Bicycling and Walking in Virginia
United States Bicycle Route 1 and 76 in Virginia
USBR 1 Study
The alignment of United States Bicycle Route 1 is being updated. US Bike Route 1 was established in 1982. Due to new development in Northern Virginia, the current routing of USBR 1 needs to be re-evaluated along with any possible alternates. The project study area extends from the 14th Street Bridge in Arlington County to the southern boundary of Prince William County. This study will include a detailed signing plan and cost estimate for future implementation.
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.
