The construction near Carter's Bridge is apparently over.
Locals sometimes enjoy forcing you to slow down by "put-putting" along but this is still one the best bike roads EAST of the Blue Ridge and IN No. Va.
Basically runs from hamlet of Aldie (Route 50) to town of Bluemont (Route 7).
The only public toilet in Bluemont is a Don's John.
Rice-Burners may wish it was more challenging.
Harley Riders will be in heaven. Beautiful scenery for all.
I have gone down three times over 20 years, that Hairpin at the northern end was the most recent.
I had no idea it was there.
No major damage to me or bike but you have been warned (wink).
Almost all the roads in this area will give you a fun afternoon exploring and riding.
Classic Virginia hunt country scenery.

Going South 1/3 of a mile from Route 7, you HAVE to take the hairpin turn on the extreme outside going very slowly in order to make that turn.
I cut it just a little too tight, but still in my lane at 5 mph and ended up in the guardrail.
Going North to Route 7 at the same turn, the turn has a steep slope towards you, so when you're leaning right to take the turn, you'll need to bring the lean back up in the middle of the turn or else you'll be on your side before you know it.
Be very careful on that turn.
Otherwise, Snickersville Turnpike is a great scenic road east of the Shenandaoh River.

Fun road - hairpin turn at the north end.
During 2007 there's some construction going on at the south end - don't know how long that will last.

Nice road between Route 7 and Route 50 in VA.
Hairpin turn at the Snickersville end (north) of the road.
Country road with a number of nice turns and a one lane bridge.
Farm/horse country, so anticipate the road is not always clean and clear.
