Between the Waters Bike Tour - Wachapreague, VA

PLEASE NOTE: the organizers of this ride have announced that all bike routes are going to be closed at 2pm due to the storm.  They are opening the rides early to help permit you to complete the ride. Please check their website for details.  (but also note that rain is projected to start by 7am.)  Hopefully we can catch this one next year.

 

 

Explore the Eastern Shore of Virginia this fall when the Between the Waters Bike Tour begins in the historic, waterfront town of Wachapreague in Accomack County.  This event, sponsored by Citizens for a Better Eastern Shore (CBES), is held on Saturday, October 27, 2012 and winds through interesting historic towns and communities and along back roads to scenic rest stops that overlook the Atlantic seaside and the Chesapeake Bay.  With very little vehicle traffic, the ride is sure to be relaxed and peaceful as well as easygoing because of its flat terrain.

The Between the Waters Bike Tour promises water views on both sides of the Delmarva peninsula through the gracious hospitality of private homeowners who allow us to use their properties for the rest stops along the route.  Each rest stop will have liquids, light snacks and a toilet.  Stops will be open on a published schedule found on your cue sheet.  If you reach a stop before or after its scheduled operating time, service may not be available.  Lunch will be available on each route.

The topography on the Shore is very flat--NO hills--with the highest point at only 42 feet.  All public roads are paved but a good bit of the mileage is asphault and the remaining mileage (60+%) is tar and chip.  The asphault rolls very smoothly, but the tar and chips rolls a bit more roughly.  The roads are very rural with little traffic as we do not usually ride on US Rte. 13.
