LEARN MORE

WOW 2017 marks 30 years of touring Virginia with amazing bike enthusiasts just like you! Bike Virginia has seen almost all of the state in our long history of exploring Virginia by rural back roads. We know you will find this area of the Shenandoah Valley beautiful and historical, and completely unique to Virginia.

We focus on great riding, relaxing, entertainment, exploration, fun and just the right services to keep you happy and comfortable. Come for a day, three days (weekend or weekday), or the whole 6-day adventure!

Most of what you loved from the revolutionary 2016 tour returns for 2017, including the rider favorite Food Truck Fiesta! and our Double Vision format that gives you access to your car the entire time!

Read more about the great riding on our Routes Page, and all the fun we have in store.

With a staff of just five, we rely on hundreds of volunteers to make the tour run smoothly. Read about our available positions in this blog post and how you can help make this year’s event a success!

Registration opens on December 1st, 2016!  You’ll be sure to appreciate how streamlined and simplified the registration process is again this year.  We looked over everything with a magnifying glass to make it the best it could be, along with everything else you’ve come to expect from Bike Virginia.

Find the three large buttons near the top of the page, and click on the package that works best for your schedule:

  • 6-Day Tour (Friday through Wednesday) JUNE 23–28
  • 3-Day Weekend (Friday, Saturday, Sunday) JUNE 23–25
  • 3-Day Weekday (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday) JUNE 26–28

If you can only join us for a single day, don’t worry — we still have you covered!  Walk-In registrations will also be offered on-site during the event.

NOTE: Children under the age of 12 will be registered on the same form as their parent/guardian — no extra paperwork!  Teenagers (ages 12–18) will submit their own registration form, same as adults.

Confirmation Policy

Confirmations will be sent via email.

NOTE: At the bottom of the registration form is a checkbox that allows US to send YOU critical information about your registration.  DO NOT UNCHECK THAT BOX!

All of the information you need to get ready for the Bike Virginia Tour is on our website. You’ll find directions to registration, the lists of hotels, reservations for special activities, what to bring, training tips and more. Visit often for updates!

Cancellation requests will not be honored for any reason, including medical, after March 31, 2017.  There will be NO exceptions. If you must cancel, you may substitute another rider by transferring your registration.

We highly recommend that you protect your purchase with an inexpensive Travel Protection Plan. For a small investment you can have peace of mind. In some instances a trip that is cancelled can qualify for insurance reimbursement. You can purchase insurance through Travelex or from any travel agent.

Transfer Policy

Registrations can be transferred from one rider to another.  For instructions on how to transfer your registration, please contact Samer Meshreki. The new rider will incur a transfer fee of less than $10/day (6-DAY $59, 3-DAY $29)

Youth/Children

The Bike Virginia Tour can be a fun family event. Please read closely the information below on our policies and suggestions.

  • Everyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian and have the consent of a parent or guardian to participate in Bike Virginia.
  • All youth under the age of 16 must be under the supervision of an adult at all times.
  • All children under the age of 12 must ride on a tandem, trailer bike or in a trailer. Children under the age of 12 cannot ride a single bike.

The bike tour can be strenuous on young children even when riding in a cart or on an adult’s bike. High temperatures, sun exposure and long periods on the bike can be difficult and even dangerous for children. Please consider carefully your child’s limitations and what is best for your family’s health and enjoyment.

SAG (support vans) do not carry child safety seats and may not be able to accommodate children. It is best to provide your own SAG support for young children on the tour.

1-DAY WALK-IN $149

  • Register on-site at our headquarters one hour before routes open
  • Includes 1 lunch token (see our Lunch Token FAQ) AND $10 voucher towards purchase at BVA store.

RETURNING for 2017 While the concept of a team discount isn’t new to the Bike Virginia Tour, we weren’t able to offer them in 2015, and decided it was time to bring them back (with a modern twist!)

Quite simply, the process is this:

  • Four (4) people decide to register as a TEAM for the full 6-DAY TOUR
  • One (1) person is the MANAGER who collects funds from the team
  • The manager goes to our online store and purchases a team PASSPORT
  • PASSPORT is a unique registration CODE that can be used exactly four (4) times
  • We email the PASSPORT to the MANAGER who distributes it amongst the team
  • Each member registers individually and uses their team’s unique PASSPORT code to waive the 6-DAY TOUR fee

The team PASSPORT is a great way to obtain a significant discount over our individual 6-DAY registration prices!  And if you order one before December 31st, that comes out to less than $75 per person per day!

However, we only have a limited quantity of passports available for purchase… first come, first served. So get your team PASSPORT before they’re all gone!

Please note that any additional purchases made during team registration are the responsibility of each participant (e.g. if a member of the team adds-on the breakfast plan, they still have to pay for it.)

DUE TO THE NATURE OF THE PROGRAM THERE ARE NO REFUNDS ON A TEAM PASSPORT AT ANY TIME AND FOR ANY REASON. This is a departure from our normal registration policy, where individual (non-team) registrations completed prior to a certain date can be cancelled and refunded minus a service fee. TEAM MANAGER ASSUMES FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE PASSPORT. Don’t lose it or share it with anyone not on the team. PURCHASING A TEAM PASSPORT DOES NOT REGISTER YOU FOR THE TOUR. Each team member must register individually using their unique team passport code in order to waive the registration fee. TEAM PASSPORT MUST BE REDEEMED BEFORE ONLINE REGISTRATION CLOSESAfter purchasing a passport, each team member can register at their leisure, but please be mindful of deadlines for any other promotions (i.e. complimentary jersey) and the end of online registration. EACH TEAM NEEDS THEIR OWN PASSPORT. Team size is limited to four. If you have more than four, make another team.

Bike Virginia is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that relies exclusively on donations and event registrations to fund our advocacy efforts.  If you make a 100% tax deductible donation at one of two levels, we are pleased to offer these highly sought after event perks to make your experience even more enjoyable.

  • DONATION LEVEL ONE ($100) — VIP REGISTRATION.  Receive your registration materials by mail one week in advance of the event.  NO WAITING IN LINE, just park and ride! (Requires completion of online safety briefing)
  • DONATION LEVEL TWO ($400) — VIP PARKING.  Up to 6 days of Reserved Parking at event headquarters.  Less walking, more riding… we put you as close to the action as possible!  Includes VIP REGISTRATION. (Limited quantity available)
You can bring your recreational vehicle (RV) to Bike Virginia!
  • Registration is required (select the option on your registration form)
  • Fee is $99 for 6-DAY, $49 for 3-DAY
NOTE HOOKUPS NOT INCLUDED. You must make arrangements and payment directly with each facility.
NOTE Parking at HQ2 only covers Monday and Tuesday nights — we do not have permission to stay Wednesday evening.  Event ends at 5pm.  Please plan accordingly.

Returning for 2017, our Double Vision format gives you more riding options and NO ONE-WAY routes!  Be sure to read about all the exciting changes that come with the Double Vision format.
