The route will be announced at the start and vary depending on the weather forecast. We are a no drop group, but riders should respect the intended pace of the ride.

Wacky Wednesday (new in 2019) A ride that is geared for the working woman and/or mom that needs a ride, but also had to get back home or to work by 8AM. We meet on Wednesday morning from June to August. We ride a 14-16 mile pace and ride for no more than 2 hours. The route may repeat for several weeks depending on participants in attendance. We are a no drop group, but riders should respect the intended pace of the ride and be familiar with riding as a group. This road ride leaves from Lion’s Beach at 5:30 AM on Wednesday morning.
Women’s Mountain Bike Off-Road
This is a ladies-only off-road mountain bike ride for less aggressive female riders with an emphasis on helping newer riders to become more confident while also having fun on the dirt. Although intended for entry-level (not advanced) riders, the expectation is that participants will have at least done some riding off-road prior to attending. Ride time is typically around 60-90 minutes and followed by a “reward” (i.e. margaritas @ El Jardin!). The ride leaves from the pool parking lot in Rockport Park on Janesville’s west side at 6:00pm Wednesday. This ride does not meet every week. Join the JVC and get on the email list to get ride announcements.
