With the onset of the social distancing restrictions brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic, the Williamsburg Area Bicyclists suspended all group rides back in March. However, since Virginia entered Phase 2 of the easing of the restrictions, we have re-started our group rides but with the following restrictions:
Of course, other "common sense" guidelines also apply:
Since our club rides are now restricted to members only, they do not appear on the Calendar unless you log in as a member. The calendar event has a Booking feature to enable you to pre-register. This is the means to keep the group size at or below the 10 person maximum. If you are not currently a member and would like to join our rides, we would love to have you!

Kane Dacier, middle son of WAB member Nancy Dacier, is working on an Eagle Scout project to erect a bicycle fix-it station at Freedom Park. He plans to have the project complete by the end of August. Part of his project involves raising the necessary funds, estimated at $1500, some of which is already secured. If he receives more than needed, any excess could be used for signage, a plaque listing donors, or other amenities that the park staff may suggest, otherwise he said it would be donated to Freedom Park for their use. Kane would like to complete his fund-raising by the end of June. WAB would like to have all donations made by June 30 so we can process a check to Troop 300 immediately thereafter.
Please consider contributing to this worthwhile project - it will provide a benefit to the community as well as help a fine young man achieve his Eagle Scout goal.

The Williamsburg Area Bicyclists sponsors club rides where members and visitors come together and ride a designated “route” in the Williamsburg area. These rides are classified by difficulty (both pace and distance). Ride leaders provide the routes in the form of “cue sheets” and strive to facilitate safe and enjoyable experiences for all participants.
