RIDE Solutions sponsors the Ride Smart Challenge to encourage everyone to explore their transportation options. One of the side effects of taking the Ride Smart Challenge and trying new ways to get where you’re going is learning more about your community. — What bus route is near me? Can I ride on the greenway to get to work? Are there safe bike routes near my house? Is someone near me looking for a carpool partner?
For those looking for a holiday bike ride in Blacksburg, we encourage you to look into…
