Overview

Explore some of the prettiest roads in the Valley! This route passes through stunning Chapel Falls, quaint streams and expansive reservoirs. Bring plenty of water to refresh yourself as we climb more than 2,000 feet over our 31 mile ride. The shady country roads connect timeless towns such as Ashfield and Conway, offering two coffee shop stops for snacks, bathrooms and quick refreshments. This ride is for intermediate riders and those who are training as there are hills (uphill and downhill!) throughout the route, right up until the last few miles of the ride. We will ride at an average speed of 12-14 mph.
