Description: This ride covers parts of central Hanover County and the surrounding areas, which offer a lot of beautiful countryside. Most routes include a few good hills. Some routes do not have a store stop, so bring plenty of water. Notwithstanding the name of the ride, everyone is invited to join us, whether employed or not.

Directions: The ride starts and finishes at the Hanover County Government Complex (often called the "Hanover Courthouse"). The Hanover County Government Complex (7497 County Complex Rd., Hanover, VA 23069) is on US Route 301 just south of the intersection of Routes 54 and 301. From I-295, take Exit 41 onto Route 301, travel north for approximately 10.5 miles and turn right onto County Complex Rd. From I-95, take Exit 92 (Rt. 54 East) towards Hanover. Travel approximately 5 miles to the intersection with Rt. 301. Turn right onto Rt. 301. Travel approximately one-half mile and turn left onto County Complex Rd.

Description: This ride leaves from the Laurel Park Shopping Center at the corner of Woodman and Hungary Roads. The twenty mile route follows the ABC route which is almost flat to Ashland and back to Laurel Park Shopping Center. Longer routes have a few hills. The C pace is a no drop ride, but for other paces, leaders will generally try and make sure that no one is dropped from their group, regrouping as often as needed. This ride is open to all cyclists. Due to the possibility of returning in low light, each rider should have a working head-light and a rear blinkie. After the ride join your fellow riders for dinner, usually at Franco's on Staple's Mill Rd or another local restaurant.

Directions: Laurel Park Shopping Center (9500 Woodman Rd, Richmond, VA 23228) at Hungary and Woodman Roads.

Description and Directions: Rides depart weekly on Mondays and Thursdays at 5:30 pm from the Prince George County Courthouse parking lot (Laurel Springs Road & Courts Drive). It's a mostly level rural ride with a few gentle hills. Currently riding A, B+, and/or B paces with other paces welcome to form. Route option distances average between 22 to 34 miles.

The routes vary from week to week selected by the ride leader. Routes start and end at the Prince George County Courthouse parking lot (public restrooms available). The slower pace groups may ride one of the shorter options and the faster pace groups will ride one of the longer options so that everyone finishes around the same time. Pace groups will be spaced out at the ride start to avoid large groups of cyclists on the road.

Paper cue sheets are not provided. You should print your own cue sheet prior to coming to the ride. GPX files and cue sheets are available on the RABA website, or provided by contacting the ride leader. New members and those just getting started (or re-started) with cycling are encouraged to come out. You will not be dropped and left behind.
