Hello from Richmond, Va.

Hi everyone,

I am getting back into biking after a lengthy absence. I ride a 2018 Trek DS 3 around town and through our local parks.
Has anyone here ridden the Virginia Capital Trail that traverses the 52 miles between Richmond and Williamsburg, Va?
I plan on ridding at least part of it very soon. Looking forward to seeing you out on the trails!

John

Thanks Stan.
I was thinking of starting off with the section between the Great Shiplock Park and the Four Mile Creek Trailhead.

John,

I remember it’s such a scenic trail, especially when it gets away from the cities. I’m from NoVa and not much help about know where I was it. The good thing it was hard for me to get lost
