Local Rides & Events

Roanoke has a wealth of bike riding opportunities. These rides are "local favorites" shared by area cyclists for folks to discover, explore, and enjoy! Each ride has a map, stats, a brief description, and points of interest so you know exactly what kind of fun you’re getting into. We also have regular group rides and bike related events to keep riding run all year round.


We’re always finding ways to stoke up the bicycle community. Check here regularly for upcoming bicycle related events.

Women's Night!
Tire Changing Master Class

Thursday November 4th
6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Join us for hands-on experience and instruction on how to change a flat tire in our Tire Changing Master Class. Bring your bike, and our staff will help you practice fixing a flat on your own bike or help you learn how to set up tubeless on your own bike. If you are not ready to jump in and get your hands dirty, you are welcome to come and watch. 

Please RSVP so we can make sure we have enough staff to provide a personal experience. Walk-ins are always welcome as well.
