About Us / Mission
"To enjoy and spread a passion for safe cycling in Vancouver and Clark County through group and event rides, giving, and community service."
The Vancouver Bicycle Club (VBC) is a diverse group of local cyclists committed to safe cycling in Vancouver and Clark County. We love to ride together and invite you to check out our calendar and join us for a group ride soon. You're also invited to come to our next club gathering to meet VBC members and enjoy some biking-related activities/discussions.
We have riders at every level from beginners to those who log several thousand miles a year, and each of our rides have friendly and qualified ride leaders to assist you with group riding.
Many of us appreciate the social aspects of cycling almost as much as the riding itself and many of our rides conclude with coffee, a beer or even a meal when time allows.
Our signature club ride is the Ride Around Clark County (RACC). It is held annually, typically during the good riding days of Summer. RACC is VBC’s charity fundraiser, and generally attracts between 500 and 1000 riders. We hope you'll join us for a truly great local ride, with routes ranging from 20 to 100 miles.
Safety is of primary concern in all that we do as a club. Our website emphasizes safety and offers multiple resources to serve members and features a calendar listing our group rides, events, and info on local biking activities.
VBC members have access to the "Buddies List," a members-only email forum for local cycling info, announcements, and impromptu rides.
Members also get discounts with local shops and partner businesses and have access to a large lending library of cycling books and DVDs.
If you're just beginning, are a regular rider, or an experienced rider coming back after time away, come ride with us!
