Pedal the Parkway – (FREE) Great Family Friendly Ride!
In celebration of National Parks Week, from April 23 at 7:00 am to April 25 at 8:00 pm, the National Park Service with help from BikeWalk Williamsburg will close 8 miles of the Colonial Parkway to vehicular traffic for the 24th annual Pedal the Parkway. This year will look a little different than before accommodate for COVID-19 safety measures.
Eight miles of the Parkway will be closed to vehicular traffic between Jamestown Settlement to Newport Avenue in Williamsburg, allowing open access for all cyclists and pedestrians to enjoy the road together. There will be a rest stop with bathroom accommodations at Archer’s Hope. As always this event non-competitive, start when you like and suitable for all ages and abilities.
This is a great ride to introduce young family members to the joys of road cycling. Limited parking is available at Jamestown Settlement and at Newport Ave. parking lots in Williamsburg.
The event is free and held rain or shine. All participants should socially distance outside of their pandemic pod and cyclists should wear helmets.
