Virginia Creeper Trail: Hints and Hacks!

To break up a long drive from Richmond to Nashville, I want to spend a day biking the Virginia Creeper Trail! I've researched it online and read about shuttles and restaurants along the way, but it's difficult to pinpoint how far and few between they are.
I will be cycling alone and would love to attempt to do the whole trail, but I would be okay with only seeing some of it if I can't make the whole thing. I'm 27 and an intermediate cyclist in decent shape. I've heard how busy it gets, and I am planning to ride it on a weekday.
Can you suggest a specific route if I am planning to do the whole trail, but that also lets me see the best scenery and have the best ride if I can only do, say, 2/3 of it? Any specific restaurants that I must try? How far apart are shuttle pickups?
Any great hotels or B&Bs nearby that don't break the bank that you can recommend?
I'll most likely be riding on Thursday, August 4th.
Thanks so much, guys!
