‘Henrico In Motion’ bike event scheduled for May 14


The Henrico portion of the Virginia Capital Trail officially opened last fall along Route 5, and bikers, runners, walkers and others quickly have turned it into a preferred mode of transportation through Eastern Henrico.

But there’s one last unofficial portion of the trail that will open to the public for the first time next week, and Henrico County officials are planning to celebrate it in style.

They’ll join with members of the public at Dorey Park Saturday, May 14, to dedicate a trail marker and the 0.4-mile connector trail that links the park to the Capital Trail. The event is part of Henrico In Motion, which also will feature a BMX Pros stunt show, a bike safety rodeo, live music and other events. > Read more.
