The Register's Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa

Richmond, VA teams?

I am a new rider and plan to drive from Richmond, VA to the end point and hitch some sort of ride to the start, either with a charter or a team.
Anyone else in my general area planning the same? Are there any RVA teams in the works?

Top of the Morning Jennifer. My wife and I are leaving from Manassas VA, but are not interested in driving. However, we do train on the Richmond Capital Trail. If you were to take our bags and bikes, we would pay you….. which would subsidize your adventure.

Good afternoon! That is a fantastic proposition! I can definitely carry two additional bikes and would welcome the funding!
I was thinking of driving to the end point, arriving Saturday so, we would need to arrange transport to the start point. Let me know if that works for you guys.
I would also be open to some training rides on the Cap Trail. I currently ride at a C pace, but always progressing πŸ™‚

Jennifer-I’m glad you liked the idea of hustling gear to make money. For me the logistics are part of the adventure. Even if you drive the bikes to the end point they would have to be boxed to make it on the bus. No worries…..plenty time. I used to know what the C pace was; I’m more concerned about keeping my Cadence around 80. Its my opinion…..that you should not be concerned about speed or power for this ride. I would set the stage for a couple multi day rides in your training plan. (I’m not a trainer) We ride so much we don’t have a training plan. Ha Ha.. This area has more trails than you can do over the summer. The Capital Trail can be your go to because its about the same length a day ride on the RAGBRAI. Good Luck with your training. I will post which charity rides we sign up for in the spring.
