Distance: 35 miles
Climbing: 70 feet per mile
Description: This fairly short, only modestly hilly ride covers much of the Earlysville area. It includes a nice climb up Bacon Hollow, which is famous for its moonshine operations during the Prohibition era (a local winery produces a wine called Bacon Hollow Revenuers’ Select White). Several shortcuts are available (see map) as is an optional extra loop that adds 7 miles.
Stores: Mile 10 (uncertain hours)
Alerts: The out and back section up Bacon Hollow Road (mile 15 to 21) is well-known for dogs that sometimes get out in the road. Stay alert.
