RICHMOND — The Virginia Credit Union Cap2Cap presented by Dominion Energy returns for its 18th year May 12-13.
The event is aimed for multiple ages and fitness levels, with distances ranging from a seven–mile family fun ride to 100-plus miles along the fully supported course on the Virginia Capital Trail, a 51.7-mile paved trail stretching from Williamsburg to Richmond. Other features include furnished rest stops, SAG and tech support, party zones, and two-day, virtual and shuttle options.
“We are honored to work alongside Virginia Credit Union, Dominion Energy and other partners to introduce new offerings this year, while continuing to create a unique experience for our riders that showcases the beauty of the Virginia Capital Trail and brings the whole community together,” said Cat Anthony, Executive Director of the Virginia Capital Trail Foundation.
The family-friendly event also features a flexible open start format, course support, restrooms, sample ride itineraries, and on-site packet pick-ups, according to the Virginia Capital Trail Foundation.
