nothing - we're rolling!



Can't keep a secret?? Perfect! Because it's a surprise birthday bike ride this Saturday morning and everyone is invited! 

We have an 8 year old turning 9 who I believe is now a cyclist for life due to Bike Clark County, VBC and its members and those who ride with our Social 10 group. This kiddo consistently attended Jan's safety series rides this year and continues to attend our Social 10 rides. She loves VBC. And she LOVES BIKING! 

Come join us in celebrating her 9th birthday this Saturday. Let's RIDE TOGETHER! 
Please check the calendar as we will be adding all paces and lengths of rides.

Yes, a small birthday gift is welcome and should be handed to mom for opening later.

OH! my ride.. almost forgot. We start at the Starbucks parking lot near Albertsons in Salmon Creek. We have a hill at the end at the WSU campus, but it can be walked - no problem. And what goes up must come down.. so there's a short fun downhill after that. 

Route subject to minor changes:

  Contact me if you have any difficulty.  Our registration collects your waiver signature AND emergency contact information.  Important!

Please arrive 15 minutes early (no later than 9:45AM) to be part of the announcements and safety briefing.
⦁ Bring a bike in good working order (pump up those tires), wear your helmet (REQUIRED), and tuck in some water and a tube that fits your wheel.
⦁ The published pace is 10mph. This is the maximum speed of the ride; a rider should be able to sustain this speed on flat terrain with no wind.
⦁ This is a group ride meaning that riders stay together at the published pace for the entire ride; we will regroup at tops of hills and after turns if needed to keep the group TOGETHER.


Please arrive 15 minutes early to be a part of the announcements and safety briefing. Riders are expected to have read the Safe Riding Policy and be familiar with the Ride Style Definitions. Please direct questions to the ride leader or Road Captain. Helmets are required. Lights (front and rear), RoadIDs and cell phones are recommended.

Remember - we want to be awesome representatives for cycling and spread a love for our great sport locally by obeying all traffic laws and riding in a safe and courteous manner. Ride safely and have fun!
