The New River Valley Bicycle Association (NRVBA) is an organization representing cyclists in Floyd, Giles, Montgomery and Pulaski counties and the City of Radford. The New River Valley Bicycling Association’s mission is to create a better community through and for bicycling.
Few people have seen every mile that makes up a cross-continental trip across the United States—fewer still have accomplished it on a bike. Kris and Bob Peckman will share their experience of biking across North America on March 13 at the Blacksburg Library in Blacksburg, Va.
Beginning in Anacortes, Wash., Kris and Bob Peckman pedaled 4,488-miles to Bar Harbor, Maine in 91 days. The avid hikers and cyclists will present photos and stories from the cross-country trip and share their road-tested tips on distance riding, equipment and planning.
Whether you’re a road rider, a mountain biker, a commuter or a recreational rider, you already know that the New River Valley offers cyclists some of the best riding in Virginia with scenic valleys, rolling hills, challenging climbs and low traffic. Our job is to make sure your communities are places where it is safe and enjoyable for everyone to bike. We also work to bring the bicycling community together, by keeping you posted on local resources, rides and events.
Today we have several hundred members, a 7-member Board of Directors, 300 annual volunteers and a long wish list of projects to tackle. Help us grow by becoming a member today!
