Cycling in the Shenandoah area in Virginia is a yearly event for many cyclists. Our group this year included approximately 100 cyclists! We do this to get our season started, it is one week-long, and we ride approximately 500 to 600 kilometres (depending on the cyclist). The drive from Montreal is 1140 kilometres but entirely worth the distance. This year, the cycling week took place from April 15 to April 21 2012.
