The City of Richmond has added bikelanes to the Second Street connector of US Bike Route 1 where the route enters downtown Richmond. Though only .3 miles long, this scenic section of the route connects to US 1/301 and crosses the James River, passing by the historic, Tredegar Iron Works, Belle Isle and the Virginia War Memorial.
USBR 1 is the major, east coast, on-road route running from Maine to Florida.
