Question Need a rout from Alexandria to Berryville? - February 28, 2012, 09:18 AM

Just what the title says.

Not that familiar with any other roads than 50.
Looking for good motorycle (vintage/cafe-type)
route East to West.

Let me know.
Thanks

Not sure what you mean. Is it that you just want a change from Rt50? What about Rt7? Or do you mean you want something a little less traveled?

You could probably ride a cafe on the W&OD, just make sure to shout "On your left!"

lol yeah, don't know of any "nice" routes besides cutting through rich neighborhoods until you get to sterling. You could just take the GW parkway from Alexandria to Georgetown Pike, ride that to Rt 7, and head west. Dunno anything beyond that, I don't get out much.
Side streets along Gtown Pike are good residential cruising, cul de sacs with vacant mansions serve as nice quiet access to the river

Perfect!
haha!

Yeah I only know GW to 7 then continue west, or 50.

I was hoping for something a little less traveled... 50 isn't bad once you get past 15 though. Thats probably the route I'll take.

Thanks

They patrol the living sh*t out of that area between the 15 roundabout and Middleburg so be forewarned.

Here's a little detour that might be worth it: From 50, head north on 15 and take a left on Lime Kiln Road (sahweet!), then north on 734 (Snickersville Tpke) to 7 to Berryville. There's tons of good backroads/semi-dirt roads through Loudoun County that are great for Cafe types, but that could be a whole ride onto itself. Is this for the inaugural Church St. Cafe ride?

The real problem is that all routes are constrained by crossing the Catoctin Ridge and Shenandoah River to get to Berryville. That means I66, Rt 50, or Rt 7. The only options are some interconnecting roads west of Rt 15 and east of the Ridge (Snickersville Pike 50 to 7, or Rt 690/St Louis Road from Purcellville/Bus 7 to 50). Perhaps out Rt 50 & 50/17, split off to Millwood Rd (just past the river) through Millwood, Rt 255 to US 340 into Berryville?? Nice horse country.

I'm not really concerned with the route west of 15.
I know most of the smaller back roads to the north and south of 50.

What I was trying to avoid was the slab and traffic on 50 from Alexandria to 15.
I guess there is really no way to avoid it... other then looping up and over through MD. No worries. I wouldn't even rolll through Alexandria, but I'm tyring to get some DCRATs on the ride.
