“First Timer’s” No-Drop C and Beginner Ride, White Hall – Nortonsville, Counter-Clockwise (10/17/30, D/C, MF or H, No Drop)

10/30/2022 @ 10:00 am

New to CBC?  Haven’t joined a group ride yet and want to learn what it’s all about?  Just want to meet and ride with friendly folks?  CBC is teaming up with Blue Ridge Cyclery to offer multiple ride options for beginners and C-paced riders.  These are “no drop” rides.

Learn some new cycling skills on a mostly flat out and back on Sugar Hollow Road (10 miles total), add 7 more miles with an out-and-back to Beaver Creek reservoir, or take on a scenic (and moderately hilly) 30-mile loop.   All rides will be accompanied by CBC members and/or Blue Ridge Cyclery staff.  This is a great opportunity for cyclists wanting to learn about group riding and/or CBC.  Light refreshments will be provided post-ride.

10/17 mile option:

30-mile option:  This scenic Albemarle County route follows the same roads as the 30 mile White Hall – Dyke route, but starts from a different location.  We’ll ride the loop in the counter-clockwise direction.

  1. Hello,
    I will be joining the ride tomorrow. Thanks for hosting this. Aiming to do the 30 miles.

  2. I’ll come for at least the 17 mile, but I’ll be riding up from Crozet along Brownsville Turnpike so I’ll cover half of the Beaver Creek segment on my own.

  3. plan to come- 10 mile probably – if its more flat may try to do longer one – but waiting for my new bike to come in, so still riding antique one!

    1. In case anyone is taking a head count, I won’t be able to make the 10/30 ride after all… hoping to ride with the group soon!

  4. Patti and I will lead a C-paced group on the 17-miler. Join us, and as an extra benefit, learn about the unique challenges and joys of riding a tandem… or drafting behind one!

  5. Hello! I would love to join the group ride. I am thinking the 17 mile option.

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.
