Weekend Picks: Wilderness Road Ride, New River Valley, Virginia

The 23rd Annual Wilderness Road Ride takes place Saturday May 24.

This awesome event is a scenic and historical adventure through southwest Virginia’s beautiful New River Valley.

The ride follows part of Daniel Boone’s Wilderness Road. This year will feature a kids bike rodeo and fun ride in the park.

It’s a ride the whole family can enjoy, with something for everyone— 4 routes to choose from ranging from a 29 mile relaxed journey for novices, to a 79-mile challenge for the fittest cyclist.

All routes start and finish in Radford, at the Dedmon Center and Bisset Park. Non-riders can enjoy Bisset Park, the New River, and downtown Radford, while their families and friends are out riding.

Fully supported aid stations will be positioned at regular intervals along the course and the start/finish location. Aid stations will be supplied with Heed Hammer Nutrition fuel, as well as water and plenty of other snacks.
