Section 12 of the TransAm Trail begins in Christiansburg. Most of the roads through the Appalachians of central Virginia are narrow. After the town of Vesuvius, there is a four-mile climb onto the Blue Ridge Parkway. The hills continue along the Parkway. No commercial traffic is allowed and the speed limit of 45 mph is strictly enforced. There are, however, no shoulders and there are a great number of recreational vehicles. After leaving the parkway, the gently rolling hills of the Tidewater are well-suited for cycling. You'll ride along the Colonial National Historical Park between Williamsburg and Yorktown, the TransAm Trail's ending point.

I only learned to ride a bike three weeks ago. I'm 56. The whole thing is terrifying and astonishing to me. Needless to say, I haven't needed this map yet. But it is stunning nonetheless. You will love these maps.

As always, the map was very good and I would recommend it to others. The only flaw was in getting onto the Colonial Parkway just outsidce Jamestown. I missed it and still don't know how. It wasn't clear, that that needs some help.
