Since this route starts in Madison County you can be sure that hills will be on the menu. While none of the hills are incredibly long, you will definitely feel the hills in your legs by the time you hit the last two climbs on Beahm Town Rd and Thoroughfare Rd.
Brightwood General Store certainly is abright-spot in the heart of Madison County, VA. Where else can you order a great sandwich, pickup local preserves or listen to Blue Grass, all at one General Store. With live music, featuring an open jam every Friday & Saturday night at 7pm. Not only is Brightwood General Store a great place to sample great food and listen to music, it’s also a respite for weary cyclists riding the roads around Madison, VA. For the last 16 years, BGS has been owned and operated by David Peake and he is a huge supporter of everything cycling-related, what other general store has a parking lot named Dura Ace Lane!?!
