Written Directions

The road starts in Aldie, VA at route 50 and ends in Bluemont, VA near route 7. Route 9 is also near the end of this route as well.

Scenery

This is a nice short ride for beginners and experienced riders alike. This pike take the rider through some rolling hills and beautiful farmland.

Drive Enjoyment

The road is relatively straight with a few sweeping turns which makes this a good beginners road.

Tourism Opportunities

I'm ranking this as "great" because of its immediate vicinity to the Middleburg rides. There are also a few general stores to stop at along the way and a great little store in Bluemont. The Blueridge Mountain Road ride is very close to the Bluemont side of this ride. There are also a few small wineries near Bluemont and Aldie as well.

I agree with the comments about the hairpin, "Going South 1/3 of a mile from Route 7, you HAVE to take the hairpin turn on the extreme outside going very slowly in order to make that turn. There is 5 mph sign but it gives you almost no warning. Use extreme caution when approaching this turn!

Definitely a nice beginner Route, be careful with the sharp turn at the northern end if you continue, that's where i had my first and only drop. At the southern end you should head East on 50 go through the 3 roundabouts and look for Hammerdown BBQ on your right 10/10 BBQ there

I went on this road with another rider based on these great reviews. As of 3-21-15, the road is littered in potholes...Worse than DC. At points, I was going 5mph weaving around some of the craters. The road needs serious repair, but the scenery is still great when everything blooms.
