The Storming of Thunder Ride is an annual cycling event in the heartland of central Virginia. Hosted by the YMCA of Central Virginia, this bike event holds five distances for every level at 27, 45, 49, and 100 miles, respectively. “The longer 75 & 100-mile routes test rider stamina with a 13-mile ascent to Apple Orchard Mountain, the highest peak of the Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia. The 100-mile route boasts over 9000 feet of climbing for an epic day in the saddle.” The event is very popular and annually attracts up to 1,000 participants. The storming of Thunder Ridge is one of the best cycling events in the mid-Atlantic region.
