lakes and grapes century ride
Ron Rosner Family YMCA
saturday, September 16, 2017

The 2017 Fredericksburg Orthopaedic Associates Lakes and Grapes Century Ride will continue its tradition of bringing you outstanding routes along Virginia’s most scenic roads.  Choose from 20, 50, 80 or 100 mile ride options.  The 20 mile ride is the perfect course for beginners as a ride leader will be with you all the way.  All rides will have rest stops with drink/food and SAG support.  The Century ride will include the Stonewall Jackson shrine, picturesque views of Lake Anna and the Lake Anna Winery.  For those riding the 50 miler you don’t get the lake but you do get the Shrine and the rest stop at the award-winning Lake Anna Winery.  Taste some of the finest wine in Virginia. Buy your favorites and have the bottles delivered to you at the finish line.  (Bring a credit card or money so you don’t miss out on your soon-to-be favorite wines.)

And just like last year, we will be providing some of the best post-ride lunch of any century ride. So come out on September 16th and join us on the rural roads of Virginia! All proceeds go to our Jay Massad Annual Campaign to help families and children participate in YMCA programs.
