      Pedal through Petals: A Guided Cycling Tour of Richmond's Gardens

      Join us for a guided tour of Richmond's most beautiful architecture and gardens, on your bike!  Please bring your bike, a water bottle and a bike helmet (helmets are required to ride).  Party Central is on Clay Street, just in front of The Valentine.  Car traffic will be blocked off from this street during the event, and you can use the "bike valet" while you register for the ride and try your luck at the raffle.  Also, the Valentine and its garden will be open to us for touring after your ride. Registration and breakfast begin at 8 am.  Register and have a bite while you shop for a great raffle prize.   Then, starting in waves at 9:30, your guide will lead you through downtown and Church Hill.  Notwithstanding the word "hilll," the ride is fairly flat.  (It is shorter than in years past, and a bit flatter).  From time to time, you will stop, dismount your bike and tour some gorgeous spots.  Stops include Becky's Healing Garden at Massey Cancer Center, St. John's Churchyard, several private gardens at Libby Hill Terrace, beautiful gardens in the heart of Church Hill, and more. Your group of riders will be assigned a ride leader who will make sure you do not get lost.  Nobody will be left behind.  After some leisurely riding, you will return to Party Central, where you can get food and beer or wine.  Plus, we'll have another huge raffle. --Family Fun Zone, new this year.  Bouncy castle, balloon lady, face painting, visits from princesses, Nutzy, Richmond Kickers players, crafts and more! --We will have a raffle drawings both before and after the ride!  We have some awesome prizes!  Get your raffle tickets in advance below. --We will have a costume contest.  Prizes will be awarded to first, second and third place.  Decorate you and your bike!  How creative can you get? --Don't have a bike?  Thanks to Richmond Rides Bicycle Tours, you can rent a bike for the day, and your rental fee is a donation to Massey!    Your bike will be waiting for you at the start of the event, and you check it back in after your ride right before the after party.  --We need volunteers!  Please sign up below for a volunteer shift at Proceeds from the bike tour and raffle are for the benefit of VCU Massey Cancer Center, and will be used for life-saving research. This is an event of Amy's Army of  Cancer Warriors.
