Member Benefits

We maintain a ride calendar and post weekly schedules to the club's email list, but we provide more than just rides—we've organized grand tour watching parties, film screenings and talks on cycling, nutrition and travel.

The club organizes the annual Mountains of Misery and Burke's Garden Century events, and rides during the week for road cyclists and mountain bikers. Paid members receive a priority code to unlock early registration for Mountains of Misery.

Fix Fest & Bike Swap

For several years, NRVBA has hosted bi-annual bike swaps, where the community can to sell, buy or swap old or extra bikes and bike parts.

In 2010, we partnered with Ride Solutions, Sustainable Blacksburg and the Town of Blacksburg to host the Inaugural Fix Fest. Local bike shops are on hand to perform basic safety checks, tighten up loose components and lube chains.

Ride of Silence

The Ride of Silence, which is held in May during National Bike Month, aims to raise the awareness of motorists, police and city officials that cyclists have a legal right to the public roadways. The ride is also a chance to show respect for those who have been killed or injured.

Since 2008, NRVBA has partnered with Pathways for Radford to host a local Ride of Silence in conjunction with the national event.

Summer Cycling in Vermont

The annual Vermont Bicycling Vacation is a fun and affordable way to enjoy the beautiful New England summer for one or two weeks of cycling and fellowship. This socially-oriented trip is ideal for all skill levels and non-cyclists looking to recharge, relax and enjoy the many area attractions and activities.

The cycling trip includes lodging, meals, riding options, and other entertainment options. Each year the locations are rotated throughout the state, so returning participants can challenge themselves with new routes and terrain.
