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!
