Where To Ride

Freewheelin sponsors the Virginia Beach Bikeway map.

The Eastern Virginia Mountainbike Association (E.V.M.A) is a group of hard-working, dedicated riders who maintain trails in the Hampton Roads area. Please volunteer your time to help them.
All of the EVMA trails are on the peninsula. Go to
www.evma.org for more information.

Sort of off-road: A section of U.S. 17 has been replaced. The old road is now a multi-use trail. Here is a link to Google Maps

Laws Relating to Bicycles

VDOT has a normal language page of bicycle laws with links to the underlying legalese.

Here is where to search for all Virginia laws about bicycles (in legalese).
Select "Code of Virginia" under the heading "Searchable Databases." Type "bicycle" into the search field.
[Sorry, previous attempts at linking directly to the results have proved problematic.]

You can find Virginia Beach City Ordinances here. See Chapter 7.

The City of Virginia Beach no longer issues bicycle licenses. A link to the page about that is here. Consider the National Bicycle Registry.

Donate your old bike

There is a great charity for old adult bicycles. Virginia Beach United Methodist Church has a program that reconditions bikes for those who need transportation.
