Some of our events have free bike repair or information about safe biking (in a pandemic and in traffic) to get you ready to go for the beginning of bike season.
2) Check each event’s details! and information at Weather updates and rescheduling will also be posted here. Make sure to read the safety disclaimer at the bottom of the page.
3) Take fun pics and tag #rvabikemonth for a chance to win a prize!
4) Bike to Work! Bike to Work Day is back, and we’re planning for a special tour this year.
5) Explore, patronize, and tag local businesses! Show them some love and thank them for supporting your ride.
6) Try something new! Seek out a new bike lane. Find some new riding friends. Explore an unfamiliar part of the region.
