For Your Safety:
Helmets are mandatory.
Non-members must sign the waiver before the ride, see Ride Host for waiver.
Please come prepared with: route slip, fluids, snacks, spare tubes, tire pump, and other gear necessary for incidental repairs. Cell phones and money are recommended.
GVC welcomes riders of almost all abilities to participate in Club Rides. Club Rides are structured and place considerable emphasis on prior planning and rider safety.. Club rides are generally held every Saturday and Sunday, starting from the parking lot on the SE corner of Green Valley Parkway and Pebble Road in Henderson. Club ride start times vary depending upon time of year and weather conditions; so please check the specific day and ride for the start time. We try to start pedaling at the start time, so if you need prep time, it is best to arrive early.
If a GVC ride leader/host is not present at the start of the ride, the ride is no longer considered a GVC ride. Cyclists present may continue on a ride together; but the GVC is not responsible for any aspect of the ride.
After Club Rides, we typically gather at the Starbuck's patio for refreshments and social time.
Riders are expected to come prepared with fluids, snacks, spare tubes, tire pumps, and other gear necessary for incidental repairs. Helmets are mandatory. Cell phones and extra cash are recommended. Failure to come prepared for a ride places you and your fellow riders at unnecessary risk.
The following descriptions have been established as a way to help riders choose a ride that will meet their own personal goals and objectives. Distance, pace, challenge, regroup points, and sweeper are the criteria used by the ride leaders in planning rides.
(A) Distance 35+ miles, 18+mph, moderate to difficult routes and/or climbs, may regroup at top of major climbs, may or may not have rest stops. Must be self sufficient, no sweeper.
(B) Distance 25+ miles, 14+mph, moderate routes, and/or climbs, rest stop midway, may regroup on occasion. Should be self sufficient, no sweeper. Ride leader may on occasion sweep.
(C) Distance 15+ miles, 12+mph, easy to moderate routes, and/or climbs, may re-group on occasion, rest stop midway, ride leader usually sweeps.
(D) New Riders Ride: Distance 10-15 miles, 10+mph, easy routes, usually flat, re-group along the route as needed. Group usually stays together. Ride leader also sweeps or assigns a sweeper.
Note: +/- next to the letter indicates the ride is similar in nature with some variation, such as same route and distance, but a slightly slower pace.
