The mission of the Fox Valley Bicycle & Ski Club (FVBSC) is to encourage, educate and promote safe recreation, fitness and alternative transportation while preserving our precious natural resources.  Our purpose is to promote the general interest of cycling and skiing, educate and inform the community about safety, rules of the road, maintenance, etiquette and more.  We work with governmental and cycling organizations to defend the rights of cyclists, promote bike trails and lanes, and help formulate bicycle legislation and support infrastructure development.  We contribute to the community through volunteerism and donations and promote good fellowship and lasting friendships.  See our most recent newsletter here.
 

RIDES

Rides are offered in a variety of formats, including road, trail, gravel and Zwift rides in various distances and speeds all throughout the week.  Our goal is to provide safe and diverse rides that appeal to all types of cyclists, ranging from beginner/casual to advanced.  Although the majority of our rides run from mid-April to October (depending upon weather), we do schedule rides anytime weather permits, including during weekends in the winter months.  Most rides occur in the Fox Valley area, but out-of-town day rides or group trips are offered as well.  Bios of our exceptional ride leaders can be found here.  Please utilize our Events Calendar as your ride information resource.  Questions?  Contact our Ride Director at rides@fvbsc.org for more information.

FVBSC offers 15 regularly-scheduled standing rides per week, ranging from novice/casual to advanced. There is something for everyone!  Newer riders are encouraged to start in the novice/casual group to learn basic cycling techniques, safety protocols and group ride dynamics.  Many members quickly advance to intermediate rides, where skill, strength and endurance building happen. Experienced riders enjoy faster speeds, longer distances and higher elevations, often in a single or double pace line.  All of our rides (except Advanced) are “No Drop” rides, meaning you will never get left behind. 



WINTER ACTIVITIES 

Winter is upon us!  Please check out our Winter Activities pages, including information on cross country skiing, snowshoeing, downhill skiing and snowboarding.  We also offer winter trail cycling (as conditions permit) and fat tire cycling.  Please utilize our Events Calendar as your ski information resource.  Questions?  Contact our Winter Activities Director at skichair@fvbsc.org
