The Criglersville Rambler is a challenging 60 mile ride that heads west from Culpeper into the foothills of the Shenandoah Mountains. With over 3,000 feet of climbing (we think MayMyRide.com is wrong with its elevation) this great ride is full of great scenery, empty roads and a few challenging climbs.
At about mile 30 you will begin the climb that the locals call “Mini Drive”, while the climb is longer and not as steep from this side, it still proves to be a challenging climb that reaches well over 12% at the during the last 200 meters.
Just remember, this part of Virginia can be known for afternoon showers that make their way over the mountain range, so make sure to grab a rain jacket if you plan on heading out in the late afternoon.
The Criglersville Rambler is a wonderful ride, and is used by many of the local racers as a training route, so you can bet it will be a challenging ride, especially after 60 miles.
