2019 Gran Fondo Alleghany Event Registration

Directions

To Registration and Start (Covington)

From I-64, take Exit 14, VA-154, toward Covington/Hot Springs. At the end of the ramp, make a left onto VA-154 North (S. Craig St.). After 1.2 miles, make a right onto W. Locust St. Take the second left onto N. Lexington Av. Then, take the first right onto Main St. The Covington Farmer’s Market is at the end of the block, just across from the intersection with Monroe Av. There is on-street parking as well as a free municipal lot.

To Shuttle Parking (Clifton Forge)

From I-64, take Exit 27 (U.S. 60 Business). Take U.S. 60 towards Clifton Forge. After 2.2 miles, you will bear left onto Keswick St. (staying on U.S. 60 Business). After bearing left onto Keswick, take the first right onto Rose Av. (tight turn – less than 90 degrees). The Rose Av. lot will be a short distance on your right, at the intersection of Rose Av. and Church St.  Signs will be posted.

Event Parking and Shuttle Service

The Gran Fondo Alleghany begins in Covington, and finishes in Clifton Forge, VA, 12 miles distant. To encourage participation in the post-ride block party (and to avoid a weary ride back to your car), we request that riders park in a designated parking lot in Clifton Forge, close to the finish.

Shuttle buses will run from the parking lot in Clifton Forge to the start in Covington on Saturday morning from 6:00 AM to 9:30 AM. Buses will depart approximately every 10-15 minutes. The buses are not equipped to carry bicycles, so please make use of the bike valet in Covington, which is available for overnight storage on Friday night (you may drop off your bike after number pick-up), or for temporary storage on Saturday morning (6:30-9:30).

Bike Valet is in Patsy's Dance Studio, just down the block from the Covington Farmer’s Market. Bicycles checked in at the school will be protected by an overnight armed security guard and the building will be under extra patrol by the Covington Police.
