About This Activity

A scenic and historical adventure through southwest Virginia’s beautiful New River Valley, the ride follows part of Daniel Boone’s Wilderness Road.  This is a ride for the whole family to enjoy, with something for everyone— 4 routes to choose from ranging from a 29 mile relaxed journey for novices, to a 79 mile challenge for the fittest cyclist.  This year we will be offering a kids bike rodeo and fun ride in the park. This is a must ride for cyclists of all ages and athletic abilities. The 23rd Annual Wilderness Road Ride takes place Saturday of Memorial Day weekend.

The Wilderness Road Ride takes place Saturday, May 24, 2014. All routes start and finish in Radford, at the Dedmon Center and Bisset Park. Non-riders can enjoy Bisset Park, the New River, and downtown Radford, while their families and friends are out riding.
