Round Up:

February RoundUp and March Preview

Thanks to the James River Association for sponsoring our February Green Drinks…or more appropriately, Snow Drinks! Despite the cold and the snow, we had a great group with plenty of new faces. And Justin Doyle of the James River Association discussed public river access work in which the organization is currently involved. JRA is working with partners throughout the James River watershed to establish and enhance public river access sites. Ryan Abrahamsen of Terrain360 also presented the new virtual tour of the James River. Definitely check out the views on their website–pretty cool stuff! Let’s keep our fingers crossed for a warmer March because you won’t want to miss this one. We’ve got an incredible bike-themed lineup for next month. Put this on your calendars now. Thursday, March 19 5:30-7:30 pm

Location: The Urban Farmhouse in Scott’s Addition–3015 Norfolk Street

This event will include presentations by:

Monica Callahan at Richmond 2015 Alicia Zatcoff, Richmond’s Sustainability Manager Brantley Tyndall from Bike Walk RVA And volunteers from RideRichmond

We will hear about the UCI World Championships coming to Richmond in September as well as biking advocacy work in and around the city. If you bike, if you support bikers or if you just think bikes are cool join is in March! RideRichmond is a 501(c)3 non-profit community organization focusing on charitable and educational programs through hosting events, activities, and rides in the Richmond area. Its board of certified cycling instructors teaches a variety of classes, advocates for safer biking laws in the General Assembly, and acts as a fiscal agent for local cycling initiatives and projects.

Bike Walk RVA, a program of the Sports Backers, builds community and political support to create safe and comfortable places to walk and bike in the Richmond region. BWRVA amplifies community voices to decision makers, coordinates with governmental agencies, and trains advocates to support bike and pedestrian infrastructure.

See you March 19!
