Weather Cancels?

Ride cancelled for lightning, snow, or ice.


This is a social ride that explores a bit of Vancouver's charming oddity and then a friendly practice climb of McLoughlin hill for those might be intimidated to try it alone.  You can do it even if you find you need to hop off and walk.  McLoughlin is a key hill on many club routes.  Good to try it with us.

Route Link  You can see a map and get the cue sheet here.



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 safe riding policy and direct any questions or concerns to the ride leader.

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

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!
