Bike Week Begins

21 Apr

Organized by RideRichmond with help from VCU and others, Bike Week gets off to a great start today with a couple of rides in conjunction with Earth Day festivities in Richmond.  Go by RideRichmond’s table down in Manchester, and join them for a family fun ride at 4!  Click here for a full calendar of Bike Week events through next weekend.

Look for updates coming soon on National Bike Month (May) in Richmond too.  In case this seems confusing, Bike Week is held before Bike Month because by May the college students in the area are in the throes of final exams.  Here’s a little taste of what’s coming:

• Richmond Bike Commuter Challenge — participants who register and bike to work in May will be entered in a drawing for a new bike!

National Bike Challenge — May through August.  The more you ride, the better the prizes are.

• National Bike to Work Day Rally May 18 in Monroe Park

National Bike to School Day May 9 (if you know of any activities being held at your school, please let me know, or consider getting some other parents and kids together to ride yourself!)
