Description

Section 12 of the TransAm Trail begins in Christiansburg. Most of the roads through the Appalachians of central Virginia are narrow. After the town of Vesuvius, there is a four-mile climb onto the Blue Ridge Parkway. The hills continue along the  Parkway. No commercial traffic is allowed and the speed limit of 45 mph is strictly enforced. There are, however, no shoulders and there are a great number of recreational vehicles.

After leaving the parkway, the gently rolling hills of the Tidewater are well-suited for cycling. You'll ride along the Colonial National Historical Park between Williamsburg and Yorktown, the TransAm Trail's ending point.

ABOUT ADVENTURE CYCLING MAPS
Adventure Cycling maps are created by cyclists, for cyclists, and they are some of the best available for those in search of discovery and adventure in North America. The maps reflect the association's research as well as suggestions from thousands of cyclists who have explored the Adventure Cycling Route Network. Adventure Cycling develops the best cross-country, loop, coastal, and inland cycling routes available, with turn-by-turn directions, detailed navigational instructions for the tricky sections, and elevation profiles in the high country.

The maps are waterproof and designed to fit in a handlebar-bag window or jersey pocket. The maps provide information specifically for cyclists: the location of bike shops, sources for food and water, and listings of overnight accommodations including camping facilities, small hotels, and cyclists-only lodging.
