VDOT looking for comments on state bike map

Portion of  Bicycling in VA map
VDOT is updating the official state bicycle map, Bicycling in Virginia. See our comments on the last map revision. VDOT has these comments and will consider them during this revision process. Our main comment is that there are many good bike routes in Virginia, mostly on quiet rural roads. Bike Virginia uses these roads on their tours and they are a great way to discover the diversity of the state.

We would like to see a bike map that includes many more routes criss-crossing the state. On the current map, in counties, like Orange, Nelson, Culpeper, Buckingham, etc. there are no routes. There are some excellent bike rides in Faquier Co. but only the short segment of US Bike Route 1 is show in the southeast corner. It would be a major undertaking to develop the routes but we think it would be worth the effort.

If you have other comments, visit the Bicycling in Virginia Map Comment Form:
VDOT would like your feedback on the Bicycling in Virginia Map. Are you aware of any new trails, bicycle clubs, or other features we should include when we update our map? Have you noticed any typos or errors? If so, please submit your comments below to help improve our map, your responses will be kept private.
