Off the Eaten Path at Showalter's Orchard & Greenhouse - October 1, 2016

Join us for a pleasantly challenging group ride (25 & 50 mile options) on the rolling country roads around picturesque Broadway/Timberville area, at the base of the Appalachian mountains. The rides begin promptly at 2:00PM (50 mile) and 4:00PM (25 mile) from Showalter's Orchard, and return to the orchard for a farm table supper set on a hill amidst the apple trees overlooking the rolling hills below.

The meal will feature fresh ingredients straight off the farm, sourced from Showalter's as well as other farms and producers in the Broadway/Timberville area. Old Hill Hard Cider is made on the premises and will be available for purchase with meal.

For more information or to register, visit the website or Facebook event page. Online registration closes Thursday, September 29th at 11:59PM - day-of registration is not available due to the nature of the event.


Shenandoah Mountain Bike Festival - October 7-9, 2016

The Shenandoah Mountain Bike Festival is held at the beautiful Stokesville Campground, a spectacular venue with mountains as a backdrop and riding right out of the gate. The trail and road riding around Stokesville and in the George Washington National Forest is beautiful and very challenging.

An important component of the Festival is giving back to the trails of the National Forest. The two trail work sessions over the weekend have become the largest volunteer trail work projects in the North River Ranger District.

Fall Foliage Bike Festival - October 14-16, 2016

Enjoy the scenic heart of Virginia's Shenandoah Valley as you join us for the 26th Annual Fall Foliage Bike Festival. A perennial favorite with cyclists up and down the Mid-Atlantic states and beyond, the Fall Foliage Bike Festival offers a full weekend of riding, sightseeing, and warm Virginia hospitality. Perfectly suited for a wide range of cyclists: from motivated century riders to families with young children (and all levels in between), we offer well-marked courses with maps and cue sheets, plentiful rest stops with abundant snacks, a hearty lunch on Saturday and a brunch on Sunday, evening entertainment, and discounts to local attractions. For the past few years, this ride has annually attracted over 700 cyclists. We hope to see you as we celebrate our 26th year!
