The TransAmerica Trail is a biking tradition, spanning from Yorktown, Virginia in the east to Astoria, Oregon in the west. It is over 4,000 miles long and crosses 10 states in the process. Although it is not necessary to bike the entire trail, which takes bikers on average around 3 months, it's customary to ride a small part in Yorktown to be part of the history of the trail. Beautiful scenery abounds, and if you feel like exercise, it is a great way to see rural Virginia.
