Come ride with me! Registration opens for 17th Cap2Cap bike ride

Registration is now open for the Cap2Cap bike ride, which will take place May 6 and 7 along the scenic Virginia Capital Trail.

Celebrating its 17th year, the family-friendly custom ride experience features a paved course separated from vehicle traffic, multiple distances, and a post-ride party with a live DJ and local artisans.
