Richmond, VA, March 05, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- The Virginia Capital Trail Foundation is pleased to announce that the annual Cap2Cap (Capital to Capital) Bike Ride will be held on Saturday, May 8th starting at 7:30am. The Ride is one of the fastest growing cycling events in Central Virginia and the ride supports the Virginia Capital Trail Foundation in its mission to make the Virginia Capital Trail a world-class adventure. Take in Virginia’s most stunning scenery while pedaling through 400 years of history. And thanks to extensive support from the Richmond and Williamsburg bike clubs, find friendly and knowledgeable volunteers ensuring a great day on the road.
Choose a route of 25, 50 or 100 miles; then choose a starting location of downtown Richmond along the James River in the Rocketts Landing village, or beside the beautiful Chickahominy River at James City County’s Chickahominy Riverfront Park. Both offer exciting and beautiful scenery for your mass start, and a whole lot of fanfare.
Ride through one of the oldest inland routes of commerce in the New World as you meander through Charles City County. Take in the abundant beauty as your cue sheet sends you through Civil War battlefields, underneath the generous tree canopy along Route 5, and across farmland that remains largely unchanged since our country’s colonial days. As you ride, you will see portions of the beautiful Virginia Capital Trail currently under construction between Richmond and Williamsburg.
Registration is now open online at ww.virginiacapitaltrail.org.
