Shenandoah Valley Ride – June 17 – 20, 2016

Two members are planning a 4 day (3 night) ride in the Shenandoah Valley June 17-20. About 35 to 40 miles per day at a 10 to 12 mph pace. We’ll be staying in motels, no camping. This ride is a low intensity tour. Neither of us have cycled the Valley before, but we are up for the trip. The plan is to leave Strasburg, Va Friday morning, cycle down the valley as far as Staunton, turn around and come back. We would be staying overnight in New Market and Staunton. My truck can hold two more bikes, but I do not have room for another passenger. If you think you would like to join us contact me at: stuartbonning@hotmail.com, phone 410-374-4416. Stuart Bonning
