RVA Bike Month – 2022

The 9th Annual RVA Bike Month is here!

 

Making Connections. We’re talking connecting bike lanes and trails into expansive networks for active transportation so the safe place to bike doesn’t randomly end. We’re talking about the magic of forging new relationships and showing up to help make things happen in our communities. And we’re talking about expanding beyond one bike lane, one trail, or one locality – but instead the big regional picture, connecting every corner of the 804.

1) Get ready! Get your bike tuned up and make sure to read the safety disclaimer at the bottom of the page. If you have any questions, email [email protected]
2) Check each event’s details and information at www.rvabikemonth.com. Updates and rescheduling will also be posted here.
3) Take fun pics and tag #rvabikemonth.
4) Bike to Work! Bike to Work Day is May 20th!
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.
7) Tag @bikewalkrva on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram.
