Capital Color Ride
Sat., Oct 5th
You’ve heard of The Color Run™, but how about a color ride? Join Parks & Recreation on Saturday, Oct. 5, 9 a.m.- 1 p.m. for the Capital Color Ride and add a little color to your bike ride along a 15-mile stretch (choose your ride option) of the Virginia Capital Trail. Enjoy family friendly biking – pedal at your own pace from Chickahominy Riverfront Park to the James City County Marina and back. Wear a white T-shirt and get “colored” at pits stops along the way which feature refueling stations of water, healthy snacks and recreational fun.
There are multiple riding options:
Purple: The family fun marker (1-mile ride)
Green: 2-mile marker (4-mile ride)
Blue: 4-mile marker (8-mile ride)
Red: 7-mile marker (14-mile ride)
Gold: Return to Chickahominy Riverfront Park for the gold finisher color!
All ages are welcome; children must be with an adult.
