Richmond 2015 and DRIVE SMART Virginia have partnered to deliver an important safety message to pedestrians, bicyclists and motorists in the months before and during the 2015 UCI Road World Championships – Be Aware. Be Safe. Share the Road.
This fall, more than 1,000 elite cyclists from more than 70 countries will compete in Richmond from September 19th -27th in one of cycling’s pinnacle events. The race courses will span Henrico County, Hanover County and the City of Richmond.
DRIVE SMART Virginia created Virginia Bicyclist and Pedestrian Awareness Month seven years ago in recognition of the increasing number of people cycling, running and walking on Virginia roadways. Over time, hundreds have signed on as partners, including businesses, schools, law enforcement agencies and cycling clubs.
This initiative is funded by a grant from DMV: the Virginia Highway Safety Office.
The 2015 UCI Road World Championships will race in and around Richmond, Virginia from September 19th through September 27th.
Preparation for Virginia Bicyclist and Pedestrian Awareness Month begins now.
