Routes

Around Mathews, all roads lead to water… and you will see a lot of it on this ride!  Whatever route you choose will take you off the main road to the nooks and crannies of our little town – to the places the residents visit for quiet reflection, fun and adventure or even a bit of snuggle time with our sweeties.  Enjoy the ride; our special places are waiting!

The starting point for all routes is Thomas Hunter Middle School, 387 Church Street, Mathews, VA.  Each route has SAG support, signage, and a Rest Stop with ample food, drink, and potties.
