The Northern Neck Cruise explores the quiet and picturesque peninsula nestled between the Potomac and Rappahannock rivers, two mighty tributaries of the Chesapeake Bay. Starting in the Westmoreland County seat of Montross, the cruise is an easy mix of flat to gentle rolling terrain and a delightful blend of natural beauty and historical interest.
Cyclists can stop at the Westmoreland Berry Farm to pick or purchase fresh fruit, taste wines at the Ingleside Plantation Vineyards, tour Stratford Hall, one of America’s great houses of history and the home of Robert E. Lee, and in between, cruise past countless meticulously kept farms of wheat, soybeans, and corn. Back in Montross, a just reward is dinner and overnight stay at the beautiful 1790 The Inn at Montross. Terrain: Flat to gently rolling. No major climbs. A few short, steep hills.
