Breakaway RVA community bike ride getting ready to hit the road again

Take a ride with friends and make bunch of new ones.




If you have a bike or even a bike riding friend you’ve probably heard about Breakaway RVA. If you know all about it, stop reading now and go register for the next ride which is taking place on September 22nd.

If you’re not in the know here’s the lowdown: At the “go register” link above, you’ll find five neighborhood options. What you won’t find is any information about where you start or where you go. The mystery is all part of the fun. On the day of the ride (September 22nd) riders get a magical email that tells them where to show up. Upon arrival, you’ll be welcomed by a ride leader and he or she will guide you and your fellow riders to another top secret location. At that location, yet more top secret fun will occur.

Last time they got to chill and talk bikes and beer with the Governor. The pictures you see are from that ride and taken by the official photographer of the Governor’s Office Michale White.

Everyone that I’ve talked to that has participated has had a blast and the number of participants is growing every ride.

Besides having fun Breakaway RVA has the very real and serious goal of changing Richmond from a car-centric city to a more diverse bike friendly city. You can read the full mission or go with the short version.

Denver Cruisers + Richmond hosting the 2015 UCI Road World Champions + the need to advocate for a bike friendly city + 7 Richmonders  + lots of drinks and planning = Breakaway RVA.
