Charlottesville Bicycle Club


Information For Visitors


We warmly welcome guests and visitors to join one of our scheduled rides.  Our club supplemental medical and liability insurance policy covers non-members for their first ride only.  To qualify for this you need to sign a waiver ahead of your ride.  

Requests for Visitors

  • Sign a waiver (above).  After signing, you will receive an email with a link to the signed document.  You do not need to bring a copy with you; it will be available on-line.

  • Show up at least 15 minutes before the starting time.  Bring a road-worthy bicycle, a helmet, and adequate fluids. Lights and a rear-view mirror are highly recommended, as is wearable identification, such as a Road ID. Often, but not always, we will pass a store at some point on the ride where we can stop for refreshments.

  • Be prepared to fix a flat tire by carrying a pump, a spare inner tube and/or patch kit, tire levers, etc. Even if you don’t know how to fix it yourself, you should have the necessary equipment so other riders can help you. Let a member know before the ride starts if you would need assistance.

  • Familiarize yourself beforehand with the route. We don’t expect you to memorize it, but cue sheets and maps for each route are available on its respective web page and each rider should have at least one or the other (or preferably both).

  • Review the New Rider Information and Safety Information. Although the more experienced riders are expected to help ensure the safety of the group, ultimately you, and not the other riders or the CBC, are responsible for your own personal safety.
