Bicycling and Walking in Virginia
United States Bicycle Route 1 and 76 in Virginia
USBR 1 Changes in Northern Virginia District
The alignment of United States Bicycle Route 1 has been updated. US Bike Route 1 was established in 1982. Due to new development in Northern Virginia, the routing of USBR 1 was re-evaluated. The project study area extended from the 14th Street Bridge in Arlington County to the southern boundary of Prince William County. The summary report is provided below. A signing plan will be added to the website shortly. The changes were submitted to AASHTO in early October. The new route will be shown on the map below when the AASHTO committee approves the realignment.
Virginia is a key destination for bicycle touring. U.S. Bike Route 76, also known as the Transamerica Route, traverses the state west to east, while US Bike Route 1 runs north-south. Combined they make up over 838 miles in Virginia.
