How can I find some people to ride with?
First off, join RVC and come out to an event or group ride. RVC manages several Facebook groups catering to different types of riding. These are your best bet for finding some group rides or others to ride with. You can find links to our various Facebook groups here. Several local bikes shops also organize group rides. Check with them directly for schedules.
What does RVC do with the membership fees?
All membership fees as well revenue from club events goes into supporting cycling in the region, such as buying tools and lumber for trail maintenance and supporting events and activities. A full Club budget is available to all members.

Does an RVC membership provide me with a racing license?
Joining RVC does not provide you with a UCI racing licence; a race licence must be purchased separately through Velo NB.
I’ve never participated in a race before. How do I know if I’m ready?
The course for the Woolastook 4 and the Hadley Challenge are available at the event websites. You can ride the course any time and see if it suits your abilities. Both these events cater to a wide range of abilities, so you do not have to be a ‘racer’ to participate and have fun. The Woolastook 5 is a timed event (5 hours) so you only ride as far as your ability and fitness will take you.
Another way to tell is to ride with someone who has participated in an event, and they can tell you if you are ready – so join RVC and meet some other cyclists!
