Bicycling in Virginia Map

Official State Bicycle Map - CoverWhether you are a seasoned rider or a new fan of cycling, let this map be your gateway to a world of new experiences. 

There is something for everyone:

  • The Commonwealth’s 838 miles of United States Bicycles Routes 1 and 76
  • The Virginia Capital Trail, connecting the colonial capital of Williamsburg with the modern capital of Richmond
  • Numerous locations for off-road mountain bike rides
  • A range of facilities suitable for beginners and families with young children.

The urban trails network of Northern Virginia is here, and the wild and challenging Heart of Appalachia Bike Route – 128 miles of paved and unpaved roads through remote, mountainous southwest Virginia.

Bicycling in Virginia focuses on routes and information of most interest to cyclists, includes setting, terrain, elevation and surface conditions.

Inset enlargements of selected locations give details for parking and other facilities. The colored areas of the map show Virginia’s state and national parks and tourism regions, making it easy to find more information about food, lodging and other attractions.

We hope you will use this map to enjoy our beautiful commonwealth, to visit natural and cultural attractions, to ride for transportation, health, and fun and to reduce traffic congestion and air pollution.

There’s a lot to do on two wheels! Enjoy the ride, and welcome to Bicycling in Virginia.
