For 2021 FlyBy Week there are 27 routes to choose from. Each is available
as a printable PDF file that includes a map and turn-by-turn route
instructions, plus an individual Garmin GPX format file. Most routes are
broken into at least two parts to avoid navigation confusion with closed loops
and roads that would otherwise cross or the same road ridden in both
Part 1 takes you from the hotel to the suggested lunch stop. Part 2 takes
you from lunch back to the hotel, usually by a different path.
All routes have had gas stop waypoints added at distances of 80-100 miles
· SHORT ROUTES 50-120 MILES are mostly based on longer routes, but
shortened to be able to be ridden in 3 hours or less. They do not have lunch
stops and are provided in a one part format.
· DESTINATION routes include parks such as Holly River state park in WV,
New River Bridge and gorge etc.
· TOURING BIKE-FRIENDLY routes are easier for big touring bikes.
· EASY NAVIGATION ROUTES FOR NON-GPS utilize easily identified
roads and have fewer turn instructions than the others.
· TWISTY routes have sharp curves, elevation changes and are best for
sport-touring and sport bikes.
· ADVENTURE routes utilize mostly dirt and gravel roads. Level of difficulty
varies with each route, so read the individual descriptions carefully. Most do
not contain any single-track, steep climbs or big rocks and gullies. They are
suitable for all dual-sport and adventure bikes regardless of size or tire
selection. A couple of others are more challenging and include "hero"
sections. Again, read descriptions carefully!
· SIMPLE routes follow main roads and have a smaller number of
· AVERAGE routes can have a lengthy list of instructions, but roads are
generally well marked and easy to follow
· TECHNICAL routes can be complex and include roads that are poorly
marked. Paper turn-by-turn instructions are provided for them, but a GPS
with the route loaded in it is highly recommended.
· ADVENTURE routes frequently use dirt roads and trails that are not
routeable on a GPS, therefore it is highly recommend to use the provided
TRACKS for navigation. (Some of our Adventure routes are tracks only)
