Hebron Valley – Prince Michel Start
2018-08-01 @ 6:00 pm - 8:21 pm
One of our favorite starting locations, Prince Michel Winery and with that come a slightly revised route.
The ride rolls out of the parking lot onto James City Rd and finds its way onto our old route on Ridgeview Rd. Eventually we make our way onto Novum Rd. As Novum Rd turns west the rollers start with each successive hill getting a little steeper. As Novum Rd becomes Arrington Mtn Rd, the road begins to climb. Up you go for about 1.5 miles, and while it never gets really steep this longer climb is sure to wear on your legs. Down the backside (be careful of the stop sign and busy street crossing of Hoover Rd) you roll onto Towles Rd. At the end you make a left onto one of the most scenic roads in Madison County, Hebron Valley Rd. As you approach the turn onto Hebron Church Rd, be sure to “moo” at the cows. With a left onto Blue Ridge Tpke you head up the steep leg crusher into the Town of Madison. You roll out of Madison, past the Pig N’ Steak and onto Oak Park Rd. As you head eastward the hills become relentless as you proceed onto Fords Shop Rd and Leon Road. But save your legs, the last few miles you’re greeted with the steepest hills on the route.
