02 BridgeRide 315
Ver. 06/30 MAP PDF GPX
RouteType: DESTINATION- New River Bridge near Fayetteville, WV. Great lunch stop. CURVY route.
Navigation difficulty: SIMPLE except for the 8 mile optional Gorge section
Distance: 315 miles. One of the longest routes but much of it is open with sweepers so you can maintain a good pace.
Lunch Stop: Secret Sandwich Society in Fayetteville, WV, is unique, well-known and could be considered a destination in and of itself
Direction from Marietta: S CLOCKWISE
Comments: Main roads: Calhoun Highway, Clay Highway, US 60, 19 This is one of the most popular routes at FlyBy Week for good reason.

Not to be missed- the 7.5 mile road to the bottom of the gorge under the bridge. This is the BrdgRideGorge route segment and should be ranked TWISTY and very slow going. It's fully paved and not difficult. The only trick is finding the starting point if you don't have the route in your GPS. It comes out near the West end of the main bridge so simply cross it and proceed to the start of the afternoon return route.
