Bike Restaurant Week Launches

Roll on over to your favorite restaurant.

Posted By on Tue, Sep 12, 2017 at 1:43 PM

It’s an opportunity for zero-sum eating: Bike Walk RVA is throwing its first restaurant week from Sept. 17-21. Restaurants that have signed on will offer discounts or promotions to customers who ride over, instead of driving over. And if you’d like a little guidance, Bike Walk RVA will lead cycling tours each night to get you more comfortable with Richmond’s bike-friendly developments.

“There is nothing quite like a casual evening ride with friends or family to your favorite local restaurant or exploring a new neighborhood on two wheels to try a new place to eat,” said Brantley Tyndall, community engagement manager for Bike Walk RVA in a news release.

There are a whole bunch of restaurants participating —  the Roosevelt, Casa del Barco, Stir Crazy, Lunch/Supper, even Ellwood Thompson’s Local Market. Here’s a link to the list so you can check out the ones in your neighborhood.

Or, hey — crazy thought: Why don’t you cycle on over to another neighborhood to try something different or to burn off a few extra calories? You may even be able to borrow a bike with the new RVA Bike Share program.

“On a bike,” says Zach Archibald, owner of another participating spot, Lamplighter Roasting Co., “you put yourself ‘in charm’s way’ when it comes to the highlights of city life.”
