Grab a friend, and dress up like it's Halloween! There are prizes to be had... as it was our first time, we weren't aware of the culture surrounding the Ride.

From Our Editors

The Urban Assault Ride challenges cyclists to speed from obstacle course to obstacle course across their city during eco-friendly scavenger hunts that benefit local charities. Teams draft a road map to try to thwart the competition and be the first to complete the race, pausing at a series of checkpoints, where they must surmount such active roadblocks as slip 'n' slides, bike jousting, and reciting the Iliad in Pig Latin. The first team to conquer each challenge and cross the finish line is declared the victor, but all participants celebrate their efforts at a lively after-party stocked with snacks, beer, nonalcoholic drinks, and prizes.

The city of Richmond brings together the best of old and new. Its story spans over 400 years, and that has left the city with a unique blend of history, culture, and atmosphere. Never lacking in things to see and do, this Richmond guide shows there is something for everyone. Start exploring, and one will soon see there are plenty of things to do in Richmond.

For the history buff, Richmond is a treasure trove. Start by heading to the Virginia Historical Society, where people can immerse themselves in the story of the state. Or, take a stroll on Richmond’s 1.25-mile Canal Walk, which includes more than thirty markers and exhibits that reveal bits of the city’s past. A visit to the Virginia Capitol, designed by Thomas Jefferson, is also a wonderful way to bring history to life. If shopping is on the agenda, Richmond has tons of great venues. The downtown area offers Shockoe Slip, which was once a trading post in the 1600s. Today, the cobblestone streets are lined with boutiques, galleries, and gift shops. Also nearby is Shockoe Bottom, which offers the 17th Street Farmer’s Market, one of the oldest public markets in the country. Here, people can experience an eclectic blend of farm-fresh foods, unique gifts, and live entertainment.

Of the many Richmond things to do, dining is one of the most fun. Richmond literally offers a world of possibilities. If looking for traditional southern food, visit a hidden Family Secrets, where one can have delicious, sweet, and spicy barbecue. Or, have fried lake trout in the city at Croaker’s Spot. Whatever the craving, one will find it in Richmond. Also, be sure to check out Richmond deals for other great ideas and specials on several activities and dining options.
