I just moved out here and have found that 7 and 15 are rather straight...


anyone know of any side streets I could cruise? I am close to the outlet malls.


Thanks

Hey Rick,
Welcome to Loudoun County. Here's a few roads for you to look for on the map.

Evergreen Mills Rd.
Belmont Ridge Rd.
Clarkes Gap Rd.
Dry Mill Rd.
Lovettsville Rd.
Ballenger Creek Pike

There are alot of great roads around Harpers Ferry too. You could also take Whites Ferry over into Md.
I'm in Sterling, so if you want to hook up, PM me.

There is nothing great there. But you are in a good area to ride 150 miles to the good stuff.

Leesburg is close to Middleburg... lots of cool roads out there.
some of the roads off of 15 are cool, too.

take 7, out to route 9 and head towards berryville, sometimes the cage traffic can get annoying, but 9 has plenty of curves as you head towards charlestown, Belmont Ridge and Evergreen are good, but be careful of bad road conditions, I ride those two almost constantly, Belmont has heavy construction traffic, lots of debris on the road often and some gnarly potholes...now, just avoid the horrific cagers, Loudoun is getting too big, trying to move the hell outta here

Confusing the issue, since before you were ugly.

Rick,
Welcome to Leesburg. I have been out here a while myself. I am off of potomac station drive which is behind the outlets. Let me know if you want to get together some time and ride.

Here's a short run near Leesburg, I call it the "Turn Left when I have to" run. Basically take 15 north to Lucketts, make a left on Stumptown Rd, and keep going, when you're forced to turn, turn Left, and you'll eventually get back to 7 Easy enough for beginners, but with some good turns for more experienced riders to take at speed, and a nice stretch to open'er up for a minute.

from Leesburg, take 15 N to Lucketts

Left on Stumptown Rd (622) keep following it until it T's with Loyalty Rd.

Left on Loyalty Rd, stay on it into Waterford,

In Waterford, Loyalty Rd makes a Y, turning into Water Street and Butcher's Row, take the left fork of the Y, which is Butcher's Row, which turns into High Street, and then to Clarkes Gap Rd

Clarkes Gap will T with Charlestown Pike (rt 9) left here will take you back to 7.

Take 15 South towards Gainesville until you hit route 50, make a right on 50 and go down a couple miles through the little town. Right before you leave the town you will see Snickersville Turnpike on the right. This road has a ton of twisties and a couple good spots to really open it up. Snickersville turnpike will eventually run into rt 7 on the Leesburg side of Mt. Weather.

That's weird. Me too, same road, but in 5 years, I've never seen another sportbike in the hood.

15 south
right on Lime Kiln,
right at stop sign on Snickersville Turnpike,
immediate left on Mountville rd.
Left at stop sign on Foxcroft rd.
That will take you into Middleburg. From there right on West Washington street at light and grab a beer and lunch at Maxwell's (formerly Magpie's) and head south (left) on The Plains Rd into Marshall, where you can hook up with several roads to take you to 211 if you like.

Also +1 on rte 9, although a better longer, twistier route is to head north on Harper's Ferry Rd, past the fire station,
and left at the Tri-State Amoco on rte 340.
Take a left on Chestnut Hill Rd.
Take to second stop sign and right onto rte. 9 just before the good twisties!
Proceed into Charlestown where you make a left at some stop light and there is a great sandwich shop in old town on the left. Veer left onto Summit Point Rd. and get it! Watch out for cops there though they like shiny sportbikes.
