What: Massanutten Saturday Morning trail work to happen bi-weekly on Saturday’s through the spring and summer.
Where: Massanutten Western Slope Trails built by the Shenandoah Valley Bicycle Coalition. We will be working on the Boundary Trail, the newest trail that connects VA 54 up to the pond.
When: Saturday, April 14 arrive at 8:50 for a 9 am start.
Why: Our volunteers built an amazing new trail yet again in 2017. As with all great things, it needs a little more love to make it even better. We will be working on patching some wet spots in an effort to make the trail more durable in all weather conditions.
Details: Western Slope trail work parties are held every other Saturday through the end of October! Bring water and sturdy boots/shoes. We’ll provide tools, gloves, etc. Hope to see you there!

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)
What: Figure a ride of about two hours with an ice cream stop thrown in there.
Ride Leader: contact Michael Neupauer (“Neups”) with any questions: [email protected] or 540-246-8835
