Perseid Meteor Shower Bike Tour

Jul 1, 2018 | News

Sign up for a scenic and challenging ride along the Virginia Capital Trail, on August 10 and 11,  then camp under the stars to watch the Perseid Meteor Shower! JRPS Adventure Staff departs from Reedy Creek Visitors Center on Friday afternoon at 3:00 pm and travels to Chickahominy Riverfront Campground, where the sky is dark, and conditions are best to experience this annual sky show. The Perseid Meteor Shower is created when the earth passes through the cloud of debris left by the Swift-Tuttle comet. At its peak, you can expect to see between 60 and 100 meteors per hour. We’ll return to the city on our bikes Saturday morning. You can bring your own bike or borrow one of ours!

The price for this trip is $40, which includes food for two days and transportation of your belongings to the campground, plus vehicle support in case of emergency. This does not include camping fees. Reservations are required. For more information and to register contact [email protected].
