Storming of Thunder Ridge
May 20, 2018
Storming of Thunder Ridge is Lynchburg, Virginia’s only local, fully-supported road cycling event. With the Blue Ridge Mountains as your backdrop, there’s a ride for everyone: 27, 45, 47 (The Mountain Only), 75 and 100 mile options.
The Storming of Thunder Ridge Bicycle Ride is a fund-raiser benefiting the YMCA of Central Virginia’s Annual Fund.
Unlike any other organization in the world and for more than 160 years, the YMCA of Central Virginia has embraced the idea of strength in spirit, mind, and body for people of all ages, faiths, backgrounds and income levels. No one is turned away from YMCA programs or services due to an inability to pay
This year’s ride START/FINISH is once again at the Jamerson Family YMCA.
Riders can take advantage of all our amenities: shower facilities, whirlpool, and swimming pools. So bring your swimsuit!!! We do NOT have a towel service, so please bring your own towel and a lock for your belongings. Many riders love to tailgate with their friends and have a relaxing celebration outside.
Our post-ride celebration will include lots of food with plenty of time to relax and enjoy your accomplishments with all your cycling friends.
