need a route to chesapeake VA - August 17, 2009, 03:57 PM

I'm riding down to a friends house in Chesapeake (near VA beach). I'm leaving thursday (preferably by 12:30 so I can miss 95 S traffic) and coming back on Sunday at any time. I usually take 95 to 64, but traffic can suck ass on 64. a couple people suggested 17 or 95S to 460. Anyone taken these routes? What should I do about coming home on Sunday? Advice please. other advice on stuff to check over on the bike or to bring with me on the ride is welcome too.

going down is all about getting to the other side of richmond before traffic. if you leave at 1230 you should be ok. 295 around richmond to 460 works depending on where in chesapeake you are heading. i have run down that way a cpl of times ... 17 works also but like 460 lots of smaller towns = speed traps. leaving early is your best friend. best bet on the return is 95n to 17 through warrenton to 66e ... anything n of 17 on a sun nite sucks unless it's well after dinner when you get to fredericksburg.


MissS:no now!!!

MissS: I changed my mind

bambam: see MissS: well, you have a few hours

here's my favorite route (link) that i take from centreville to richmond. manassas and richmond is the only large town you'll see on this route. then could you take john tyler memorial highway from richmond to 64?

word. new route to explore

John Tyler Memorial Highway is Rt 5 - which is what I suggested in the Shoutbox. Takes you into the Jamestown area just south of Williamsburg. You can bypass a lot of 64 traffic on this road and its very scenic.

Once at Jamestown, you can follow the signs to 64 or jump on the Historic Colonial Parkway which gets you to 17 where 17 meets 64.

here is a pic of my last trip


From 64, if the Hampton Roads Bridge tunnel is backed up - there will be a bunch of signs saying so - so your other option is the Monitor-Merrimac Bridge Tunnel (Named after the two famous civil war iron clad battleships). That tunnel/bridge will take you to the south side of Virginia Beach and The Great Bridge area of Chesapeake.

good luck.
