WAB is once again organizing an overnight ride to Richmond! We will ride up the VCT to Richmond on Monday, spend the night, and then ride back Tuesday.

This year, as in 2016, some members of the Harrisburg Bicycle Club will be joining us! For those of you starting from Jamestown, you will be going over 106 miles in two days! For those of you starting at Charles City, you will be riding over 64 miles in two days!  Please plan to ride the distance you think you can cover over two days. We will not have a SAG vehicle.

Here are the details:

  • Date: Monday, 10/29 – Tuesday, 10/30/2018
  • Lodging Location: Holiday Inn Express, 201 E Cary St., Richmond Va. Twenty rooms are reserved under WAB.
  • Cost: $121.00 per night plus tax ($137.00) for a single or double occupancy room.

Specify when you reserve either a King or two Doubles. A hot breakfast is included. You can cancel a reservation up to 6:00PM on Saturday 10/27.

Start Location 1: Jamestown Marina parking lot, 9:00 AM start time. A luggage vehicle will be available to load from 8:30-9:00 AM. Your luggage will be waiting for you inside the Marina building when you return on Tuesday.
Start Location 2: Charles City, 10:30 AM start time. After we see the interest level for a Charles City start point we will sort out the parking area. Last year we used the Sheriff’s office parking lot.
Luggage transport: I will be asking a few people that are not riding to transport our luggage. Please keep in mind the limitations of space and bring just enough clothing/personal items for one night.
Dinner: There are many great restaurants within walking distance of the hotel – information will be provided to all attendees.
New this year, you can now take your bike on Amtrak between Williamsburg and Richmond Main Street station. The next day you could take Amtrak with your bicycle back home to Williamsburg. A reservation with Amtrak is required.
