This year we have a bike that will get you where you need to go and can fit into your suitcase!  The bike is a Dahon folding bike, these are super neat bikes that help you commute even when space is limited or if you are traveling you can take your bike with you.  Learn more about Dahon HERE.  Similar to last year we will have the bike custom painted with 25th anniversary graphics to match this years theme!  Please check back often as we post images of the bike going through its makeover.

Also included in the raffle will be goodies from Trek!

Each registered rider will receive one (1) ticket as part of your registration.  Additional tickets can be purchased for one dollar at the time of registration or at the Bike Virginia Store during the event.

The winning ticket will be drawn on Tuesday, June 26.

You must be present to win, so please make sure you are at the Bike Virginia Store located in Tent City on Tuesday, June 26! The exact time and location of the drawing will be posted in your rider manual and in your registration materials.

Commuting safely by bike is a big component of what BikeWalk VA does.  BikeWalk VA supports cycling throughout the state of Virginia.  One of the many ways we are making Virginia better for cycling is by promoting safer ways to travel by bike.  Our Mini-Grant program offers up to $5,000 for each Bike Virginia tour.  With that money the communities we visit will have financial backing to help them improve biking and walking.  By participating in Bike Virginia and the Bike Raffle you are helping communities receive grant money that will help improve their bicycle and pedestrian needs!  Learn more about our grant program by checking out the Giving Back tab.

 

Check back often as we will post images of the bike as it makes it’s transformation into a one of a kind collectors bike!
