This 52-mile trail goes from the first capital of Virginia in Jamestown to the current capital in Richmond. Today we started in the middle at Charles City and rode west toward Richmond from Mile Marker 20 – MM 40 at Four Mile Creek Park. Twelve more miles to Richmond, but it gets quite hilly. Today’s ride was hilly enough.
Our turn-around point was at Four Mile Creek Park where we rested for about 30 minutes, ate our lunch and visited with a couple from Alexandria who were riding the entire trail, but in shorter segments over a few days.
Somewhere in the distance in Shirley Plantation. There were several plantations along our route.
Back at Charles City. 40 miles complete – the longest ride for both of us so far this year. Yes, a few body parts are sore and a very good night’s sleep is ahead.
