02 BridgeRide 315
Ver. 01/01 MAP PDF GPX
RouteType: DESTINATION- New River Bridge near Fayetteville, WV. TOURING BIKE-FRIENDLY
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: Pies and Pints in Fayetteville, WV
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 and is very slow going. Pavement is in good shape but has tight turns and fairly steep grades. Part of it is narrow and one-way. 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 back over the bridge and proceed to the start of the afternoon return route.

06 HB Hotdogs EZ 200-228 Ver. 01/01 MAP PDF GPX
RouteType:
DESTINATION, TOURING BIKE-FRIENDLY
Navigation difficulty: SIMPLE
Distance: 200 miles- the fastest, simplest and shortest way to get there. There are two options for the return trip- Fastest is the 102 mile route via I-77. The longer 131 mile OH version is available if you want to avoid I-77.
Lunch Stop: The unique Hillbilly Hotdogs, Lesage, WV Note: Closed Tue & Wed
Direction from Marietta:
SW COUNTERCLOCKWISE
Comments: Hillbilly Hotdogs is one of the favorite destinations of FlyBy Week attendees. If you've never been there, you HAVE to go! The route there is 95 miles and very quick. That's important because you want to get there as soon after about 11AM as possible, especially if you go on Saturday. Norm recommends going earlier in the week- It gets CROWDED after about 11:30AM, especially on Saturdays.

The Hillbilly Fast Pt2 Return 102 follows the river road (WV 2) back to Point Pleasant where it picks up WV 62, a fun road with sweepers that takes you all the way to I-77. Unfortunately, from there it's 40 miles on I77 back to the hotel.
