RamBikes will be hosting two group city rides in the Fall to help you get acquainted with the Richmond area. These group rides will be lead by the staff, and will be around the campus and Fan area of Richmond. If you want to go on more evening group rides around Richmond check out the list above. These two rides will specifically be beginner rides, to introduce riding on streets in a safe way. The rides will meet at the RVA Bike Share Station in Monroe Park, right across from the Cathedral, on the Thursday listed below at 3:30PM, and will leave at 4PM. They will end back at Monroe Park around 5PM. If you need a bike, some may be available for free through RVA Bike Share, but please register below to let us know.

Mobile Bike Repair

While the weather is nice out RamBikes participates in events and offers mobile bike repair in various parts of the campus and city. A mobile bike repair cart, complete with a home mechanic stand and tools to fix your ride will show up. We also bring with us our Bikebrary, which holds free educational literature on D.I.Y. repairs and cycling in the city, free multi-tools and patch kits as supplies last, and other information about bike resources in Richmond. 

RamBikes enjoys participating in VCU events as well as community events or all kinds. If you'd like us to offer mobile bike repair and information at your event please call us at (804) 828-2453 or email rambikes@vcu.edu.
