Pedal the Parkway Planned for April 23-25

JAMES CITY-A portion of Colonial Parkway will be closed off to vehicular traffic for three days at the end of April for the annual Pedal the Parkway event.

The National Park Service at Colonial National Historic Park and BikeWalk Williamsburg are hosting the event, which will be held April 23 beginning at 7am and continue through 8pm on April 25. During Pedal the Parkway, pedestrians and bicyclists are invited to utilize the parkway for a scenic stroll or ride along the York River.

Seven miles of Colonial Parkway will be shutdown to vehicles for Pedal the Parkway. The parkway will be closed from 199/Kingspoint to Route 359 at Jamestown.

Face masks are required on national lands when social distancing is not possible. Portable restrooms and a handwashing station will be available at Archer’s Hope and indoor restrooms will be available at the Jamestown Visitor Center from 9am to 5pm.

Each day of the Pedal the Parkway event will revolve around a theme. Friday, April 23 is being dubbed “Friendship Friday” when individuals are encouraged to bring their friends for a walk or bike ride on the parkway. Saturday, April 24, is “Junior Ranger Day,” when younger walkers and riders can pick up junior ranger booklets from park rangers outside the Yorktown Battlefield and Jamestown Visitor Centers.

Pedal the Parkway concludes on Sunday, April 25, with “BARK Ranger Day,” when pets are welcome on the Colonial Parkway.


Free parking for the event will be available at Jamestown Settlement as well as the National Park Service Visitor Center on Jamestown Island.
