That's pretty cool, I just moved up here to Richmond so I'll hopefully be able to partake in some of these events. I'm sad I can't check out the track racing, I'm in grad school at VCU and I have class at 7 on wednesdays so I'll miss out on that. What's the deal with the manchester bike ride that saturday? Is it more of a leisurely paced event or is it roadie-oriented? I've been riding with the RABA group on Sundays at Dorey Park, but I'm looking for some other relatively faster groups to ride with as well... Thanks for posting this!
