HBC Williamsburg Trip
October 8th to 11th, 2020
UPDATE (6/25/20): Due to the Covid-19 concerns, the group dinner on Friday has been cancelled and the registration fees reduced accordingly. Those that have already registered will receive a refund of $35/person. In addition, the deadline for registration has been extended until August 31st. At the end of August a “go/no-go” decision will be made. If the event is cancelled, a full refund will be issued to all those registered. Also, prior to September 20th, individual full refunds will be extended if the event is still held but you decide to cancel for any reason.
Your registration fee includes monies for a full breakfast and hospitality, however adjustments may need to be made. For example, a buffet breakfast may not be possible. Likewise congregating in a Hospitality Room may not be prudent. We will know more as the event date approaches.
Let’s not let this coronavirus get us down!
The Harrisburg Bicycle Club is once again sponsoring a ride in the “Historic Triangle” and surrounding areas of Williamsburg, Virginia. Participants will travel to Williamsburg on Thursday, October 8th and stay three nights at the Best Western Historic District, within easy walking distance of Historic Colonial Williamsburg. A variety of ride options will be available for Friday, Saturday and Sunday to explore the area. All routes will be available on the HBC Club Account on the Ride With GPS website. Attendees may optionally purchase Route Books containing cue sheets and maps for an additional $6. The price for three days of lodging, full breakfasts and hospitality will be $165/person (double occupancy) or $320 (single occupancy). Registration and payment is due August 31st, 2020.
You will be staying at the Best Western Historic District, conveniently located within a 1/2 mile walk to Colonial Williamsburg. Your registration includes full buffet breakfast, wifi, swimming pool and self parking. Hospitality snacks, beer, wine and soda will be provided Thursday and Saturday. Group room rates are honored 3 days prior and after if you wish to extend your stay. NOTE: at this time, given the Covid-19 concerns it is unclear how the breakfast and hospitalities will be handled. We will know more as the event date approaches.
The Williamsburg area is “bicycle friendly” with dedicated bicycle/multi-use paths as well as bike lanes. Routes are available to provide a variety of ride options and lengths. Routes will be available to/from the hotel and Jamestown, Yorktown and Colonial Williamsburg. For those desiring to ride further distances and explore the countryside, longer routes will be available in surrounding counties of James City, Charles City, York and Surry (accessible via a free ferry). For those that opt for the safety and calm of dedicated bicycle paths, the Virginia Capital Trail and Powhatan Creek Trail offer many miles of scenic riding. The Virginia Capital Trail extends 52 miles from Jamestown to Richmond! The Colonial Parkway will be used on some of the routes as well.
