National Bike to Work Day

As many of you are already aware, May is National Bike Month... and tomorrow, Friday May 20, is National Bike to Work Day! So tonight, pump up those tires, oil those chains, and dust off those helmets, cause the forecast for tomorrow looks like it'll be the perfect day for a ride!

If you're a less experienced rider and would feel more comfortable riding to work in a group, well then you're in luck! There are organized rides taking place at six locations across the city, which will depart at 6:30 am and arrive at Monroe Park at 7:15 am. Mayor Dwight Jones will then speak and lead a group ride to the Capital! Please see this flyer for more information on the group rides. A special thank you to Ride Richmond for making this available!

And as always, if you're out of practice its a great idea to brush up on your bicycle etiquette before you embark on any two-wheeled journey. Ride safe!

Feel free to share your experiences on National Bike to Work Day in the comments section!
