A slightly longer variation on the Keene-Esmont route, this ride has a nice balance of shady and open roads.

  1. Aims and I are planning to ride, but I modified the route to avoid riding on Rt. 20. It adds 4 miles and crosses at Keene to Coles Rolling Rd. to Blenheim Rd. to Irish Rd. then joins back up with the route in Scottsville. I saved this route on RWGPS if anyone wants to use it.
    The name is: 40-SvilleShortLoop – modified no 20.

    See you all later this morning.. 🙂


    1. Thanks, Mark. But that stretch of 20 isn’t bad; it’s mostly downhill or flat until you get close to the turn off onto Langhorne.

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.


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.
