There’s still time to sign up and ride in the 13th VCU Health Cap2Cap. The annual fundraiser ride for the Virginia Capital Trail Foundation is this Saturday (May 12th) at the Charles City County Courthouse complex. This year, organizers are expecting 1,500 riders of all ages and abilities — from an 86-year-old who is riding the 50-miler, to a 4-year-old who has already signed up for the fun ride.
The event begins at 7:30 a.m. with the first group, the Waste-Management Century riders. These cyclists will ride 100 miles all over Charles City and Eastern Henrico County roads.
The Virginia Credit Union Half-Century group begins its mass start at 8:30 a.m., the Agee’s Bicycles 25-Miler begins at 9:30 a.m. The Virginia Capital Trail 15-Mile Fun ride kicks off at 9:45am.
The Virginia Capital Trail Foundation asks that residents be aware that Rt. 5 at the Charles City County Courthouse will be closed for the mass starts only. Riders will be out on the routes throughout the day, so anyone planning to be passing through the area is advised to use caution. Click here for the routes and more information.
This event raises funds for the Virginia Capital Trail Foundation whose mission is to oversee enhancement, promotion, and ongoing development of the Virginia Capital Trail, a paved, multi-use trail connecting Richmond to Williamsburg along the historic Rt. 5 corridor.
Online registration is open through May 9th. Walk up registration will be available after this date. For more information, please contact Cat Anthony, executive director of the Virginia Capital Trail Foundation at 804-788-6455 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
