Fall Foliage Bike Festival

Hundreds of people from all over the country came out to Staunton on Saturday, for a bike ride.

The 17th annual Fall Foliage Bike Festival treated cycling enthusiasts to the best of what the Valley has to offer.

The group started at Shelborne Middle School and made their way along several different courses, ranging from five to 100 miles, in less than eight hours.

Bob Leftwich, owner of the Bike Stop, helped set up the event, and he says that it didn't matter how old you were, as long as you could ride a bike.

"Oh, you're going to be seeing all kinds of cool roads that you'll going through, natural chimney's, your going to be seeing all of the fall foliage, and some of the great, it's a lot of hills out here, a lot of mountains, so you get a taste of all that," says Leftwich.

Several families arrived in the Queen City Friday, and some tents were flipped because of the wind Friday night. That kind of wind might have also played a factor on the bike course.
