We have a pretty active bike club - https://brbcva.org/ They do organized rides (on and off road) several times a week. There are plenty of good routes around here.

We are lucky enough to have quite a few good bike shops here as well:
https://www.cardinalbicycle.com - carries Specialized, Giant, Raleigh - some high end stuff, but mostly entry level and kids stuff. Good selection of helmets/clothes/etc.
https://www.eastcoasters.com - carries Trek, Gary Fisher, Guru, Serotta and I think a couple more. Good mix of low and high end stuff. They do great bike fittings, and support a lot of local racers
https://www.justtherightgear.com - carries Cannondale, Santa Cruz, Kona, Surly, Niner, and some other nice brands. They are a couple miles from the most popular mountain biking area in this area
https://www.starlightbikes.com - mainly carries track/fixed gear stuff, but also carries some higher end road stuff. They are very involved in the racing scene around here as well.
https://www.3peaksshop.com - mainly a tri store, but carries a good range of road bikes. I know they carry Blue and Fuji. Not sure what other brands

Anyone in the Richmond area that might suggest one of the shops or perhaps an individual for cold setting? Particularly a fork. Someone good with Sturmey Archer hubs would be great as well or who carries 650a tires. Just trying to get this old 3 speed up to snuff and would like to keep my business local if possible. TIA.
