Pedestrian Committee, an advocacy group with representatives from 10 local jurisdictions. The committee has raised funds through state grants, local government contributions, bicycle clubs and recreation departments, to develop a bicycle plan and raise awareness about bicycling and walking issues. The website has downloadable maps and directions for over 40 on-road bicycle routes of varying length and difficulty. Also on the site are links to local bicycle clubs and shops, safety tips and rules of the road, and bicycle tours and events. Go to www.bikethevalley.org or contact Bonnie Riedesel at CSPDC, (540) 885-5174, bonnie@cspdc.org.”

    Nice resource – I like the overview map (though I doubt I’ll be going on long-distance rides anytime soon). Looking forward to trying to bike more in the spring!
