On Friday, May 1, Virginia Bicycling Federation board members, BikeWalk Virginia members, and bike club representatives from throughout Virginia will convene in Richmond’s Capitol Square at 9:00am, to receive the Governor’s Bike Month Proclamation and ride the document back to their home communities. As in previous years, the group will meet in the Belle Isle parking lot, just west of the Tredegar Iron Works National Park Service Visitors Center on Tredegar St., to leave at 8:30 and ride over to the Capitol Bell Tower, which is at 9th and Franklin.
Directions: to parking lot — 5th St. comes down the hill to Tredegar, and then right on Tredegar to the parking lot, which is almost under the Lee Bridge.
Depending on the interests of the group, we will then decide which ride we will do after the Proclamation Ceremony. Tidewater Bicycle Association members will attend the ceremony and ride the document back to Virginia Beach, Portsmouth, and Norfolk, for presentation to mayors and city council. Blue Ridge Bicycle Club members will ride the document to Roanoke.
