The Ride : Detail
******************
For your riding pleasure NoVA CBG presents the Peach Tree Loop.

Please note that this is a solid MEDIUM ride because this route has "rolling hills" and is a GARMIN / CUE SHEET ride so you'll need to be comfortable reading a cue sheet (w/odometer) or a Garmin or a Smartphone Route App.

On the bright side, this is a "no drop" ride so if you have always wanted to try riding a hillier ride this is the one to do as it is only 28(ish) miles total.

The first hill is "right out of the gate" and then the rest are rolling. The first half of the ride is all about the "rolling hills" with an elevation increase from 200 to 550 ft. The second half of the ride is still about the "rolling hills" but we are coming down from our high point so mainly downhill back to our starting point.

There will be two "regrouping" stops:

1) @ 9.5mm
