The VVCC has an active road riding contingent. The MEETUP LINKS on the VVCC website have rides posted. Please join your fellow riders!
The Road Riding Committee is also an advocate for road cyclists through interaction with local/state cycling organizations and local/state governments. It promotes local road riding related initiatives that support safe and accessible riding on paved roads. One significant initiative is working with Yavapai Country on the road construction currently being undertaken along Cornville Rd between Cornville and the Beaverhead Flat Rd. junction. It will have 5 foot shoulders and 12 inch rumble strips increasing cycling safety along this busy corridor. In another action, Rich Leever, a Committee Member, was successful in getting ADOT to sweep the shoulders of Hwy 89A between Cottonwood and Sedona. This responsibility had been left undone for some time. ADOT has committed to sweeping it twice a year and to evaluate the frequency of the sweep.
The Committee needs passionate road riding members to be active participants to be effective.
Tailwinds and wide shoulders for now.
