    Thumbs up Tour de Virgina Ride

    Tour de Virginia
    Saturday September 12, 2009

    125 mile ride from the Willoughby Boat Ramp (near the Hampton Bridge/Tunnel), heading west by the Naval Base, south down the Elizabeth River to Downtown Norfolk, southeast to the Great Bridge Lock, east through the intracoastal waterway (ICW), then south again to the VA/NC stateline. From there another 20 miles south via Currituck Sound to the Coinjock Marina & Restaurant (http://www.coinjockmarina.com/restaurant.php) for gas and lunch, then return. There's plenty of pier parking for the skis just feet from the restaurant.

    0730 Start of ride (needs to be early to secure first come/first serve weekend parking at Willoughby Boat Ramp and make a timely Great Bridge Lock opening)
    0930 Arrive Great Bridge Lock (GBL) for bottom-of-the-hour opening
    1000 Depart GBL 1130 Arrive Coinjock NC (lunch & fuel at Coinjock Marina & Restaurant)
    1300 Depart Coinjock NC
    1500 Arrive GBL for top-of-the-hour opening
    1530 Depart GBL
    1700 End of Ride

    Dang that's a nice long ride. Id love to ride but would hate to have any trouble on the way. I'll consider taking my GPR as I really have wanted to do a long ride like this.

    if i were to do this ride, do you recommend strapping on a jug of gas to the ski? i've never done a ride this long before, and am somewhat interested.

    Gas really shouldnt be much of an issue unless your ski is a true gas guzzler. I thought about bringing just oil for when I make it to coinjock.

    I figured I would fill back up about 1/2 way there at the GBL. I should have around a 1/2 a tank of gas left with that being based off how long I have riding the jet ski before.

    Thumbs up Schedule Changes

    Hello Everyone,

    I just wanted everyone who may have looked at the Tour De Virgina Ride at some point thus far to aware of some changes that have been made as to launch time and arrival times at different points in the trip. Also I have made the cut off date for the ride attendance list to Sept 8th which is next Tuesday.

    Thanks
