When & Where
Weekly ride schedules appear below. We ride rain or shine! Please monitor our ride calendar and announcements (see the email page) for route information, changes, and other important ride details. Contact the Ride Captain, at firstname.lastname@example.org, if you have questions.
Weekly ride groups may self-organize and choose from the routes listed in the ride calendar or the routes table, or may agree on a custom route at the start of the ride. For more information on available routes, please see the routes page. Our annual touring events are described at the tours page.
Unless noted otherwise in the ride calendar or in a message to our announce list (see the email page), ALL Saturday & Wednesday rides depart and finish at the Osborn Aquatic Center near the corner of Circle Boulevard and Highland Drive, in Corvallis, Oregon.
Summer (Jun-Sep) Saturday rides meet at 8am and 9am. The rest of the year (Oct-May) Saturday rides omit the 8AM option and Tenners Ride switches back to 10am. Always check the calendar to confirm actual start plan and ride details for any given date.
Unless noted otherwise, Saturday morning rides depart at 15 minutes past the hour from the entrance to the Osborn Aquatic Center near the corner of Circle Blvd and Highland. Ride DURATION is VARIABLE, and is typically several hours.
8am Ride (Jun-Sep only): This group usually follows the ride calendar route and is fast paced, so jump in and hang on if you can.
9am Ride (All Year): This group usually follows the ride calendar route and is a medium paced ride that typically breaks to regroup once or twice along the way.
Tenners Ride (All Year): This group typically develops multiple routes at the start of the ride and is a slower paced social ride that regroups often and leaves no one behind. Starts 10am Oct-May and 9am Jun-Sep (to beat the heat).
The Tuesday ride meets for coffee by 9:00 am at the Sweet Taste Bakery & Coffee House in Adair Village, OR (see map & directions) with the ride starting around 9:15 am. This is a moderate paced ride with several regroups. The route follows a 27 mile loop that goes through North Albany, over the bridge to Bryant and Riverside Drives, and along the Hwy 34 bike path. More route detail is available at routes-table.mvbc.com (click the "Other" routes tab). Most riders are back home by noon. This ride will be scheduled weekly from April through the end of September.
Wednesday morning rides depart at 9:00 am from the Osborn Aquatic Center unless otherwise announced. Rides are typically 30-60 miles at a moderate pace with at least one regroup.
