2018 Shenandoah Valley Century!

The 36th Annual Shenandoah Valley Century is history!

It wasn’t the best day, weather-wise, but in spite of the rain, over 50 stalwart riders joined us, many of them completing the entire 100-mile course!

Thank you to everyone who registered; we really hope to see you next year. We can’t make promises about the weather, but we’re sure it will be nicer!

The 37th annual Shenandoah Valley Century will take place on Sunday, September 8, 2019.

      Chris, We will have day of registration provided that the event does not fill up to the 300 rider limit. The past three years we have hit our 300 rider limit prior to the event. Hope you can make it!

    Have you updated the route for the 1/2 yet? I entered last year into strava but as I am not local I would like the route before I arrive.

      Tricia, the Shenandoah Valley Bicycle Coalition uses the Century as one of our primary fundraisers to support our mission to Build better communities in the Valley. We think that we are work is extremely valuable and that we touch many lives to improve our communities. Take a look at what funds from the century helped us accomplish last year: http://svbcoalition.org/givingtuesday-and-we-did-what-in-2016/

    Do you have GPX files to download for the 50 and 100 mile routes ? (Using a Garmin 1000)?

    Could you send me a CUE Sheet of the 50 mile ride so I can make a GPX file for my Garmin to use?

    • dromscg

      Keith: due to a couple of long-term road construction projects, we are having to remap some portions of the ride. We hope to be finished with that in the next couple of weeks. Once we are, I’ll get GPX file and maps posted on this website.

        Thanks, I did the Century years ago at this event. I was pretty tired when done.

    Can we do a ’75 option by skipping one of the loops on the 100?

    • Kyle
      September 4, 2018 at 1:21 pm

      Yes. It is easy to skip either loop 2 or loop 3 and end up with closer to 75 miles.
