The Surry Scenic Bikeway, in the Yadkin Valley wine region of northwest North Carolina, has more than 500 miles of officially designated routes. Most are rural loops, taking advantage of Surry County’s rolling terrain in the foothills of the Blue Ridge.
The Surry Scenic Bikeway was created for avid cyclists. It follows roadways that vary from mostly flat to hilly, with a few mountainous sections for the more adventurous riders. A few loops offer an alternate route that bisects the circuit to shorten the mileage.
Experience distinctive flavors of the Surry County Wine Trail along the bikeway. Many wineries are accessible, including Carolina Heritage Winery, Old North State Winery, Pilot Mountain Vineyards, Rayson Winery, and Shelton Vineyards. Cyclists can also sample several breweries such as White Elephant Beer Company, Skull Camp Brewery, Thirsty Souls Brewing, and Angry Troll Brewing.
During or after your ride, enjoy several great restaurants in Mount Airy, Elkin, Pilot Mountain, and Dobson. Alternatively, you can stop at several places along the routes to rest and picnic at Fisher River Park, Elkin Community Park, Armfield Recreation Center, Riverside Park, Pilot Mountain State Park, and the Historic Village of Rockford.
