Separating the Atlantic Ocean and the Chesapeake Bay is the 70-mile-long peninsula known as Virginia’s Eastern Shore. Countless waterways, small towns and villages, abundant wildlife, and miles of prime bicycling roads comprise this tranquil region. Starting in quaint and sophisticated Onancock, the ramble takes the cyclist through a marvelous network of flat country roads past small farms of tomatoes, peppers, and sweet potatoes. Stop in the fishing village of Wachapreague for a seafood lunch overlooking the marshes and barrier islands. End the ride in picturesque Onancock, and spend the night in one of its many bed-and-breakfasts. Plan on a cruise through the Chesapeake to remote Tangier Island, where the Elizabethan English accent can still be heard. Terrain: Almost entirely flat, with just a few gentle rollers.
