The word is spreading - May is Bike Month is here!  Three Williamsburg Area Transit Authority buses are proclaiming so it must be true! 

For several years, a course in bicycle safety, maintenance, and proper biking technique has been taught at William and Mary through Kinesiology. It is an eight-week Physical Activity course students can take for one credit, pass-fail. It is taught by Allen Turnbull, a League of American Bicyclists Certified Trainer (LCI) assisted by Mary Turnbull. Bill Horacio, Director of Parking and Transportation and Services at W&M coordinates this course with the W&M Bike Alliance. Over 80 students have graduated from this course and are practicing safe cycling behavior and spreading the word about the joys of biking. Here are the latest graduates!

Governor Terry McAuliffe has proclaimed May 2017 as National Bike Month.

The Proclamation was presented to cyclists assembled on the Capitol Ground in Richmond May 4.

Have you noticed the safety improvements for pedestrians and cyclists at the Jamestown Road/Rt 199 intersection? The bold reflective crosswalk striping is now installed, plus signs on the signal posts saying “Turning Vehicles Yield to Pedestrians”. There is also a new Bike/Ped Caution sign. Thanks go out to Rossie Carrol, VDOT Resident Engineer and the City of Williamsburg for listening and responding to our requests. This was one of BikeWalk Williamsburg’s priorities.
