  • Cycling In the New River Valley - "In the late 90s’, a handful of local cyclists teamed up to create the original Cycling in the New River Valley Guidebook. Although the original document was completed nearly 20 years ago it’s still used on a regular basis today. In 2015, the New River Valley Bicycle Association partnered with the New River Valley Regional Commission to update the guide. This website provides the most current route descriptions, turn-by-turn instructions, and overhead maps for more than 30 road rides, 58 optional/alternate routes, and nearly a dozen off-road rides.

  • Ride With GPS: a free website and phone app that lets you plan, save, and share (if you wish) routes.  Shows elevation profiles and can be used for directions on your phone.  The paid subscription option lets you print nice cue sheets and use turn-by-turn phone directions outside cell network coverage.
