On September 29th, 2018, join us for the Land Trust of Virginia’s (LTV) 2nd Annual “Tour de Conservation Easement” Bicycle Event. Choose either the 20-mile or 62-mile (32/100 Km) gravel road routes through the beautiful Virginia countryside, much of which is protected by Conservation Easements. The routes take cyclists through Loudoun and Fauquier Counties, providing beautiful views of scenic back roads and rolling farms. The 62-mile ride consists of 29 miles of gravel roads and 33 miles paved.
What makes our ride special?
The routes will include traversing several beautiful private properties that you would not otherwise have access to. The 62-mile/100km route includes a ½-mile King/Queen of the Mountain climb with an average of a 7.8% grade. Plus, great food and drinks at the finish.
Your participation and generous support enables LTV to achieve our mission: the conservation of open space that protects our natural resources, valuable agricultural, and/or historic places. Help us protect the Virginia we all love, for generations to come!
Distances: 20 miles (32K) and 62 miles (100km)
Rest stops are provided on the 62 mile route at miles (approximate) 23, 31, and 49.
