B Pace 7:30 am 104 miles VA Capital Trail
The Virginia Capital Trail (VCT), fully completed as of Fall 2015, is an amazing cycling destination! It has dozens of beautiful bridges, passes through scenic woods and farmlands, and is nicely paved the entire way. On this TBA ride, we will cycle the entire 52 miles of the VCT from Jamestown to Richmond, eat lunch at the end of the trail in Richmond at "Bottoms Up Pizza" (excellent pizza, burgers, sandwiches, etc.), then cycle the 52-mile trail back to Jamestown (104 miles total). Restrooms, water, and convenience stores are located along the trail, and are listed on the Cue Sheet (available using links below – hardcopies will also be provided at the ride start).
To allow time for sign-in and pre-ride briefing, please plan to arrive by no later than 7:15 a.m., to be ready for a 7:30 a.m. start.
Remember to Bring:
Bike Helmet – helmets are required on all TBA rides; no helmet = no ride!
Bike Lock – to lock up your bike at the lunch stop
Front & Rear Lights – we should finish before dark, but bring lights just in case – the trail is not lit and wooded sections could get very dark later in the day
Money $$ – for lunch at "Bottoms Up Pizza" at the at the halfway point (end of the trail) in Richmond
Snacks for along the route – there is no SAG for this ride
