The 23rd annual Bike Virginia tour is making its way from Staunton into Harrisonburg today, bringing approximately 2,000 cyclists along with it.
According to the Harrisonburg Tourism office, the economic impact of Bike Virginia in 2005 calculated at 3.1 million dollars for the five-day tour. The last time Bike Virginia visited Harrisonburg and Rockingham County was in 2004.
The group plans to set up a tent city on the Eastern Mennonite University campus Monday night, and stay in the Harrisonburg-Rockingham area through Wednesday.
