Overview

This is a ride that follows the Rivanna Trail around Charlottesville in a clockwise direction. It starts from Bodo's Bagels parking lot and follows the trail clockwise. Since it comprises both public and private land, make sure to check the Rivanna Trail Foundation website for the trail status before you set out. This ride is a mashup of single and doubletrack, hard surface, stream crossings, city parks and rooty climbs. There are plenty of convenience stores along the route to refuel. Enjoy it!

Considering you can easily ride to this trail from any house in C'ville, this is a great trail! Some cool single track and much more than I expected.

Fun when you find the singletrack, but can be confusing linking together all of the neighborhood roads. The GPS was very helpful, but definitely still required some directions from local riders to piece everything together. There are definitely some real fun trails in this loop. Nov 5, 2017
