Nice Little Twisty in Winchester..... - July 29, 2006, 08:43 AM

I was in Winchester on business yesterday and happened upon a pretty sweet road. Unfortunately I was traveling in my pice-of-shit company car.

Anyway, for you guys and gals living there or anyone riding out that way. Check out Perry Rd. You'll prolly need to mapquest it cause it's off the beaten path.

Yep. That is a nice little pice of roadway Good job finding that one. It is a little off the beaten path of Winchester.

There are all kinds of hidden little secret roads out here in the Shenandoah Valley. You would be amazed at some of the awesome roads that I have found that rarely see any traffic. The WARP crew is determined to find them all!

I'm new to winchester and always looking for a good road to ride. I live on Back Mountain Road (Off of 50) and thought it might be ok... 40 minutes and 2 sweepers later I started limping back to the house.

Ya'll know of any others?

Siler Road.

I discovered this one on my own and then went on a ride with Ed and found it again. Good road. Watch for fine gravel, though.

sweet, that one is right by my house too! -- and almost worth the extra 15 minutes it would add to my commute in the morning.

Code:
Rt 50 -> 37 -> 81 -> 7 -> 267 -> 110 -> Pentagon City = the suck!

Oh, the exit ramp for the Winchester Medical center off of US 11/37 is great for practicing corners. Unfortunately there is a Jersey wall on both sides, but I guess that's better than those metal posts. /shrug. -- watch out the first time... the radius decreases a little bit as you reach the top. Do a "U-Turn" at the first intersection and take it left handed!

Yeah, it an epic journey every morning and afternoon.

Each way is just under 90 miles. My right shoulder is perma-cramped.

With that route, riding is probably preferrable due to HOV restrictions on 267 and 66. Better start looking for a commuting buddy before winter.

I'm lucky enough to decide my own hours. Right now I work 6am - 2:30pm (makes for a hell of an early day) so I can avoid the HOV crap. I have thought about changing it to something like 7:30 - 4:00 but my alternate route (267 -> 495 N -> GW Parkway) looks like it could be pretty slow. (?)

[edit]
At least the merge onto 495 looks like it could be slow. I always see it backed up. anyone know how long it usually takes to get onto the gw parkway from 267?
