From Felicia Feaster’s July 2018 article Bucket List Richmond: Our Don't-Miss Essentials
What a thrill to be included in this wonderful list and to meet Felicia. Here is her bit about us below. For a Link to the full article with all the wonderful “don’t miss” items. Whether you are visiting RVA or a local you will find this list essential!
Basket & Bike
Experience Richmond in an intimate, healthy way by renting a charming 3-speed bike from the locavore company Basket & Bike run by the gracious and gregarious Anne Poarch. "Bicycling quietly through Richmond gives you the beautiful opportunity to see things you might miss from the car," says Poarch, who will deliver your bikes to hotels and locations throughout the city (check the website for drop-off and pick-up availability). Bikes come with a helmet and lock. Our bike adventure took us from West Broad Street to the Edgar Allan Poe Museum and through historic neighborhoods to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and Carytown. Handy baskets allow you to stow your purchases and Poarch supplies cold water in stylish bottles supplied with each bike. If you want to add a guided tour or a picnic, Poarch can pack up some treats for a stop and there are ample places throughout the city to unsaddle and shop, walk, eat or take in a museum. Truly the best way to see this lovely city, just be mindful that not all drivers will be happy to see you and you need to exercise caution when biking in congested areas of the city.
