Northern Neck Multiday Cruise Professional Review and Guide
"Tucked away in the upper Tidewater, on a peninsula created by the Potomac and Rappahannock Rivers and the Chesapeake Bay, lies Virginia's Northern Neck. It has been largely bypassed by the inexorable march of progress, with its highways and subdivisions and what a blessing for cyclists. On this ride you'll pedal past homes dating to the late eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, farmhouses in the middle of carefully tended fields, and watermen still using time-honored traditional methods of harvesting fish, crabs, and oysters from the bay and rivers.
The byways follow old Indian trails and colonial roads, and on the entire peninsula there are only 8 traffic lights. Don't miss out on the fresh crabs served at local restaurants. Terrain: flat to rolling; traffic is light on most roads, but moderate on Rtes. 3 and 360. Traffic around Reedville can also be heavy on weekends. For the full multiday ride, plan to arrive at Reedville midweek."
