THE WILLIAMSBURG WINERY
Cycling Club

We are excited to announce that the Williamsburg Winery Cycling Club will begin the weekly Sunday group rides on Sunday, June 21st. 

 

The Williamsburg Winery Cycling Club has created guidelines to help keep everyone riding and safe. 

 

Remember:

 

  • Stay at home if you have symptoms, even if they are mild (fever, cough, sneezing, feel unwell).

 

  • Riders should follow all public guidelines in terms of washing hands, touching exposed surfaces, and should not attend a group ride if experiencing any symptoms associated with COVID-19.

 

 

Registration

  • We will only offer an electronic pre-registration that will be available on our WWCC Facebook page and the Williamsburg Winery cycling website page, please sign up prior to arriving for the ride. 

 

  • We will no longer offer a beverage station; however, we will have individual chilled bottled water available.

 

  • A staff member has been assigned to the restrooms to ensure they are sanitized frequently 

 

  • Riders should remove gloves and sanitize their hands before entering and exiting the restrooms, sanitizer will be provided at the entrance of the restrooms. Please adhere to social distancing while waiting for the restroom. 

 

Group Ride

 

  • At this time, we will not be taking a group photo prior to wheels up. 

 

  • Signage will be placed in the gathering area that indicates either the A, B+ and B group ride, this allows us to manage departure of each group. Please adhere to social distancing prior to wheels up, we have a large gathering area for each group ride to allow for ample social distancing. 

 

  • If you must sneeze or otherwise expectorate, go to the back or otherwise distance yourself from the rest of the group.

 

  • If a store stop is necessary for longer rides, you should wear a mask into the store, remove gloves and wash your hands or use hand sanitizer before touching store items, and before rejoining the ride group.

Since 2016 when we created the Cycling Club its purpose is to have fun, exercise, raise awareness for the world-class cycling experience in Greater Williamsburg, and most importantly, to make it back safe and sound so that we can enjoy great Virginia Wine, Virginia Craft Beer, and savor delicious local food. We hope you will join us for many two-wheeled adventures for the remainder of this cycling season.

Each ticket includes the ride, rest stops, lunch, a glass of wine, and a ticket to be entered into a raffle drawing. Must be 21+.

Ride Details 
Four groups will be available for varying levels of ability, each guest may choose the ride option that best suits their ability. All routes include a rest stop at Chickahominy Park, offering food, water and restroom facilities. Located at 1350 John Tyler Hwy, Williamsburg.

Registration begins at 8AM at the Williamsburg Winery, the ride begins at 9AM. A refreshments station and a Trek bike pre-adjustment area will be available.

Triathlon bikes, Recumbent bikes, Tandem bikes, trailers and bike seats are not allowed for safety reasons. Helmets are required.

We highly encourage all participants to know basic safety and bike repair skills, including fixing a flat tire. Be prepared and bring your own pump and extra tubes for your bike.
