Last night I attended a board meeting for the 2015 Victor Valley Bicycle Tour (VVBT). Having been on the board of previous high desert bicycle events, I was extremely impressed by the organizers and their preparation even in these early stages, and excited by the progress they have made toward bringing this ride to life.

Before I go any further, save this date: Saturday, October 24, 2015.


The 2015 VVBT will offer five route options. These are:

Ride Distance Climbing SAG stops Cost
100 101 miles 3,567 feet 4 $50
50 54 miles 1,862 3 $40
25 23 miles 971 1 $30
10 10 miles Unk. 0 $20
Kid’s n/a flat n/a Free

The proceeds of this event will be used to raise awareness of safe bicycling in our communities and promote cycling as a healthy lifestyle for both recreation and transportation.

There will also be start/finish line activities (including a carnival and BMX exhibition), with available hotel accommodations at the Courtyard by Marriott for anyone who need a place to stay. You can invite all of your out-of-town cycling buddies to join you for this one.

Registration is not yet set up, but you will be able to register on-line through, as well as in person at the site, starting the night before the ride.

I will be publishing updates here as I get them, or you can go to the ride’s website:
