Come Experience riding the Blue Ridge Parkway ...
Beacon Credit Union and the YMCA invite YOU to join your friends and fellow cyclists in the breathtaking Blue Ridge Mountains of Central Virginia on Sunday, May 18 for the fifth annual Storming of Thunder Ridge road ride.
This well-supported event offers camaraderie and challenge for every rider’s ability with a choice of 27, 45, 75 and 100 mile routes as you ride at your own pace along safe and scenic well-marked country roads. Both the 27 & 45 miler routes follow a course of rolling hills and meandering back roads. A longer 75 mile route tests rider stamina with a 13 mile ascent to Apple Orchard Mountain, the highest peak of the Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia. For an epic day in the saddle, the 100 mile route boasts over 9000 feet of climbing.
Your registration helps fund the Community Support Campaign of the YMCA of Central Virginia. Included are cue sheets, fully stocked rest stops, mechanical support and monitoring of riders along the course.
