Bike Lane and Trail Maintenance

Steve Lambert

As a Bicycle Friendly Community, Virginia Beach celebrates our commitment to bringing more connectivity and trails to area residents. Find a new reason to ride and check out the city maps below to find a new trail to explore, and if you're feeling ambitious, take the National Bike Challenge from May to September.

“Active transportation” is a means of getting around that is powered by human energy, primarily walking and bicycling.

  • Shared use paths
  • Protected bike lanes
  • Side paths
  • Bike lanes
  • Recreational routes
