Wednesday Cycling for Libraries for the 2018 VLA Conference

Wednesday, September 26, 2018 from 11 am - 4 pm.

Introducing VLA’s first Cycling for Libraries, or un-conference on a bike! In addition to spending the day exploring Williamsburg’s historic sites, participants will enjoy a memorable networking opportunity while visiting two local libraries.

We will cycle about a 20-mile round trip from the Williamsburg Lodge. Along the way we will see historic Williamsburg, bike along the picturesque Colonial Parkway, with a stop for lunch and discussion. Then we’ll head back for a tour of the award winning Williamsburg Library as well as a visit to the Special Collections at the College of William & Mary’s Swem Library, before ending back at the Lodge.

Lunch will not be provided, but we will have the opportunity to pick something up or feel free to bring your own.

We will be riding on low traffic streets. Never ridden 20 miles? Don’t worry! The route is mostly flat plus you have time to prepare! The pace will be moderate, around 9-10 mph.

For those needing to rent a bike, bike rentals for the day cost $35 and will be provided by Bike the Burg. Rentals include a single speed bicycle, helmet and lock. Your bikes will be ready to pick up when you check in for the event and Bike the Burg will pick them up at the end of the day.

Register for Wednesday Cycling before September 12, 2018.
