Written DirectionsRide begins in Bristow near the intersection of 28 and 619. Ends at 619 and route 1.
SceneryThis road is rather nondescript after about the half way point. The last 1/3 takes you thru some training areas of Quantico Marine Corp Base.
Drive EnjoymentThis is a fun one to ride with a good mix of hills, good tight and sweeping turns.
Tourism OpportunitiesThere are a few general stores to stop at during the ride. You can also ride onto Quantico Marine Base and visit Q-town (no military ID required, only VA drivers license) but if you do you may be asked to produce a reflective vest. The Marines also may require full protective equipment and an MSF card. Not sure about visitors. At any rate, they only time you need to worry about that is if you reach the end of 619 and cross over Route 1 and pass thru the gate.
I ride a Vulcan S (650 cc) - - I'm a noob, only been riding since my divorce a couple years ago.
