A revamped version of the Dominion Energy Cap2Cap event will take place May 7-9 along the Virginia Capital Trail.

The annual cycling event, now in its 16th year, is a way to promote bike riding and use of the Virginia Capital Trail, which stretches more than 50 miles from Jamestown Settlement to Richmond. Cap2Cap returns after a cancellation in 2020 due to the covid-19 pandemic. This year, the event is being held during National Bike Month in May. Cap2Cap will also be held entirely on the Virginia Capital Trail, which is a little different from previous years.

Participants can choose from several mile ride options, which include a 7- to 10- mile family fun ride; a 25- mile bike ride; a 50- mile bike ride; or a Full Century, or 100- mile bike ride.

In addition to scenic views along a paved path separated from vehicle traffic, the Cap2Cap Ride will feature fully stocked rest stops, restroom facilities, sample ride itineraries, a boxed lunch, on-site pick up, raffles, and an optional start and finish line at Dorey Park in Henrico County.

“I am looking forward to seeing some of our awesome cyclists who love and cherish the Virginia Capital Trail, and excited to celebrate having this awesome resource in our community,” said Cat Anthony, Executive Director for the Virginia Capital Trail Foundation.

Covid-19 safety protocols will be in effect during the event. Registration fees for the Cap2Cap event range from $45 – $75 depending on the ride, with discounted pricing for youth. The ride for Saturday, May 8, has reached capacity. To register for May 7 or May 9, visit

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
