National Bike Travel weekend is 02-04 Jun 17 and I want to do something to support it. Info on this national event is at
I have gotten permission to have a Bike Campers weekend at the local Izaak Walton League (IWL). There is primitive camping available at the IWL (potable water and a port-a-potty, bring your own TP) and we have use of the main pavilion.
The location of IWL is at:
12400 Herndon Road , Spotsylvania, Virginia 22553
Directions to IWLA.pdf
This is a semi organized, self-contained event and is limited to 25 camper-bikers. I plan on setting up camp on Friday evening and man the gate to check in camping guests on Saturday from Noon to 6 pm. (Times can vary to suit participants) I will be required to stay at IWL as long as I have guests on the property, so I will not be leading any bike rides, but FCC will allow us to run an organized club ride (with sign-in sheet) provided a ride leader is available.
Registered participants (guests) are welcome to bike in from home, self-contained, for the weekend of camping. Or, they can arrive in a car with camping gear, food and their bikes and use IWL as a base camp to ride the back roads. (Wilderness Battlefield exhibit and Chancellorsville Battlefield visitor center are within easy biking distance.)
So is this a ride or a social event? Both, it is a (free) weekend of camping and biking away from home complete with a campfire (designated pit) by the lake.
