Hopewell Church Ride

Location:  12018 Guinea Dr, Woodford, VA 22580

Come out and ride with us from our newest starting point, Hopewell Methodist Church in Woodford, Va. Situated in a rural area just over the Spotsylvania County line, Hopewell allows us to branch out in multiple directions on safe, scenic, country roads.  There are 20, 35, 36, 42, 50 and 60 mile options that can accommodate most riders. April through November, we  break into multiple groups based on rider speed and distances. Slower groups generally go 20 to 36 miles at a 14-15mph pace, while faster riders opt for longer distances of at least 40 miles at a 16-18 mph pace. 

During the normal riding season, Saturday rides feature the official No-Drop ride; however, all groups keep an eye out for newer riders and try to wait at intersections for anyone who is close behind.  Look forward to riding with you!

Markings: The assorted routes are marked with colored arrows:

20-Mile route - Blue Arrows

32-Mile route - Green Arrows

40-Mile route - Yellow Arrows

50-Mile route - Red Arrows

No Drop Option:  The No Drop ride is an excellent way to introduce new cyclists to the joys of road cycling or allow experienced riders a casual ride with friends. The ride can be as slow or as fast as you are comfortable pedaling.  Need to walk up a hill?  No problem.  Need to stop and catch your breath?  No problem. Forget thinking “I’m too slow for a bike club”.  The No Drop ride will ensure that all riders remain together and support each other.  Many of our riders started out in the No Drop group and have moved on to longer and faster distances.   While the No Drop option is not normally available during the winter riding season, contact the scheduled Ride Leader if you are interested in a No Drop ride.
