Our planning team and route leaders are sworn to secrecy so that each route will be a surprise for you. What we will tell you: the general neighborhood where meetups will be and the mileage and type of route (easy, medium hardish). Once you are registered to ride a route, you will get the exact starting location sent to you a few hours before the ride.
Answers to your burning questions
Before each group leaves from the starting location, our bike experts will review bike safety. All of our groups will obey the rules of the road such as stopping at stop signs and obeying traffic signals. By choosing to ride however, you are doing so at your own risk and Breakaway RVA and its representatives are not liable for your safety (we’ve gotta say it).
Nope, we do ask you to wear a helmet though.
Nope. This is where you choose your own adventure and best route for you to get home.
We recommend bringing a head lamp, flashlight, or other illuminating device to guide you home when you are ready.
Kids are totally welcome! If they are riding their own bike, please make sure the general milage and route level is doable for them.
We are all dog lovers, however these rides are just for the human population.
You bet! Our routes will always end up near some tasty food and beverages, so make sure to bring wads of cash or plastic.
Wheels stay on the road rain or shine! Come dressed for the weather and embrace being outside. We may cancel an event if there is a severe weather warning (think: thunder, lightening, tornado, flood), so follow us on social and through our newsletter to stay up to date!
All we ask is that you come ride, have fun, and bring a friend!
That’s certainly up to you, and as long as you can still ride safely – we’re all for it!
We strongly discourage this idea as it could pose safety risks to you and other riders.
