HomeAbout Our Rides

How fast and far do you ride?

From April through September, our event calendar is full of a variety of ride opportunities - although rides can be scheduled anytime weather permits, even in January!

Leaders plan morning, afternoon and evening rides during weekdays and on weekends. Anyone in the club can lead a ride at any pace, distance or location. Contact Ride Director at for more information and/or to add a ride to the calendar.

See the Event Calendar for details on all of our scheduled rides.


What are the requirements for riders?

  • Riders must wear approved helmets.
  • Personal radios and loudspeakers are not permitted.
  • Before deciding to join, non-members are always welcome to try one or two of FVBSC's organized rides with a signed waiver and a helmet. Consult the monthly calendar for the time and start location of all scheduled rides, as well as meetings and social activities.

What does the speed range mean for a ride pace? 

The average speed you can expect on the ride is posted using a range. Your rolling speed will be a little higher than the average speed because it takes into consideration the times you slow down to stop and gradually pick up your speed after stopping. Also, the terrain on the route and weather will influence your average, for example hills, headwind, trails will reduce your average; tailwinds and long straight stretches of good pavement will increase your average.
Paces = Average Speed
   < 10 mph
   10-12 mph
   12-14 mph
   14-16 mph
   16-17+ mph
