CBC Member Summer Picnic

Sat Jul 13 @ 8:00 am - 2:00 pm

Join us for the third annual CBC member summer picnic!  Come ride with us and then join us for a catered picnic lunch, or just join us for the lunch.  Bring your family and join the fun!  The picnic is rain or shine.

We have reserved the covered pavillion behind Maybelle’s Market at 8609 Dyke Road, Dyke, VA 22935.  Please park in the gravel lot across the street from the store.   Locally owned Maybelle’s Market will supply lunch (free to members and their families) beginning at 11:30 am, consisting of an assortment of sandwich wraps, cheese/fruit trays, salads and cookies.  The club will provide bottled water and drinks.  Feel free to bring a favorite appetizer or snack to share post ride before lunch comes out.  Please RSVP by July 6 by sending an email to info@charlottesvillebicycleclub.org with the number of adults and children who will attend.

Due to the road closure at Boonesville Rd and Simmons Gap Rd for a bridge replacement, we had to modify the routes for this year.

We will have the following ride options (click on the links for the RideWithGPS pages):

The 43 mile (B Pace) and 35 mile (C Pace) routes start at 8:00am.

43-Picnic2024

35-Picnic2024

The 21 mile (D Pace) route for casual riders will start at 8:30am.

NOTE:  We officially cancel rides only if we consider conditions to be unsafe (high winds, ice/snow, etc.).  Otherwise rides take place whether or not people comment about attending.  Each member should make their own decision about riding based on the forecast.

Important Reminder

Be sure to have the route on your phone or bike computer, and/or have a map or cue sheet.

Ride Classification

For details on how group rides are categorized, check out the Ride Classification guidelines.

Requirements For Riders

All riders are required to have a helmet; a taillight, Road ID and a rear-view mirror is strongly recommended.  You are also expected to have adequate fluids and a road-worthy bicycle in good repair.  Many rides, but not all, will include the opportunity to stop at a store to replenish supplies.

You should be prepared to fix a flat tire and perform other minor repairs on the roadside.  If you are new to cycling and are not comfortable with these procedures, don’t let that stop you.  However, you might want to talk to a more experienced member before the ride so the group is prepared to help if necessary.

Safety On The Road

The club considers safety to be our very highest priority.  Please review the information on the Safety Page before you join us for a ride.

We hope that you will find this site helpful; your questions and comments are welcomed.

Scheduling

Start times are based on seasonal averages.  Because of the inability to ensure everyone is informed of a last-minute change, scheduled rides will not change based on predicted weather and temperature.  Also, club rides generally will not show as “canceled” on the calendar.  All riders have their personal thresholds for temperature, wind, and moisture, and are expected to use their best judgment about whether to ride on a given day.  CBC encourages all members to exercise caution.  If in doubt, please use the comment section on the ride calendar page to communicate with other potentially interested riders.
