Bike Stop Rides

Saturday Social Rides

Join us on the 2nd and 4th Saturday every month for social rides, beginning this Saturday April 13th!

Whether you’re just wanting to get some sun on your face with good company or looking for a longer more spirited ride, we've got you covered.

We are heading out in two separate groups: Group 1 (leisurely) and Group 2 (spirited). These are no-drop rides, and we’ll stop to regroup along the way. Both Groups will meet at the Bike Stop at 7:45 a.m. and roll out at 8:00 a.m.

Group 1 - This group is great for new and veteran cyclists alike that are looking for a shorter and more leisurely paced ride (7-10) mph. We will be riding around Warrenton including historic Old Town, Walker Drive, Warrenton Chase, and the Warrenton Branch Greenway.

Group 2 - This group is for those looking for a longer and more spirited ride (15-18 mph). This route is going to change every few weeks but all of them will be rolling through different areas of the county.

***ALL RIDES ARE WEATHER PERMITTING! Check Facebook or Instagram if bad weather is in the forecast.***

Monday Night Moderate

Beginning Monday, April 15th, the start time for the Bike Stop's Monday Moderate Ride is changing! Instead of leaving at 5:45, we're moving the start time to 6:00. The sun is now setting late enough that we can start the ride later and still have plenty of time to get back to the shop before dusk.

The 20-mile route we follow can be found here.

There are definitely a few challenging hills and we’ll be on Meetze Road for a short distance.
REMINDER: If you’re fairly new to cycling and are not sure of the average speed you can maintain or distance you can cycle, you’re strongly encouraged to attend one of the Bike Stop's shorter Saturday Social Ride first.

Important note: Riders who arrive late will be left behind! No SAG (support) is provided. Make sure your bike is in good working condition and bring appropriate gear (spare tube, pump, patch kit, tire levers, etc.) to make repairs if needed.

Course Library

Casanova Loop

This is the well-known Bike Stop ride route for the Monday Moderate rides. This is a 20-mile loop starts and ends at The Bike Stop. If your looking for a fun scenic route with some punchy rollers, this is your route. You can even stop at a local Farm Brewery if that’s your thing.

Springs Loop

This is a 33 mile ride loop starting and ending at The Bike Stop. Its one of our favorite routes with just about 1,400 ft elevation gain. The route gives you scenic pasture views and even a winery!

Waterloo/Arlie Loop

This is a beautiful 35-mile route with some nice climbs and majestic scenery and a total elevation gain of 2,400 ft. Stop off in the town of Marshall if you want to explore what this quaint town has to offer.

Hopping Elephant Loop

This 55.5-mile route has some great climbs and takes you right past Barrel Oak Winery, so if your feeling like taking in some Virginia wine and great views of the mountains, this is a must-see. Total elevation gain is 4,248 ft.

Bear Wallow Loop

This is a very short loop, being that it has a very punchy climb and a bombing decent which is not for the faint of heart. This route is only 12.2 miles, but with an elevation gain of 1,114 ft.

Sperryville or Bust

This is an epic ride that takes you to the town of Sperryville, VA via Skyline Drive. Skyline Drive is a national park and there is a small entrance fee entering the park. Please note: Skyline Drive, and the overlook points and the Shenandoah Nation Park get very busy and there is a lot of vehicular traffic on the weekend.

Warrenton-Sperryville Century

If you’re looking for some serious miles this is a great 102-mile route that takes you through the Virginia piedmont region to the base of the Shenandoah mountains.
