Swift Run Gap – Skyland (48, B & C, VH)

August 6 @ 8:00 am

A truly extraordinary ride, this route climbs through the Shenandoah National Park on the Skyline Drive from the Swift Run Gap entrance for 24 miles before turning around at the Skyland Wayside and heading back. Skyland is the highest point on the Skyline Drive; you are guaranteed to get your fill of scenic mountaintop overlooks. Don’t miss it.

Saturday rides now include a C group ride.  We encourage our C riders to come out and join us.

    Hope to be there. May have to cut it a bit short, too.

    Planning to be there, assuming weather is fine. Maybe not for the whole 48 m route …

      Just inside the entrance, along the side of the road. Look for other CBC’ers.

NOTE: As of 01/01/2022, we have become a member-supported club.  We encourage all of our cycling friends to join us.  For new riders, our club insurance covers non-members of the club for their first ride only.  Thanks.

We are planning additional rides each week, so stay tuned!  If you are interested in helping to organize a group ride for the Club, please contact us!

For details on how group rides are categorized, check out the Ride Classification guidelines.

Requirements For Riders

All riders are required to have a helmet; a tail light, Road ID and a rear-view mirror is strongly recommended.  You are also expected to have adequate fluids and a road-worthy bicycle in good repair.  Many rides, but not all, will include the opportunity to stop at a store to replenish supplies.

You should be prepared to fix a flat tire and perform other minor repairs on the road side.  If you are new to cycling and are not comfortable with these procedures, don’t let that stop you.  However, you might want to talk to a more experienced member before the ride so the group is prepared to help if necessary.

Safety On The Road

The club considers safety to be our very highest priority.  Please review the information on the Safety Page before you join us for a ride.

We hope that you will find this site helpful; your questions and comments are welcomed.
