The City of Williamsburg has been designated at Bicycle Friendly Community by the League of American Bicyclists (LAB).  It must re-apply every four years, and with its current application the City is hoping to move up from Bronze to Silver level status.

We need your help! Please complete the on-line survey to help LAB gain a better understanding of local bicyclists' experiences in Williamsburg.

Remember that this survey pertains to bicycling conditions in the City of Williamsburg, not necessarily James City County and York County.  The 16 question survey is quick and easy to complete. Enter Williamsburg as the community. THANKS!

On a rainy day last Tuesday, August 29 Richmond rolled out its new "RVA Bike Share" program.  Two hundred and twenty bikes are docked at 20 stations around the central downtown area.  Two new stations will be operational at VCU soon.

Mayor Levar Stoney touted RVA Bike Share as a low-cost, environmentally-friendly way for tourists and locals to explore the city.

"We want to be a place that no matter who you are, what neighborhood you come from, that you can have a high quality of life in the city of Richmond, and this provides that," Stoney said.

Bikes equipped with pedal assist (E-Bikes), which gives riders an extra boost when needed, will be added in the coming months. Williamsburg is currently exploring various options for bike sharing.

Congratulations to Katie Staker for successfully completing the Bike Rodeo May 20 held at Williamsburg Recreation Center.

She was the winner of a $330 Gift Certificate from Bikes Unlimited.  Happy and safe summer cycling to all of the children who attended the Bike Rodeo!

Due to the efforts of BikeWalk Williamsburg and several friends of the VCT, the Jamestown kiosk now has a Fixit Station. Ted Hanson, Dean Dunbar, Don Grosse, and Neal Robinson combined their talents to make it happen. Now there is an air pump with a gauge, a stand, and tools to make minor adjustment on your bike. Do you have the recommended tire pressure in your tires? It will make your ride on the VCT a breeze!
