Experiencing Richmond

 

Filled with arts, culture, entertainment, historic sites and outdoor activities, Richmond is a city with so much to see either with your friends, family or partner; many experiences in Richmond are both kids and adult-friendly.

Whether you want to cycle along the West Dyke Trail, visit historic landmarks, or peddle through its beautiful parks, Richmond provides an extensive network of both on-street and off-street cycling routes for cyclists of all levels.   

With these routes, you’ll get to see what the City of Richmond is all about. You will get to see great sceneries and plenty of places to make a stop to grab a bite or walk through the park. With our Temporary Parking feature, you can park the bike temporarily without ending your ride completely. Your bike will still be there at the end of your walk or meal!
