*SPECIAL EXTRA NIGHT* - We ride tonight from Camas Bike and Sport (in Camas) with Ed, the owner, practicing our skills, and maybe riding out to the dike.
We return to the shop and can opt to stay for one of Ed's Maintenance Clinics also happening that night. I've taken one here and learned a lot including the most popular topic: how to fix a flat! The class is limited to 12, so sign up to learn and enjoy a discount after the evening's clinic too. For all details and to sign up, click here.
You will love Ed and want to visit him and his shop again.
What do I need to bring?
Bring your bike in good working order and your helmet. You might also consider bringing a bottle of water and some way to carry it as you ride and a small snack. If you have front / rear lights for your bike, great. We recommend them for safety, but lights aren’t a deal-breaker. Helmets ARE required for all VBC rides.
Is there a fee? Is membership in the club required?
No. All VBC rides are free with the exception of the Ride Around Clark County. You do not have to be a club member and there is no requirement that you plan to join the club.
Where do we ride?
The routes will change to allow the riders some new scenery and new challenges to hone their skills.
Riding a bike on the road can be scary and it can be hard to get started on your own. We attempt to take the fear out of the experience by supporting the group with experienced ride leaders, providing good routes and tips, and promising to never leave a rider behind. By riding with coaches and others new to cycling, we hope to help each rider identify their goals and reach them, whether you’re starting your triathlete career or riding to the grocery store.
