When & Where
Please note - In response to the need for "social distancing" the Mid-Valley Bicycle Club has canceled all events and weekly rides for now. While riding in a pack may bring us in close contact, riding solo or in small spread out groups is still a safe and healthy activity. Here is an article about that - https://www.bicycling.com/news/a31469228/cycling-during-coronavirus/
The Mid-Valley Bicycle Club hosts weekly rides on Saturdays & Wednesdays, throughout the year.
Please see the RIDE SCHEDULE for all Start-Times & Route Plans
We ride rain or shine, and everyone is welcome to join! If you are not a club member and you'd like to ride as a GUEST, please complete the Liability Waiver Agreement at waiver.mvbc.com before you ride. Everyone should review our ride policies for a listing of ride group values, practices, and safety requirements.
Club insurance through the League of American Bicyclist covers rides with a designated leader that are open to all club members, and includes rides listed on the club ride calendar or tours sponsored by the club.
Weekly ride information appears below. Information about other annual rides, including the Rolling Feast, Ride of Silence, Midge Cramer Ride, and Corvallis Spring Roll, is posted at annual.mvbc.com. You may also be interested in our annual tours!
If you want to become a member of the MVBC, something we definitely encourage, please visit join.mvbc.com. Everyone is welcome in this club!
Each Saturday throughout the year there are three rides. The start times move around to adapt to daylight hours and temperature. Generally there is a Fall/Winter/Spring schedule (October – May) and a different Summer schedule (June – September). So check the calendar for specifics.
Unless noted otherwise, Saturday morning rides depart at 15 minutes past the hour from the Osborn Aquatic Center. People usually start congregating 15 minutes prior. Ride duration is variable, and is typically several hours. There are generally three rides of varying length and speed:
- Fast Ride: This group usually follows the posted route and is fast paced so jump in and hang on if you can.
- Moderate Ride: This group usually follows the posted route and is a medium paced ride that typically breaks to regroup once or twice along the way.
- Social Ride: This group typically develops multiple routes at the start of the ride. It is a slower paced ride that regroups often and leaves no one behind.
Wednesday morning rides run all year long and are typically 40 – 60 miles at a moderate pace with at least one regroup. Unless noted otherwise, Wednesday rides depart at 15 minutes past the hour from the Osborn Aquatic Center. Check the MVBC-Calendar for specifics.
