The new home of the 9th annual Northern Neck River Ride is Belle Isle State Park, with 739 acres, and seven miles of shoreline along the Rappahannock River. The park lets you explore a wide variety of tidal wetlands interspersed with farmland and upland forests. It has a campground, three picnic shelters, hiking, biking and bridle trails, and motor boat and car-top launches. Belle Isle also offers overnight lodging at Bel Air and the Bel Air Guest House.  Canoe, kayak and motorboat rentals are available. Riders will enjoy the park's universal access playground, boardwalk and fishing pier, plus the Ride's extra special activities. Our family ride will be routed within the park itself.

The diverse habitats found in the park provide homes to many predator birds, such as blue herons, osprey, hawks and bald eagles. White-tailed deer, turkeys, groundhogs, rabbits, squirrels, moles, reptiles and amphibians are also common. There are eight distinct types of wetlands within the park. These diverse ecosystems make Belle Isle an excellent place to begin our 2014 ride.
