Williamsburg Area Bicyclists
Williamsburg Va is a great place to bicycle! Plenty of local roads with bicycle lanes, the nearby Virginia Capital Trail and the scenic Colonial Parkway and other nearby parks make for great riding. See our website, www.wabonline.org for our monthly newsletter the Flying Wheel and our monthly ride calendar.
WAB is a bicycling club of about 300 members interested in promoting and encouraging the use of the bicycle as a means of recreation, fitness, and transportation. We also
encourage the development and the utilization of facilities for bicycling on public lands. We provide information in the interest of bicycle safety and espouse and uphold the rights of bicyclists.
