VDOT introduces new state biking map

Monday, Oct. 8 | By Staff
Northern Virginia is highlighted in VDOT's new map of bike trails in the commonwealth.
Whether you're a seasoned rider or a new fan of cycling, the Commonwealth of Virginia's Department of Transportation has created a new map that can be your gateway to a world of new experiences.

The map features something here for everyone:

• The commonwealth's 838 miles of United States Bicycle Routes 1 and 76

• The Virginia Capital Trail, connecting the colonial capital of Williamsburg with the modern capital of Richmond

• Numerous locations for off-road mountain bike rides

• A range of facilities suitable for beginners and families with young children.

The urban trails network of Northern Virginia is here, and the wild and challenging Heart of Appalachia Bike Route – 128 miles of paved and unpaved roads through remote, mountainous southwest Virginia.

Bicycling in Virginia focuses on routes and information of most interest to cyclists. The map includes setting, terrain, elevation and surface conditions.

Inset enlargements of selected locations give details for parking and other facilities. The colored areas of the map show Virginia’s state and national parks and tourism regions, making it easy to find more information about food, lodging and other attractions.

The goal of the new map is to promote the beautiful countryside of commonwealth, and encourage visits to the natural and cultural attractions, to ride for transportation, health, and fun and to reduce traffic congestion and air pollution.

Pdfs of the map are available here and here.
