Bike Restaurant Week
It is a distinct pleasure of exploring Richmond’s neighborhoods simply by riding one’s bike to a new restaurant there. Most of the time, the ride and the food are great, and one remembers the restaurants and the neighborhoods that provide a great experience – often meaning bike lanes, bike parking, and a fun community spirit.
Now Bike Walk RVA is sharing that experience with you! September 17-21 will be Richmond’s first Bike Restaurant Week, a 5-day promotion with 21 participating restaurants celebrating the 5 cardinal directions of the city. We’ll highlight one direction of town each day and lead a guided bike ride to all the participating restaurants from a central location. No hassles, just new friends and good food! And each restaurant has a discount, deal, special menu item, or other promotion just for you for riding your bike there!
Richmond Bicycle Studio is also offering to help with the rides and to help get your bike ready to go. If you don’t have a bike or if you’re close to one of the stations, RVA Bike Share, which launched in August, might be the perfect ticket for you!
