The Richmond Region is the best for bikes. With urban single track, bike tours and the UCI Road World Championships coming in September, it's clear that this is a great place to explore on two wheels. Sports Backers is getting ready for Dominion Riverrock this month with Bike Month. Here are 5 Can't Miss Bike Month Rides:

 

May the Fourth Be With You!

This Star Wars themed ride happens tonight! Bring your best lightsaber and Jar Jar Binks costume to the compass on VCU's campus at 6:00 p.m. The ride starts at 6:30. If you're not up for riding, head to Richmond Bicycle Studio at 8 p.m. for a screening of "A New Hope" and watch Han shoot first because Han always shoots first.

Cinco De Mayo Taco Crawl

Want to start off your Cinco de Mayo celebration with a little exercise? The taco crawl is the event for you. Register for the event now to minimize taco waiting time (nobody likes to wait for tacos).
