The Bikes Out of Hibernation (BOoH) event has been organized annually since 2017 and is jointly sponsored by WAB and James City County. The event will be held this year on Saturday, May 1st from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm at Chickahominy Riverfront Park. The concept behind BOoH is to encourage residents of the community to dust off their bikes and get them ready for the cycling season. Representatives from the local bike shops will provide free safety checks and minor adjustments. Afterwards, participants are encouraged to takes rides on the Virginia Capital Trail.
WAB volunteers will be needed to assist with parking, info desk, general assistance, bike shop assistance and helmet fitting.

Of course, other "common sense" guidelines also apply:
