Cyclists enjoy a ride from Williamsburg to Ashfield and back

Nine cyclists shared a beautiful day together for a recreational 31-mile group ride from Williamsburg up to Ashfield, through Conway, and back. The route passed through stunning Chapel Falls, and meandered along quaint streams and expansive reservoirs. There was plenty of shade and several rest stops, including one at Elmer's store in Ashfield. At the conclusion of the ride, many riders celebrated and socialized over lunch at The Brewmaster's Tavern before heading home.
