FINDING A ROUTE

If you’re new to biking, getting from home to work or to the grocery store may seem like a big challenge, especially if you don’t know which route to take. The New River Valley Planning District Commission (NRVPDC) published an award-winning Bikeway, Walkway and Blueway Plan, which contains a series maps for bike route and multi-use trails around the region.  Click on the image below to view the series of maps prepared by the NRVPDC.

DIRECTIONS IN GOOGLE 

Turn by turn biking directions are available through Google Bike Maps.
Transit directions are also available through Google Transit.

 

PUBLIC TRANSIT

Using a bicycle in combination with the expanding public transit system in the New River Valley opens up opportunities to seek better employment, education, medical care, food choices and child care by traveling greater distances. The following bus and van services are connecting towns and villages throughout the region.

 

USING A BIKE RACK ON PUBLIC TRANSIT

Some people are hesitant to take their bicycles on the bus, because they don’t know how to use the front bike rack.  This transit video shows exactly how easy the bike racks on buses are to use.  If you still have questions, please feel free to stop by the Bike Kitchen for assistance.
