The Bike Capital of Virginia
FOOD & DRINK
Our city of Harrisonburg has been growing in the last few years like never before, thanks to the Downtown Renaissance. We have 5 breweries, dozens of awesome restaurants, a bike courier food delivery service, amazing shops, fantastic coffee shops, and delicious bakeries!
Harrisonburg has an absolutely amazing bicycle coalition (Shenandoah Valley Bicycle Coalition) dedicated to cycling in Harrisonburg, Staunton, the National Forest, the Western Slope, and the surrounding area. We are so stoked to be members of such an awesome group of people. The coalition hosts annual cycling events, and does so much for our cycling community.

Right inside the city, we have Hillandale Park with over 7 miles of single track, with every level of trail so it is family friendly and great for those looking to challenge their mountain bike skills!
Just a 30 minute drive from the city is the George Washington National Forest with over 100 miles of singletrack and forest roads. One of the biggest local mountain bike races of the year takes place in the national forest - the Shenandoah Mountain 100 - it's an event you don't want to miss!

Where do I ride?
Everyone at the shop is always more than happy to point out trails on our National Geographic Maps (for sale), point you in the right direction on the latest trail apps, or tell you which roads are our favorites!
Rocktown also has a page dedicated to bicycle routes for our area. This page gives you all the info you could need on the route, and gives you a link to be able to download the route for your GPS device OR print out a cue sheet! You can do this on your own at home, or we can get you set up at the shop!
