Routes / Re: New York - Virgina Beach

Hi all,

Many thanks for all your suggestions (and apologies for my delay in response!) I spent ages trying to remember the forum I'd joined for advice!

Based largely on your advice - I've elected to simply travel from NYC to DC via coach and rather go for a stretch of DC down to Virginia Beach (via Richmond).

As DC - Richmond involves Cycle Route 1, it seems relatively straightforward. My one big question though, is that I did a standard google maps cycling directions from one to the other and the only real difference is that google suggested this:,+VA,+USA/Richmond,+VA,+USA/@38.2102034,-77.3955962,12z/data=!4m14!4m13!1m5!1m1!1s0x89b6c1ebbaeae025:0x7fa6450a21a691a1!2m2!1d-77.4605399!2d38.3031837!1m5!1m1!1s0x89b111095799c9ed:0xbfd83e6de2423cc5!2m2!1d-77.4360481!2d37.5407246!3e1

As you can see it suggests going down the 301 - which is fine (in fact it's ideal, it is a very long straight piece of road!!) But I'm having a hard time working out if bikes are allowed?

It knocks a decent wedge of miles off the ride - so was curious as to whether I could or not.

As ever, if you have any suggestions/advice/experience between the two, I am all ears - particularly Richmond to Virginia Beach.

Many thanks again - you're all seriously kind and helpful people!

Hi everyone,

Apologies for the ignorance - first time poster and a newbie to cycling in the States (I hail from the UK).

Visiting NYC in March and then planning on cycling down to relatives in Norfolk, Virginia. I've tried to do what research I can, but outside of really rough routes and google maps, I'm struggling.

Planning on doing it in 5 days:

Day 1 - NYC to King of Prussia/Conshohocken
Day 2 - KoP to Aberdeen, MD
Day 3 - Aberdeen to DC, (avoiding Baltimore)
Day 4 - DC to Richmond
Day 5 - Richmond to Virginia Beach

Averages about 100 miles a day. Any thoughts/suggestions? Finding suggested stopping places/routes online is proving pretty difficult - open to anything at this stage!
