There is no better way to explore the Eastern Shore of Virginia than by bike. The Between the Waters Bike Tour is sponsored by Citizens for a Better Eastern Shore (CBES)and winds through interesting historic towns and communities and along back roads to scenic rest stops that overlook the Atlantic seaside and the Chesapeake Bay. The Bike Tour is scheduled for the 4th Saturday in October with start/finish locations rotating between Wachapreague, Nassawadox, Onancock and Cape Charles.
This one day bike tour is an ecotourism event for CBES, a non-profit organization serving Northampton and Accomack counties, and the Between the Waters Bike Tour is one of the major fundraisers of the year for this group. With very little vehicle traffic, the ride is sure to be relaxed and peaceful as well as easygoing because of the flat terrain. Snack and drink stops are provided and a complimentary picnic lunch is served.
Riders have a choice of either 20, 40, 60 or 100-mile routes with staggered start times.
Riders come from the Tidewater region as well as from North Carolina, Maryland and the D.C. area. Word has gotten out that it’s a good ride through some beautiful countryside. There is more to the Eastern Shore than just Route 13.
Come for the day or enjoy the Shore for the weekend. CBES
offers a Friday afternoon guided fun ride that usually
has a 10 and 20 mile route for riders to enjoy. There
are many lodging
choices available from the quaint B&Bs
in several of our towns, warm and friendly hotels and motels
as well as rental houses.
