200-Mile West Virginia Twisties Tour + ADD NEW ROUTE
- Trip Toolbox
I started in Wheeling and followed Rt88 south to 250 south all the way to Fairmont. Then on to 19 south to 119/33 south west.
There are a few things here and there to look at but this ride is mostly about the challenge of the road. However you do get to see some small towns and a couple of nice vista style views.
Over all this route was in good shape. Some of it was even new pavement. However you do always have to watch for rough corners or corners with stones. I took Rt 88 south from Wheeling to rt 250 south to Fairmont. From there I took 19 south to 119/33 south west. The route had a good mix of tight switch backs, small 90 degree plus turns, long sweepers and a little back and forth from right to left. It will keep you on your toes the whole way. Not to mention that the majority of the time the speed limit is 55.
There are many blind corners on this route. Ride during the day. On some of the fun parts turn around and go back through. Its a blast.
You pass through many small communities. The larger towns have everything you need. There are even a few small multi service stations that you can fill up with gas and have an ice-cream for a brake.
