The Colonial Parkway is a great ride any day but made even more family friendly one special day each year. Pedal the Parkway is the best way to kick off the season with an 8 mile ride, bikers and walkers only – no vehicles. While the parkway is a 3 lane road, offering plenty of space for two lanes of vehicles plus bikers and walkers, it’s so nice to not have to worry about any cars for a day. Bikers of all ages and abilities can get out and pedal this beautiful, historic and scenic stretch of the parkway. Bring a picnic lunch and make a day of it. The ride starts at 8am on May 4th and ends at 1pm. There’s one rest stop available for riders and walkers along with a bike mechanical station ready to assist. Pedal the Parkway is co-hosted by BikeWalk Williamsburg and the National Park Service. BikeWalk Williamsburg will have free helmets on site and will fit them for riders who need them. Riders must register and can do so when they arrive for the event.
