Start international #earthday with a purpose! Take a ride for as long or brief as you like for the charity of your choice (see pledge card below) and rack up as many miles as you can in a 24 hour period all in the name of Eco Friendly“Smart Cycling“!
Signup and register early so you can get your pledge sheets filled out, submitted before you start and have your supporters ready to donate to the charity of your choice!
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!
Our team will meet promptly at Newtown Road Park and Ride in Norfolk VA by 6:45am on the 23rd of January. You may also secure your own separate travel or use another service like the ride sharing tools linked below.
