      2017 Old Dominion Ride - Welcome!

      Sanctioning: We are again sanctioned with:

      • AERC
      • ECTRA
      • SERA

      Camp opening and closing: Camp will open at ​9AM on Wednesday, June ​7th​, and will close at noon on Monday, June 1​2th​. If you need to arrive earlier or stay later, please contact ride management ahead of time.

      Directions to Base camp:

      • Coming from the North on I-81 South, take Exit 273 (Mt. Jackson), take a right at the top of the ramp onto Mt. Jackson Rd. Go to the T, take a left onto Rte 614 for 1.1 miles, then a right (west) onto Rt 263 (Orkney Grade). Stay on 263 for about 11 miles, taking it slow on the winding, downhill grade as you enter Orkney Springs. As the grade levels out, take your first left onto Happy Valley Road (there’s board fence on your left as you approach the turn, and a cluster of white buildings directly beyond the turn). Go ½ mile; turn right at right hand bend in road, go to the end of the base camp field and turn left into the driveway to camp.
      • Coming from the South on I-81 North, take Exit 269 (to avoid traffic in Mount Jackson), turn right off exit ramp and then left onto Rte 11 North, continue about 2 miles, then turn left onto Rte 263, following this road about 11 miles until you reach Orkney Springs. Follow the above directions from that point.

      Base camp address and phone number: The base camp is located at 1794 Happy Valley Road, Orkney Springs, VA 22845. Phone is 540 856-3528. There is no cell service in Orkney Springs, but there is at the Community Store in Basye.

      ​Thursday evening will once again feature a pot luck dinner, with the OD supplying meats and condiments, and others bringing a dish to share.

      • The 25 ​& 50 ​ mile entry fee includes Friday dinner and Saturday’s continental breakfast.
      • 100 mile entry fees include Friday dinner, Saturday’s continental breakfast, and the Sunday awards brunch. ​
      Ride entry includes Friday night's dinner for ​ALL ​riders. Extra meal tickets must be purchased for crew and friends

      Saturday's dinner IS NOT included in the ride entry. We need a head count (pre-purchased tickets) to know how many grilled chickens to order. In the past we grilled hamburgers as people came up so a head count was not important.

      Included in 100 miler ride entry. Everyone else must purchase meal tickets for the brunch.
