Bike Virginia is a way to escape the everyday and spend some time among kindred spirits and beautiful landscapes.

“Nestled within lush rolling hills lies an ancient river that winds its way North. Slipping silently through pastures, between mountains, and alongside villages, the sparkling New River feeds the soil and the soul. IT’S NEW. IT’S ANCIENT. IT’S AMAZING.”

Bike Virginia and the locals work to provide extra excursions and activities for bikers. Some include yoga and massages at the trip headquarters or coordination to float the New River or boat Claytor Lake.
