One of the region’s biggest cycling events, the Virginia Credit Union Cap2Cap presented by Dominion Energy, is back for its 18th year on May 12 and 13.

Participants will enjoy breathtaking views on a fully supported course as they roll along the scenic Virginia Capital Trail, a 51.7-mile paved trail stretching from Williamsburg to Richmond. With multiple distances ranging from a 7–mile family fun ride to 100+ miles, the event is perfect for any age or fitness level. Other features include furnished rest stops, SAG and tech support, party zones, and 2-day, virtual, and shuttle options.

“We are honored to work alongside Virginia Credit Union, Dominion Energy, and other partners to introduce new offerings this year while continuing to create a unique experience for our riders that showcases the beauty of the Virginia Capital Trail and brings the whole community together,” shares Cat Anthony, Executive Director of the Virginia Capital Trail Foundation.

The family-friendly event also features a flexible open-start format, course support, restrooms, sample ride itineraries, and on-site packet pick-ups. A post-ride celebration will take place at Chickahominy Riverfront Park in Williamsburg on Friday, May 12, and at Dorey Park on Saturday, May 13. There will be food, beverages, music, games, and local vendors. Cyclists can customize their rides by selecting their own starting and ending locations, routes, and ride days. Additional registration perks include an event bib, t-shirt, lunch, beverage tickets, and a Cap2Cap SWAG bag.

New features include a shuttle package for half-century riders, specialty rest stops (featuring Ukrop’s cookies, Pickle Juice, & Breez-In potato wedges), and group ride information with local cycling organizations. The distance options are the Cap Trail Century Ride, Half Century, Allianz Partners Quarter Century, Sentara Family Fun Ride, and a Redmond Asset Management 2-Day Challenge. Event proceeds support the work of the Virginia Capital Trail Foundation.
