Nelson – Amherst (58, B & C, H)
November 5 @ 10:00 am
A bit far from Charlottesville, this ride is well worth the drive. The terrain is varied, including flatter, open stretches as well as hilly, wooded sections. Enjoy the great mountain views.
Saturday rides now include a C group ride. We encourage our C riders to come out and join us.
There are also options for shorter 36 and 44 mile routes.
* Please indicate you will attend by leaving a comment (with your ride class) below. Also, please check the ride comments the day of the ride if the weather is iffy.
Well, the forecast did improve overnight! We are planning on riding today, doing the 44 mile route. We’ll probably be in the low B range for pace, but we might be a little slower. Hope to see others there!
I plan to B there.
There is still a decent chance of showers tomorrow morning, so we’re going to make a decision in the morning and post another comment then.
As a reminder, please don’t park by the Blue Ridge Medical Center. Park in the employee parking lot off of Arrington Rd.
What time tomorrow would a cancellation be made?
Hey Mark, it takes a forecast where we think riding would be unsafe for us to officially cancel a ride. Some people are comfortable riding with a higher percentage chance of rain than others, so we let riders make their own decision about whether they want to ride or not. I hope the forecast changes for the better overnight, because this is a nice ride!
Planning on riding if I can find accommodations. UVA has a home football game that Saturday so Charlottesville is booked up. I’ve done Nelson-Amber twice and it’s a beautiful ride. Well worth riding again. Riding B pace🤞
