Where else can you ride to a WINERY?? The 2016 Fredericksburg Orthopaedics Associates Lakes and Grapes Century ride will continue its tradition of bringing you an outstanding route along Virginia’s most scenic roads. New for this year a second ride to the lake! In addition to our 100, 50 and 20 mile rides we are offering an 80 mile ride that goes to the lake! The 100 and 80 ride will include the Stonewall Jackson shrine, picturesque views of Lake Anna and the Lake Anna Winery. For those riding the 50 miler you don’t get the lake but you do get the Shrine and the rest stop at the award-winning Lake Anna Winery. Taste some of the finest wine in Virginia. Buy your favorites and they will be delivered to you at the finish line. All rides will have rest stops with drink/food and SAG support. And just like every year, we will be providing some of the best post-ride BBQ and pasta of any century ride. So come out on September 10th and join us on the rural roads of Virginia! All proceeds go to our Jay Massad Annual Campaign to help families and children participate in YMCA programs.
Partner Park and Ride Option. Want to visit the winery with your partner but not do all the mileage? We will provide shuttle from the YMCA to the Berkely Rest Stop where you can meet your partner and ride to finish together. There is an $8.00 shuttle fee for this option. If your partner rides 50, you do 42, partner rides 80, you do 51 and if partner rides 100 you do 71. Register for the ride mileage your partner is riding.New to cycling or want to ride with the kids? We offer a 20 mile guided ride at 9am. This will be the perfect course for beginners as a ride leader will be with you all the way.
