The #virginiacapitaltrail bridge over I-895 in Varina. Bike ride from Deep Bottom Landing to #RVA today gave great perspective on the cap trail progress. But man there's still a lot to do in 3 short months. #bikeva #bikerva

Not sure of the species, but this big daddy was just caught trying to infiltrate the @richmondoutside world HQ. He was removed to the vegetable garden where he'll be asked to play nicely with the children and dogs.
Richmond-area peeps: book signing tonight at #walkaboutoutfitter in #carytown from 5:30-7 pm. Consider the book an investment in summer road trip adventures @rigganrva @vintage_rva @rvatrees @whitworthcycles @winslowins @riversideoutfittersrva @repjames @rvapaddlesports @homeonthejames @vcuoap @backlightphoto @fanofcycling @farydl1 @blueskyfund

Richmond the “Best Town Ever?”

Here’s a big opportunity to help the RVA ascend to its rightful place in the pantheon of “outdoors-friendly” cities. Heard enough about Portland and Austin? Me too. Now we have a chance to do something about it.

Outside Magazine is about to open online voting for its “Best Town Ever 2012″ contest.  Richmond is one of 10 cities nominated. Chattanooga was the 2011 winner. The vote takes place on Facebook (where else?), and participants can submit comments and photos. Voting begins June 12 and the winner will be featured in the 35th anniversary issue of Outside in October. Go to Facebook.com/Outsidemagazine for more info and to start voting tomorrow.


About Andy Thompson

I was the Outdoors Columnist at the Times-Dispatch from 2007 to 2013, writing twice a week about mountain biking, fishing, hunting, paddling and much more. I live a 1/4 mile from the James River, close enough to see bald eagles soaring over my house on their way to find a meal. Pretty cool, eh?
