Richmond VA ride and swap

Found a link to a ride and swap that was today in Richmond.  Stopped by and met a couple museum members. Was cold and rainy but was in a big parking garage. Hopefully the next one will be advertised more. Took my General and rode a little.
Good meeting the guys that were there.

Re: Richmond VA ride and swap

I only know of 3 of us that were there that I actually talked to about the site.  Wasn't many bmx there, lot of fixie bikes and old 10speeds.  A few bmx frames and a couple completes.  But could have been a cool place for it.  I just stumbled on the flyer on craigslist.  Didn't take any pics though.  There was supposed to be a ride after from the museum to carytown for some sort of film at the old movie theater but I didnt' stick around that long.  It was pooring rain anyway off and on.
Hoping that they do it again and it's a bigger event.  Would be great to finally have something in Richmond.

Re: Richmond VA ride and swap

Yeah, the 'fixie hipsters' pretty much own the bike scene here in the RVA.  You see more of the bmx crowd at the annual Slaughterama.  I noticed The Bunnyhop Bike Shop on the sponsor list from the poster, they're an AWESOME group of guys and Luke, the owner was SUPER helpful when I was cobbling together my tight-budget-rider-build last summer.  They may be the guys to talk to when it comes to setting something up here in the River City...

Re: Richmond VA ride and swap

I spoke to the guys and they are putting another Swap together.  They don't have a date yet but said they would email me to let me know and update the site. 
Hoping more BMX this year will be around.
If I see the flyer come out i'll post it here.

Re: Richmond VA ride and swap

I want to do Richmond stuff too! Maybe we should get our own city thread? Anyone ever ride the course down in churchhill? or the new one on Belle isle?

I'm friends with the Ride Richmond people, one of the head people is my neighbor even. I'm just getting into BMX, but I also ride road bikes and do their events and stuff.

I went to this swap last year, I wanted one BMX seat but it got bought literally right in front of me.

But I did get this awesome pad for my Peugeot Pipeline!

Re: Richmond VA ride and swap

I'm on Southside but rarely ride.  Only have a couple 20 inch bikes so don't cruise much. Maybe we can all get up a weekend before or after the DC ride and hang in the fan.

I'll be there to Watch.  We should contact them about setting up a tent for Old School bike to show off.  I'd bring a bike or two.
