A pleasant ride through the peanut and wheat fields of south central Virginia. No spectacular views, but nice agricultural scenery, few cars, and flat with a few rollers. It's very open, so if it's a hot sunny day, bring lots of water and sunscreen. If you get tired, you can bail at about 35.9 by going right on Zion Church Rd (VA 629) for a 5-mile cutoff back to the start. Two updates: (1) the starting point, Cattail Creek RV Park, is now closed. Consider parking at the motel or truck stop just off the interstate instead. (2) The right turn at 35.2 miles has been re-signed as Lifsey Rd. It turns right again at 35.7 miles as indicated in the cue sheet. Have fun!
