VDOT recently announced that the portion of US Bicycle Route 1 in Northern Virginia has been signed. This fills the last gap making US Bike Routes 1 and 76 fully signed in Virginia.
US Bicycle Route 1 was established in 1982, and, when completed, it will run approximately 1,525 miles from Florida to Maine. It is part of the United States Bicycle Route System, a network of long-distance cycling routes that include shared roadways, on-road accommodations, and off-road shared use paths.
Bike Route 1 in Virginia follows a similar path as the East Coast Greenway. It is approximately 274 miles long and traverses 21 Virginia localities, including 14 counties, three independent cities, and four incorporated towns.
