17th Annual Frank Penello Memorial New Year's Day Ride
Happy New Year!! Get 2015 off to a fun & healthy start! Bring your party noise makers and join us for this fun annual tradition as we go for an enjoyable New Year’s Day ride from Wards Corner to Norfolk Waterside (partly on the Elizabeth River Trail) and back. After the ride, join us for lunch (optional) in Farm Fresh’s deli.
This ride will take us on a journey that includes a variety of interesting sites throughout Norfolk. We’ll cycle through quaint neighborhoods and past numerous landmarks, including the ODU campus, The Hague, the Taiwan Friendship Pavilion, the U.S.S. Wisconsin, Nauticus, the Half Moone Cruise Terminal, Armed Forces Memorial, Town Point Park, Waterside, and the Harrison Opera House. You’d be amazed at how very little vehicular traffic there is out on the roads on New Year’s Day!
