Bike Virginia to unveil new website

April 15, 2013 3:25pm

Bike Virginia recently came out with an exciting press release. If you’re a cyclist who’s traveled Virginia’s byways, you know this is long overdue. The statewide bicycling advocacy group, announced that it is “in the development stages for a comprehensive cycling resource website that will provide cycling-related information and activities from across the state of Virginia. The website will serve to support both new and experienced cyclists of all ages and skill levels, helping connect people with places to ride and encourage cycling and bicycle tourism across the state.”

bikevirginia-1352471333_600The joint announcement was made today by Tom Bowden, Chairman of the Bike Virginia Board of Directors, and the organization’s Executive Director Dr. Kim Perry. The non-profit works to improve the state of active living in Virginia through bicycling initiatives. Funding for the project is provided by proceeds from the annual Bike Virginia Tour and a generous donation from Primal Custom Cycling Apparel. The Bike Virginia organization’s mission is to help Virginia benefit from and grow bicycling, to positively influence health and the environment, and enjoy the associated economic benefits. The site will include a ‘places to ride’ section, a calendar of activities, cycling news, information on commuting by bike and riding for fun and fitness, cycling club information, tourism centers, bike shops, links to cycling-related businesses, trail maps and more. Communities from across the state will be invited to participate by providing information regarding their cycling-related activities and places to ride via an online submittal form. The site is expected to go-live this fall.
