A new road that starts in Wardensville, WV and rides all the way to Moorefield, WV.
It's a small highway with no traffic over 3 mountains.
The veiws are amazing.
The last bridge before you exit at Moorefield is 1200 ft above the ground.

Great mountain road, good pavement, great long stretch of super highway from Wardensville to Moorefield WV.
Drive it many times throughout the summer on bike, by car through winter.
Good little dinner on the outskirts of Moorefield with good food.

SR 55 is a well maintained road so you can get your moneys' worth as you take-in the beautiful scenery.
SR 55 follows several mountain streams and valleys as it winds through the scenic West Virginia mountains.
It connects to US 33, and US 220 in certain sections.
Even the 4 lane super-slab section is a fun road to ride as it offers lots of gentle sweepers while showing-off the mountain vistas.
Very lite traffic - you can pretty much expect to have this road to yourself (obviously a Robert Byrd pork barrel project).
If you are heading east/west and want a fun and scenic - less crowded alternative to US 50, this is it.
Its a gem!

Twisty and scenic, a sweeper here and there.
A great ride on a blue sky day.
