The Allegheny Mountains Loop is a 400-mile bicycle route created and mapped by the Adventure Cycling Association.
The route begins and ends at Virginia Tech’s War Memorial Chapel in Blacksburg, VA.
A “Grand Depart” (i.e. mass start) of Individual Time Trials is proposed each year on the last Friday in APRIL at 6:00am (local time).
The AML_400 is a challenge based on one simple idea…
Complete the 400-mile AML in a clock-wise direction pedaling north on the western half of the loop and southbound on the eastern half of the route as fast as possible.
IMPORTANT: This “challenge” INCLUDES climbing the “Ridge Alternate” and the “Mountain Lake Cutoff” on the southbound portion of the route which are considered OPTIONAL segments on ACA maps.
