I learned a lot about the historical locations in Richmond.
Nice experience to visit the downtown area with some historical places. Excellent guide with a small group of bikers. The complimentary ice cream at the ice cream stop over was great. The shop is run traditionally by a 90 year oil lady. Overall a very good experience.
