Louisville Velo Club Rides
Our Saturday (10:00 AM) rides are a Louisville institution. Come join us! Rides require a bike in good working order, water, and a helmet. We also suggest a spare tube, a pump, and energy foods and beverages. Typically, weekend rides are held throughout the winter; the general exception is when it rains or snows on the morning of the ride. If in doubt, give us a call at the shop. We look forward to seeing you!

1518: Pace is a steady 15 to 18 MPH. The group will start and finish together, often pausing at the top of long climbs. THESE ARE NO-ABANDON RIDES!
About Louisville Velo Club
The Louisville Velo Club (LVC) is an established club with the American Cycling Association (ACA). Our goal with LVC is to introduce new riders to the sport of cycling, providing structure within a relaxed and social atmosphere in order to allow riders to develop their skills and abilities. Louisville Velo Club is perhaps best described as a "European" style road club: not all members race, but most like to ride hard! However, we do welcome and encourage riders of all levels.
