Calling all cardinals, parrots, flamingos and swans! Take flight on bike with this free, costumed ride looping from Norfolk's Lafayette Park along the Elizabeth River Trail and back to the Virginia Zoo. This is a casual paced ride open to all skill levels. In accordance with current COVID safety guidelines, attendance is limited and advanced registration is required. Registered riders will also receive a $5 discount code to purchase timed tickets to the zoo anytime between April 17 and June 30, 2021. Prizes will be awarded for the best adult and youth costumes. Be creative and make sure your costume can really fly on wheels! Need inspiration for a bird costume? Click here to see the Zoo's feathered friends.
