We were honored last night with the presentation of a Preservation Award from the Roanoke Valley Preservation Foundation for our work on the History by Bike route.
Bikeshare by RIDE Solutions added three new stations to its growing bikeshare network this week. On Tuesday, new 10-space stations were added in Roanoke’s Crystal Spring Village, at the Riverside campus housing Carilion Clinic and the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine, and at Soaring Ridge Craft Brewers just on the outskirts of downtown Roanoke.
In July, Danville Parks and Recreation unveiled a bike share program for residents. In only three weeks, more than 400 people have registered utilizing the bike share app and over 700 rides have been taken by users. The majority of the rides have been on the Riverwalk Trail, taken by individuals either looking for some exercise or recreation, or transportation options.
We’re proud to announce the recipients of our 2017 Bike Awards – Paul Dahl of Lynchburg, VA for the Bike Hero award and Mackenzie Jarvis of Blacksburg, VA for our Extraordinary Bike Professional. Read below for more on the great work these women are doing for cycling in the region.
