Route 5 - found in a cage no less - July 22, 2007, 07:52 AM

so me and some buds decided on a golf trip to my hometown of Va Beach this weekend. no this isn't going to be a rant about golf.

one thing I will never do - drive to Va Beach on a Saturday morning ... EVAR again.

95 S == parking lot at 9am

I managed to make it to 295, which hooks you up to 64 east, but found traffic from 64 east backed up for about 8 miles onto 295. That's recockulous.

SO I headed south for a bit and decided to gas up on route 5. While gassing up, i ran into the Stop-n-go to look at maps. It showed me that route 5 would take me all the way to Jamestown - so I decided to take a gander.

Route 5 was very For you history buffs - (and old house freaks), it was littered with old plantations and all kinds of Civil War historical info. The road was great for riding too - I'm sure the cruisers would enjoy the scenery and although there weren't to many hills, the sport riders would enjoy the many many sweepers and switch backs. Also enticing - no traffic. I was able to get to the Williamsburg/Jamestown area fairly quick which then dumped me onto 64 which had a few trouble spots - but I'm not going to bitch about that.

anyway - i have a 10:03 tee time - I just wanted to report on this road if anyone should find themselves in the RIchmond-Williamsburg-Jamestown area to check it out.

Thanks for the info.. I been taking Rt-1 South to 295 to Rt-60. Even having to go through Fredricksburg, Rt-1 is much faster than 95.

That is indeed a good ride (for Richmond anyways). When I lived in Richmond I used to ride to Williamsburg and back all the time (90 mins round-trip) Had my first accident on that road (thanks for running that light b****).

If you have the time head South on 156 or 106 (they meet up again), take the ferry across the James River and head back North on Rt 10 (towards Hopewell). You can jump back on 295 or 95 from there.
