It’s downright amazing that you can hold a 50-mile, mostly-mountain bike ride almost entirely within a city’s boundaries, but that’s exactly what RVA MORE has been doing for going on four years now. The Tour de Fall Line is “a scenic tour of the James River basin by bike (also in 28- and 14-mile rides), where participants explore the length of the James River’s fall line trails.

Hosted by RVA MORE to raise money for the trail building cause, all proceeds directly benefit the group to help enhance all of our outdoor experience on our local trails. In addition to the rides, there is a party at the start/finish line at Stone Brewery where each rider will get a ticket to redeem for a box lunch from North End Juice Co and a beer ticket. Also at the post-race party Pello Bikes will be setting up a kids’ bike course so mom and dad can relax, have a refreshment, and watch the kids ride. Bring your own bike or take one of the Pello’s out for a spin. Pello Bikes will donate $1 to RVA MORE for each person that signs up for the Pello newsletter. Bring the kids and make it a family day.

What about the rides themselves? This is a chance to ride a route that hits all the major trail systems in Richmond in one 50-mile loop. You will ride trails in a number of Richmond’s parks, including the James River Park System, Forest Hill, Ancarrow’s Landing, Dogwood Dell, Powhite, Pony Pasture and Larus. Smaller ride options of roughly 28 and 14 miles are available as well. All routes showcase what makes Richmond trails so unique and fun to ride.

Mountain bikes are recommended, as the courses will have plenty of dirt and lots of technical singletrack. You’ll follow a marked course with aid stations along the way.

I was the Outdoors Columnist at the Times-Dispatch from 2007 to 2013, writing twice a week about mountain biking, fishing, hunting, paddling and much more. I live a 1/4 mile from the James River, close enough to see bald eagles soaring over my house on their way to find a meal. Pretty cool, eh?
