Description

The second annual Bike Your Park Day will take place on September 30, 2017 to encourage and promote bicycling in parks and public lands. September 30 is also National Public Lands Day, and Adventure Cycling encourages Bike Your Park Day participants to engage in a stewardship project as part of their Bike Your Park Day ride. The idea is to inspire people across the country to discover nearby parks and public lands by bicycle on the same day to promote bicycling as a healthy, sustainable way to travel and recreate.  In 2016, over 11,000 people participated in more than 1,400 rides in all 50 states and over 10 countries.

WAB will participate in this event by riding to some of the great parks in our area.  We’ll start at Chickahominy Riverfront Park and ride either 26 or 34 miles on JCC roads and the Virginia Capital Trail. The 26-mile route C-Pace led by Deana Sun will visit Veterans Park and Freedom Park. The 34-mile B-Pace route led by Rick Nevins will visit Freedom Park and Little Creek Park.
