We encourage everyone who rides in our community to join the Janesville Velo Club and give local bicycling advocacy a louder voice.

The Slow Roll Ride

The Janesville Velo Club sponsors the local Slow Roll rides as part of the National Slow Bike Movement. The rides are free, start in Janesville and are a social ride at a leisurely pace.

The rides are based on the Go Slow model or sometimes referred to as Slow Bike. Originating in Copenhagen, the Slow Roll is based on the idea of riding casually to take the opportunity to enjoy the experience and smell the flowers. Traveling at a pace of no more than 8 miles per hour and riding for about 60 - 90 minutes, the rides are designed for families, new riders, older riders, and anyone who enjoys a friendly, unpretentious, social ride.
