About This Activity

Join the Rotary Club of Bluefield, WV for an epic ride through the mountains of southwestern Virginia.  This ride is an intense 60.81 mile cycling event!  It begins and ends at the East River Mountain Overlook with a scenic turn around at Big Walker Lookout.  The return route will be slightly different than the initial route.  Riders will traverse through some of the most beautiful scenery in the eastern United States.  This ride has it all - winding mountain descents, rolling straight sections, and challenging climbs that include a one mile stretch of hard-packed unpaved ascending road.  Route well marked, with rest stops, and SAG support.  Proceeds from this event will go toward the End Polio Now campaign for Rotary International.
