Hello and Welcome to 3 Day Bike About.
First off, a HUGE shout out to everyone who participated in our first 3 Day Bike About event in June 2021. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
As the saying goes, “Build it and they will come.” We did and so did you. The weather was great (as in no rain) and you helped us raise over $4,000 for The Arc of Greater Williamsburg.
We had so much fun hosting you in Williamsburg we plan to do it again next year, just a little earlier…like April. We are already working on the details and taking your comments and suggestions into account. We sincerely hope to see you in 2022.

That’s me. I’m the writer, bookkeeper, list maker, idea person, “no, Cynthia, there is no need to panic,” and road cyclist. I was raised in Virginia but spent the middle half of my life in Southern California. I have two adult sons, only one of which shares my passion for cycling. (Very likely you will also meet them at 3 Day Bike About as I “encourage” them to volunteer a lot.) I met Cynthia in 2015 when I first started volunteering at Bike Virginia. It was clear to me she could use some help, so I pitched in and never looked back.
In my former life: Worked for “the man.” Yes, I was a bona fide Special Agent with the U. S. Secret Service, among other agencies in the U. S. government. I’d tell you all about it, but well, you know what happens then……After that illustrious career, I raised my sons and became a Professional Volunteer – long list there. And now I’m here…..with Cynthia and friends.
Cynthia is a diehard mountain biker and self-supported bike camping enthusiast. And where she goes, oftentimes you will find her immediate family, consisting of her husband of 49 years, two adult daughters and their respective husbands as well. They love traveling, camping, and biking together. They also like karaoke. I speak from personal experience when I say they are a blast to be around. You will meet the entire Bashton clan at 3 Day Bike About. (I told you they travel together. 😊 )
She is also the designer of the website, the jerseys, social media, and anything else that is beyond my comprehension and ability.
In her former life: That list is pretty long and diverse so let’s just say she’s originally from Texas and spent 7 years with Bike Virginia as the Health and Safety Coordinator until last year (you know, 2020, when everything got canceled).
