A meaningful journey: Two men embarked on a 90 mile kayak trip to honor late mother

Last Thursday afternoon, two kayaks, paddled by two middle-aged men, pulled up to the Dutch Gap boat landing right off the James River in Chester. Sun burnt and damp, they had just concluded a four-day, 90-mile aquatic adventure which began in Suffolk, Va., early Monday morning; yet their energy confirmed they could have gone on for days.

Cyclists cruise Chesterfield on Spirit 76 Ride

Showers weren’t predicted for last Saturday morning, but the early morning rain did not keep serious bike riders away from CCHASM’s Spirit 76 Ride. The ride, with the starting point at Chester Baptist Church’s parking lot, gave bikers a choice of either a 76-mile ride or a 40-mile ride through southern Chesterfield County.
