*Motorcycle event may cause traffic delays on Monday

By Alex Bridges -- abridges@nvdaily.com

WINCHESTER -- Motorists can expect delays as a motorcycle group travels through Frederick County late Monday morning, authorities warn.

Participants in the Kyle Petty Charity Ride plan to enter Virginia from West Virginia via Northwestern Pike (U.S. 50 West) at about 11 a.m., according Lt. Mike Richardson, traffic safety coordinator with the Frederick County Sheriff's Office.

Richardson said he expects close to 400 motorcyclists in the ride.

County officers will escort riders east on Northwestern Pike to the 7-Eleven at Botanical Boulevard for a fuel stop scheduled at about 11:15 a.m., Richardson said. After the stop, riders plan to travel to Grove's Harley Davidson, 100 Independence Drive, off Millwood Pike (U.S. 50 East).

Deputies will close Northwestern Pike eastbound from the 7-Eleven to the Va. 37 interchange and the northbound ramp, Richardson said. Motorcyclists will take Va. 37 northbound to the U.S. 11 interchange, then travel I-81 south to Exit 313, then head east on Millwood Pike to the dealership, according to Richardson. The group then plans to take Millwood Pike through Clarke County to U.S. 17 and Interstate 66.

The charity ride begins Saturday in Lake Placid, N.Y. and is scheduled to end May 13 at Amelia Island, Fla. Participants travel from Farmington, Pa., to Irvington, Va., on Monday.
