The Allegheny Mountains Loop is a 400 mile bicycle route created and mapped by the Adventure Cycling Association.
The route begins and ends at Virginia Tech’s War Memorial Chapel in Blacksburg, VA.
A “Grand Depart” (i.e. mass start) of Individual Time Trials is proposed each year on the last Friday in APRIL at 6:00am (local time).
This springtime adventure is planned when almost any type of weather is possible along the Virginia/West Virginia border… which could include very cold rain or even snow during this time of year.
The intent is to ride self-sufficient between towns and to function self-supported when in towns.
Above all… attempts are intended to be solo (in essence), self-timed, and observed as one stage, i.e. the clock runs non-stop.
