Eagle Vail Road Bike
Calendar & Group Rides

Venture Sports is happy to provide you with this summer calendar that highlights a number of cycling events. Eagle and Vail road bike rides of all levels that are fun for everyone. Additionally, we will sponsor our normal shop ride each Thursday morning. Check the schedule or contact Garrett for questions at gfonda2@mac.com. The schedule below is always subject to change, but it should give you an idea of where and how long we plan to ride. The Garmin link is so that you can see the general route and the elevation for each ride.

After our experiment with our shop rides being on Wednesdays last year, we are returning to Thursdays for 2019. 

We meet at Venture Sports in Avon (100 W. Beaver Creek Blvd) around 8:45 with a departure time of 9:00. After the first of July, we may begin 30 minutes earlier, leaving at 8:30. All rides are weather permitting, but we will try to ride under most conditions. These rides are designed to improve your fitness over the course of the summer and meet some new friends who enjoy the sport of riding road bikes. These are not “hammerfests” and WE DO NOT LEAVE ANYONE BEHIND.

Not only are these fun group rides that are a great way to meet other riders but also good training rides for those who are planning on doing the Triple Bypass.
