THE WILLIAMSBURG WINERY
Ride, Dine, Imbibe, Repeat!
On Sundays, join cycling enthusiasts from The Williamsburg Winery team on a group ride through the Historic Triangle and back to the Winery for wine and brunch specials at the Gabriel Archer Tavern. We ride every Sunday (weather permitting) from March 17th-November 17th. There's no fee to participate!
The Williamsburg Winery Cycling Club is back and better than ever! We're beyond grateful for everyone's support over the last year; we've learned a lot and are excited for the year ahead. Due to feedback, both good and critical, that we've received, we're going to be making some enhancements this year. This is a group ride, and our expectations are that we ride together, with and for one another, making each ride fun, safe and enjoyable. Our rides will no longer be published as a "final average pace" instead; we will have groups designated by average "rolling" speed, meaning that we'll ride within that pace range on the flats, slower on the hills and faster on the descents. We'll also have "sprint zones" for those who want the challenge followed by designated meet up points. The purpose of our Club 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'll join us for many two-wheeled adventures this year. Cheers!
