Description:  Mostly open but with some hills, this ride takes you through the countryside on both sides of the James River.  The route is the same as the western section of the James Valley Loop route.  The long route goes through the Yogaville Satchidananda Ashram with its striking domed shrine.  You can visit the shrine by taking a 1-mile side trip; follow the signs when you reach Yogaville (just past the left turn onto Route 604 at mile 22.3).
