Reserve your ticket to ride on the earthday event and fundraise for the charity or non-profit organization of your choice. Remember you don’t have to ride all day just as long as you would like within the 24 hour period.
Talk to your family, friends and others about them sponsoring you for each mile you ride on the Norfolk Bike Loop. Every mile can mean contributions to your charity organization. Sponsors can also choose a “flat amount” to give.

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!
