Promote your Rides, Races, Events, and More
Help us help you broaden your group’s reach and in doing so provide a fuller range of options for folks interested in getting involved in the local cycling scene. Please help us share your group’s cycling-related events with the whole cycling community by linking your event calendar to ours on BikeCharlottesville.org
.Publishing your group’s cycling-related event(s) on a google calendar linked to our site makes good sense. More eyeballs = more participants, volunteers, racers, community meeting attendees, party-goers, etc. To share your event’s / group’s google calendar with Bike Charlottesville, drop a note firstname.lastname@example.org
and specify the gmail address associated with the calendar. Even if you only have one event or an intermittent ride schedule, it’s simple and worthwhile to create a calendar
and share it
with us.We’re hoping to hear from:
- Organizers of all of the area cycling events & races (Jeff Cup, Wintergreen Ascent, Tour de Madison, Cap2Cap, BikeMS, Boys & Girls Club Cycling Challenge, Dr. 100, VAHS Mtb Series,Charlottesville Bike Camp, Shenandoah Valley Century, Tour de Valley, Bike Rodeo, and plenty more)
- Bloomfield Road Riders
- Blue Ridge Cyclery Racing (and Shop Beginner Rides)
- Charlottesville Bicycle Club
- Charlottesville Bike Polo
- Charlottesville Social Rides
- Charlottesville Tri Club
- Fortuna Cycling
- Mad Cyclists
- Performance Bike Store Rides
If you would like to help with wrangling these cats, PLEASE drop a note to email@example.com
Social Rides in the Works

Please share any suggestions you might have with us firstname.lastname@example.org. Are you a hospitality team of one? Do you know your ABC-Quick Check backwards and forwards? Like to be the Den Mother and ride in sweep position? We’d love to have you on our team!
May is Bike Month, oh yeah!
We want this May to be our biggest Bike Month to date and to do that we’re going to need as many helping hands as possible. Can you step up and help with volunteer coordination, event planning, or other support activities? We need your help! Hit us up at email@example.com if you can pitch in. Thanks!
