TransAmerica Bicycle Trail: Bike Route
The TransAmerica Bicycle Trail launched in 1976 to celebrate the nation’s 200th birthday. As you can see in Fluvanna County’s logo, we celebrate the twenty-two miles of BR76 that pass through our rural gently rolling hills. A route map is available from Adventure Cycling (Map 12). On this site you’ll find local services to make your journey more enjoyable. We wish you a safe and pleasant ride!
