Annual Ice Cream Ride

The REAL (or at least original) Annual SVBC Summer Ice Cream Ride will be held on August 18th. As for the past 2 decades, your bicycle Coalition will cover your ice cream after the ride. This ride is LONGER and brisker than the “Ice Cream Rides” associated with Bike Month. Plan on more of a Wednesday night social ride type of event (about two hours) but with ice cream after the ride.

When: Saturday August 12 @ 10:00am (NEW TIME)

Where: Meet at Wildwood Park in Bridgewater (648 W Bank St, Bridgewater, VA 22812)

Figure a ride of about two hours with an ice cream stop thrown in there.
