Workshops and Events
RamBikes hosts workshops on various do-it-yourself bike repair topics throughout the year. Workshops range in difficulty and there's something for everyone! Other events include group rides, day trips, and campus bike fairs.
Every year the Office of Sustainability runs a session for the Mary and France's Youth Center's Discovery Camp. For the past two years, we have been able to have our Mayor's Youth Academy interns at RamBikes, teach the campers bike safety and mechanics.

As Part of VCU's biking policy, all abandoned bikes on campus are brought to and managed by RamBikes. At RamBikes, we have tried to find new and innovative ways to reuse parts and rebuild the bikes to support some of our programs.

In 2019, RamBikes hosted "The Pride Ride", a community bike parade and celebration of RVA Bike Month and Pride. For 2020, we were excited to see what the second iteration of this event would become. Despite the limitations of the time, we were able to find a creative and engaging solution to still host the Pride Ride in a way that was open and enjoyable to everyone.
