The cool, fall day was perfect for the HEAV Bike-a-Thon from Charles City Courthouse to Berkeley Plantation–the site of our nation’s first Thanksgiving in 1619. Visiting the historic plantation and its beautifully maintained grounds on the James River was like stepping back into another time.

Some families both biked and toured the plantation–others just came to the plantation portion. A big “thank you” to everyone who participated!
