This is the final newsletter before the gigantic bike race taking over Richmond from! Here’s the deal: you WILL be able to get to the comic store, as well as most of your favorite Richmond spots! But there will be certain times during each day that it’ll be a little tough to get around. Please arm yourself with knowledge-- to avoid frustration, heartache and disappointment. Here’s some handy intel:
com/ has all the information about which roads are closed on which days for what time spans. They’re saying that roads will open up the second the last racer crosses the finish line, so I am choosing to take them at their word on that.
* through we will stay OPEN UNTIL ! This will give you a chance to come in a little later, after the hype of each day’s race calms down, usually by .
*Check our facebook page daily for timely traffic reports-- facebook.com/velocitycomics
