Wheel Fun

More than 700 cyclists are expected to descend in and around Staunton, October 20 through 22, for the 27th annual Shenandoah Fall Foliage Bike Festival. Saturday and Sun-day, riders can choose among nine supported routes—from an easy family loop to a hilly century—that wind past farms, Civil War battle-fields, and town and mountain views. The $90 adult registration includes street parties both Friday and Saturday, lunch on Saturday, and brunch on Sunday.
