RVA Named Top City To Explore By Bike

Big news, RVA! The mighty mighty Buzzfeed has named Richmond a top city to explore on two wheels – aka by bike!

Biker does a flip on Brown's Island“Sightseeing in a car? Meh. Sightseeing on a bike? Life changing.” Buzzfeed is on to something! Cars move too fast for worthwhile sight seeing!  In a car, sure, you’d see that our trees are blooming but you couldn’t take in the full glory of each dogwood, redbud, and cherry tree in spring. In a car you might get the feeling that Carytown has some great new shops to explore but you’d be stuck finding parking when you’d really rather be window shopping!

If you want to explore a city, getting on your bike is the way to do it! And we’re stoked that Buzzfeed knows we’re a city worth exploring!

Who else made the list? We’re in good company. Austin, Texas. Boston, Massachusetts. Minneapolis, Minnesota. Ann Arbor, Michigan. And others. But with the UCI 2015 World Road Championships coming our way, Richmond gets special billing on this list. “The whole world is about to see what an amazing biking city Richmond truly is.”

We agree!

Want to do some exploring of your own? Richmond is a mecca for urban mountain biking and an easy town to run your errands in by bike.

Congrats, RVA. The internet is hip to our game!
