Great ride on this loop today. Gentle rolling hills with beautiful scenery. I especially liked riding from the plains back up to Middleburg, as there are nice sweeping turns as well as a higher speed limit. Not many cars and great photo opportunities.
Vineyards and farms with scenic hills on the horizon. Through the farmlands and vineyards of the entry to the Virginia plains, on the horizon are the hills and mountains of the Shenandoah.Speed limits are low, 35-45mph posted, but some nice twists on the way South from Middleburg and straighter shot on the return North. There is nothing stopping you between Middleburg and The Plains, and the roads are in very good condition. Speed is moderate and there is occasion for some farm material or gravel to find its way onto the road. Generally very good condition and some good fun, with the limited speed (posted) keeping it from being very challenging.
