Note: This route has recently changed.
Description: A combination of the Somerset-Barboursville and Orange-Gordonsville routes, this is a fun way to do a metric century without a lot of serious climbing. The route passes Montpelier (the home of James and Dolly Madison) and loops around through the towns of Orange and Gordonsville before heading back through Barboursville to Stony Point. The terrain is mostly open and gently rolling, with a modest climb on the way out of Gordonsville.
