RVA Bike Month 2018: Bike to the Future

The 5th Annual RVA Bike Month, presented by Bon Secours, is back! Here’s what to do.

1) Come out to every event you can! There’s something for everyone in Richmond, Henrico, Chesterfield, and Hanover/Ashland!
2) Invite your friends! Share the link
3) RSVP and share our central RVA Bike Month Facebook event for updates and chatting with other riders!
4) Participate in the National Bike Challenge! Click here to link your Strava (which you’ll need to download first – it’s free!)
5) 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!
6) Keep checking back here as events are updated, added, or modified (because sometimes it rains).
7) Volunteer! Either contact an event organizer directly or reach out to us at [email protected]
