    B Pace          7:30 am       104 miles        VA Capital Trail

    The Virginia Capital Trail (VCT), fully completed as of Fall 2015, is an amazing cycling destination!  It has dozens of beautiful bridges, passes through scenic woods and farmlands, and is nicely paved the entire way.  On this TBA ride, we will cycle the entire 52 miles of the VCT from Jamestown to Richmond, eat lunch at the end of the trail in Richmond at "Bottoms Up Pizza" (excellent pizza, burgers, sandwiches, etc.), then cycle the 52-mile trail back to Jamestown (104 miles total).  Restrooms, water, and convenience stores are located along the trail, and are listed on the Cue Sheet (available using links below – hardcopies will also be provided at the ride start).

    To allow time for sign-in and pre-ride briefing, please plan to arrive by no later than 7:15 a.m., to be ready for a 7:30 a.m. start.

      Remember to Bring:

    • Bike Helmet – helmets are required on all TBA rides;  no helmet = no ride!
    • Bike Lock – to lock up your bike at the lunch stop  
    • Money $$ – for lunch at "Bottoms Up Pizza" at the at the halfway point (end of the trail) in Richmond
    • Snacks for along the route – there is no SAG for this ride
    • Front & Rear Lights – (optional, but always a good idea to have

    TBA Celebration Ride & Social

    Current and past TBA members and supporters are invited to join us for one final ride and social event to celebrate TBA's 50+ years of service to the bicycle community.

    Come ride the 23 mile Peter and Gerald Teeuwen "lollipop" and stay around afterwards to visit with your fellow TBA members and volunteers. We encourage everyone to bring a piece of TBA memorabilia from good times past to share including photos, jerseys, tshirts, newspaper articles and so on.

    Riders can depart anytime starting at 9 am at your own pace. Cue sheets can be found here.

    We will have food beginning about 11:00 am (planning is still in the works). Optionally, for those so inclined to bring something, a plate or tray of desserts would be appreciated.

    This event is free, but pre-registration is required in order that we may have an accurate count for food. Registration is also limited due to maximum occupancy restrictions at the Ruritan Hall. 

    Should parking at the Ruritan become full, there is parking at the Walmart up the road, as well as the nearby high school. If needed, we encourage you to park at one of these locations and ride your bike on over to the Ruritan Club.

    We hope to see you on May 5th!!!
