From the Promoter:
The Alpine Loop Gran Fondo is a high mountain adventure route created by pro rider Jeremiah Bishop. It goes over the mountains that divide Virginia from its Wild West Virginia cousin! The Longest Alpine loop features steep mixed terrain from good pavement, to intense dirt sand and bedrock on the evil 14 mile “dark side” climb, to the highest point in Northern Virginia. A total of 11,000 feet of climbing.
The Finish line festival features craft beer music food and fun for the whole family!
Shorter paved options are available as well.
