Situated just 10 miles southeast of Richmond, the Richmond Battlefield Cruise takes the cyclist on a historic and moderately easy tour of several significant Civil War forts and battlegrounds. Beginning at Fort Harrison, the cruise rolls past Fort Hoke and through the now peaceful Richmond National Battlefield Park. Additional historic stops can be made at Malvern Hill Battlefield and Glendale Visitor Center and National Cemetery. A ride into Dory Park, with its scenic lake and picnic areas, offers a welcome rest stop and a chance to reflect on the significance of the forts and battlefields just witnessed. Terrain: Mostly flat with some moderate hills. Suitable for beginners.
