A Robust Calendar. LBC has a large schedule of rides. It is very rare that there is day without a scheduled LBC ride somewhere in the Louisville area and frequently there are several each day. Most rides are consistently scheduled and are organized with the utilization of a Google Calendar. Each ride description includes links to our club’s RideWithGPS account where additional ride information, cuesheets, GPS routes, and maps can be accessed.
LBC Ride Series. In addition to our online schedule, LBC maintains multiple ride series throughout the year. This includes a Brevet series as well as the famous Mad Dog series. The Mad Dogs tackle 21 challenging century rides per year! Are you up for the challenge?
Friendships. LBC is about people. In our organization you will experience camaraderie, companionship, and make new lifelong friendships.
A Ton of Events. The Louisville Bicycle Club hosts many events beyond just organized calendar rides. These include the annual Polar Bear Ride and Chili Cook Off on January 1st of each year and the Annual Picnic Ride with our general club meeting and picnic following. We host a signature event known as the OKHT and we end the year with an Annual Meeting and Awards Banquet.
“Oh Captain My Captain”. LBC offers ride captain training and the opportunity to lead rides.
Ride with GPS Club Account. Club members are granted access to select features on club routes. When you are a club member you will be able to get turn by turn voice navigation and offline maps on the app, advanced turn notifications on Garmin files, PDF map and cuesheets, and estimated time on club routes for free. These are premium services that typically cost an individual a monthly subscription but are free to our members through our club account.
