RVA Bike Month 2017: Fall in Love with Bike Lanes

RVA Bike Month, presented by Bon Secours, is BACK for its fourth year in the Richmond region! Here are the ways you can make the most of it!

1) Come out to every event you can! There’s something for everyone in Richmond, Henrico, Chesterfield, and Hanover/Ashland!
2) Invite your friends!
3) Participate in the National Bike Challenge! Click here to link your Strava (which you’ll need to download first – it’s free!)
4) Post about how much fun you’re having! Use #rvabike, #rvabikemonth, and tag Bike Walk RVA (@bikewalkrva) on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram! There will be prizes throughout the month for best posts and photos, so STAY TUNED!
5) Take our Vision Zero Pledge, and share with everyone you know! Click here.
6) Keep checking back here as events are updated, added, or modified (because sometimes it rains).
