As a result of a conversation that Devin had with Scott Hewitt from the Columbian, a reporter/photographer will be at the start of the Frenchmen’s Bar ride tomorrow, 10:00 a.m. to photograph and report about our upcoming Ride Around Clark County (RACC) set for Saturday, July 27.


Ben Harrison has a ride on the VBC calendar and we are simply adding additional pace groups to his ride, specifically:


10-12 Jan Verrinder
