New Jordan Bridge Hike & Bike Event

HB logo

The community is invited to explore the region's tallest bridge with its sweeping panoramic views during the new South Norfolk Jordan Bridge Hike & Bike event! Held from 8 - 10 am on Sunday, October 11th, the morning outing welcomes guests on foot, bike, stroller or wagon to traverse the mile-long crossing of the Elizabeth River's Southern Branch. All vehicle traffic will be restricted beginning at 7:00 am to ensure safe pedestrian access during the fall family event.

Play bridge trivia and SNJB "I Spy" with our Bridge Ambassadors while you walk the deck, or head down to ground level where the Elizabeth River Park features a kids' coloring station and more. Visitors also will be encouraged to register for the new Jordan Bridge Athletic Club, a healthy lifestyle initiative built around the bridge's free Pedestrian Walkway, that provides complimentary rewards for participants' healthy gains.

Refreshments are available for sale in the Park's Ship Store, and free parking is available in the park (carpools are encouraged). Pets on a leash are welcomed, but skateboards, scooters and roller blades are not permitted on the bridge.

Volunteers are needed in two-hour shifts (7:30 - 9:30 or 8:30 - 10:30 am) to serve as Bridge Ambassadors and staff water stations, Athletic Club registration or kids activity areas.
