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

October 30 @ 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: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/41304815

30-mile option: https://www.charlottesvillebicycleclub.org/white-hall-nortonsville/.  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.

    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.

    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!

NOTE: As of 01/01/2022, we have become a member-supported club.  We encourage all of our cycling friends to join us.  For new riders, our club insurance covers non-members of the club for their first ride only.  Thanks.

We are planning additional rides each week, so stay tuned!  If you are interested in helping to organize a group ride for the Club, please contact us!

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 tail light, 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 road side.  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.

Here is the regional map of Starting Points page.
