This ride takes you to the site of Virginia’s premier steeplechase event, The Virginia Gold Cup. Along the way you’ll have great views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, see some Texas longhorns, and visit at the site of the former railroad stop that bypassed Middleburg, fueling Middleburg’s earlier decline. The Virginia Gold Cup, held the first Saturday in May, is so important to the local steeplechase circuit that other races are held based on the number of weekends between them and the premier event. Things to see: Great Meadow, The Plains.
