Smithfield Cruise

Smithfield Cruise Professional Review and Guide

"Smithfield, also known as the “ham capital of the world,” is the base for this flat cruise around Isle of Wight County. The cruise winds through Virginia’s Southside, the region south of the James River noted for its agriculture and slower pace of life.

Popular with peninsula cyclists, the Smithfield Cruise is at its best in the fall, when the many cotton fields are in full bloom. Spend some time after the ride in the hospitable town of Smithfield, where its link to the past is reflected in its homes, landmarks, and food. Terrain: Mostly flat. A few gentle rollers. The challenge for beginners will be the distance, not terrain."

It is a nice trail with traffic being a problem only for the first .5 miles. THe scenery is good and I was only chased by two dogs the whole time. Although they never left there yard.
