Here is how it works: You have up to 24 hours beginning Friday April 21st @ 6:00pm to ride/log as many laps as possible on the new Norfolk Bike Loop. The starting line & registration point is at Newport Ave & 35th Street. We ask that every registered rider (ages 18 and up or with a registered adult) checks in at the event HUB by our ecoCounter kiosk on 35th street to help keep track of your laps and miles; remember integrity matters! Every time you check in on 35th street will mark a complete lap or 4 miles (note: We will be using the “inner” clockwise loop for our route). At the end of the 24 hour time allotment (6pm Saturday April 22nd) we will tally your laps and whoever has the most….WINS a prize courtesy of our beloved local bike shops!
Planet Earth is an amazing place, but it’s far from perfect. Since the very beginning, ecocycling has operated under the belief that travel is an exchange, not a commodity. When you travel with us, you’re giving back as much – if not more – than what you take away, often in ways you’d never expect. Lets meetup Saturday Dec 10th around 10 am EST and take a walk together! We will be going “live” together on Facebook.com /ecocyclingorg since we like to explore and have scavenger hunts along the way, you can start by clicking the graphic below for directions and remember to bring your smart phone so we can #improvethemap take photos and make memories together!
P.S. Bring comfortable/active work clothes we have been known to get dirty and #cleanup along the way! BIKES are always welcome
