Ride to the River

August 21, 2019 05:30 pm - 09:00 pm
Location: PEC's Charlottesville Office, Water Street East 410, Charlottesville, Virginia

Enjoy the sweetness of a late-summer evening with a relaxed, all-abilities bike ride to a semi-secret beach on the Rivanna River. The ride will include a quick visit to Farmers in the Park and an optional dip in the river (so bring your towel and appropriate attire and footwear if you plan to get wet!). The ride will end with fellowship and discussion at Wild Wolf Brewing Company. Free and appropriate for anyone who can ride a bike.

The Bike Cville series is supported by a grant from the BamaWorks Fund.
We'll gather in front of PEC’s Water Street office starting at 5:30 to decorate bikes and safety checks. The ride itself will begin a little past 6:00. The out-and-back route will follow bike lanes, quiet neighborhood streets, and the Rivanna River Greenway. wherever possible and be mostly flat with just one very major hill. We will hang out at the beach long enough to hail summer and perhaps get wet, then return to downtown for food, drink, and discussion.

Staff and volunteers from The Piedmont Environmental Council, the Charlottesville Bicycle & Pedestrian Advisory Committee and Charlottesville Community Bikes (unconfirmed) will be on hand to help with minor repairs or adjustments. Stop by a bit early if you'd like to help - or need help -with decorations/repairs.
