Here's a challenging ride that's half rural, half Northern Virginia suburban.
Moderately hilly to hilly. Take a spin and judge for yourself.
Part of the route goes past the old Lorton Penitentiary in the latter half.
Lunch afterwards at a nearby eatery.
Call in the event of questionable weather. Check the web site for cancellation information or call an hour before the ride start.
