NOTE THE START:  New Seasons at 164th Ave and the TIME: 8am.  This is the same route we took all winter when it was cold and wet; now we're taking it because it's supposed to get HOT.  We climb only 2 tame hills which will be early in the ride and flat otherwise. Most streets en route have relatively few stop signs and we can enjoy swooping through the neighborhoods including the lovely downhill on Baypoint - no stop signs! We take Blairmont back up but it is gentle.    We ride together and re-group.


Registration is not required. You don't have to be a member to try us out but we'd ask that you join if you're riding with us consistently.



Please arrive 15 minutes before the start of the ride to sign up and be a part of the announcements and safety briefing.

Riders are expected to have read the club's Safe Riding Policy and  be familiar with club Ride Style Definitions. Please direct questions or concerns to the ride leader or our club Road Captain.

Helmets are required. Lights (front and rear), Road IDs, cell phones, tool kit, mirrors, and pump are recommended. Check your bike and gear before you come to make sure it's in good working order.  Seriously.

Ride leader will bring maps/cues to the ride.  You can see our route online at the Ride With GPS link above. Riders should be able to maintain the stated pace, but this is a "No rider left behind group." Please communicate with your leader if you decide to go off route.

Remember - we want to be awesome representatives of the cycling community in Clark County and spread a love and respect for our great sport by obeying all traffic laws and riding in a safe and courteous manner.  Ride safely and have fun!
