I love improving things and this year’s ride, we are changing to stay in Fredericksburg the full time, without traveling to other cities and hotels. #unpackonce. The routes will be different each day and will have a shorter (40+/-) or longer (90+/-) daily distance option. Staying in one place makes it easier to participate in all or some days and allows time for work (if you have to) and more relaxation.
Some perks with staying in Fredericksburg the full time.
-Wonderful, scenic routes.
-One great hotel for the week (Fredericksburg Inn & Suites).
-Cookout and catered suppers at the hotel around the pool.
-Ability to come and go through the week or ride all week.
-Saturday “Bike Out Hunger – Fredericksburg” possible event bringing in more riders.
-A few “house concerts” on the hotel grounds by the pool and fireplace.
Things included in the ride.
-Stocked stretch points on the routes
-Breakfast at host hotel, if staying at host hotel (Fredericksburg Inn & Suites) which I strongly recommend
-Suppers on the hotel grounds (some catered, some I’ll grill out there for you)
-Discounted massage rates
The routes below are TENTATIVE as of 02.14.2017. We will solidify them as we get closer to the event and hold the option to reroute for safety. A change from “tentative” to “scheduled” will be forthcoming.
Each day has two main distance options. The routes overlap as much as possible.
61mi to Cherry Spring https://ridewithgps.com/routes/18502057
The daily ride fee is $65 and includes all the goodies and activities above.

In addition to the daily riding fee, each person is asked to raise $100 (more is more kids getting food) per day of riding. Don’t worry, we make it easy to share what you’re doing for feeding kids.
Hotel (another change this year)
To better accommodate the number of riders coming in and out of the event, each person needs to book their hotel room (single or double – your choice) with Fredericksburg Inn & Suites. The room block is under Bike Out Hunger and we have a special rate ($109 Sun-Thurs and $169 Fri-Sat), call them at 830-997-0202. The room rates are limited and will expire April 15 and are only available when you call in.
Monday – 11 am start for those opting to not arrive Sunday evening (shorter route day)
Tuesday – Saturday we will start both ride distances at 8 am
Courses close at 5pm
Suppers are at 6-ish pm
Evenings with house concerts will start around 7:30-ish pm
All start/stop points are the Fredericksburg Inn & Suites.
