2019-08-10 08:30:00 2019-08-10 08:30:00 America/New_York Upper Loudoun Wanderer Please join me on one of my favorite Virginia rides. We start at the high school in Leesburg, but quickly head out to the countryside. I have provided a choice of 3 routes. All go through Waterford, Lovettsville, Hillsboro, and Purcellville. All go mainly on rolling hills through winery and horse country. We will pass through the site of a minor Civil War battle (Waterford) and even see a Monarch butterfly waystation. As a rule, the longer the distance of the 3 rides, the hillier the terrain, and the less time spent on the W&OD Trail. The main rest stop will be the 7-11 in Lovettsville, but last I checked there is a new bakery across the street from Trails End, where the W&OD starts in Purcellville. There are no rest rooms at the start, but there is a shopping center nearby with a Roy Rogers and a Safeway. I will be leading the ride from the middle. Please print out a copy of the cue sheet before you arrive. If the weather is bad I will cancel by 6 am on Saturday. Loudoun County High School (LOU)
