Shenandoah Valley or the National Park?

I think it was the 2004 Bike Virginia I did that started in Winchester.

I also did some riding in Roanoke.

Overall, great cycling. Little car-used country roads, rolling hills, pleasant people ... and some major climbs. I remember Walker Mt and Star Mt.

Note, western Va goes further west than West VA!

Shenandoah Valley Century Ride

I did the Shenandoah Valley Century Ride about five years ago. The ride was a set of four clover leaf-like loops with Harrisonburg, VA, as the start and end point.

I remember a scenic route with a lot of farms and rural roads, and light car traffic. The route did not go into the National Park, and I don't recall any major climbs.
