2023 VVCC Accomplishments

18 Dec 2023 9:38 AM | Tracy Randall (Administrator)

About a year ago we focused our efforts on membership growth for a couple reasons: 1) to build a stronger & bigger local cycling community thus 2) creating more capacity to support all the great work the club does.

So, how have we done?

  • Added 91 members over the past year, bringing the membership to 256
  • Hosted 9 events attended by over 500 people
  • Generated over 8,000 media impressions per month for the VVCC
  • Added 2 Board members:
    • Tim Miller: leading our Gravel push
    • Josh Peterson: teamed up with Lars on the MTB Committee
  • Grown all our Committees:
    • Road, Media/Membership, Events - all have 5-7 members actively involved

With this increased capacity, we’ve accomplished quite a bit:

  • Bike Patrol: Funded/kicked off “Chime in Bell” program distributing 20k bells in the Verde Valley
  • MTB Committee
    • Worked with Red Rock Trail Crew to outline the volunteer Trail work plans
    • Drawing out large numbers of volunteers to Trail work days
    • Rolling out Caltopo to assist in identifying trail maintenance needs
    • New trails in progress: Circle Trail, Red Rock Trails Access Plan and some new things at Mingus all active
  • Road Committee:
    • Got Yavapai Co. to add a paved shoulder and rumble strips along parts of Cornville road
    • Got Hwy 89A between Cottonwood and Sedona swept
    • Partnered with the BAC Committee to add bike lanes & wider shoulders along 89A in parts of Cottonwood and Clarkdale

The VVCC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit founded in 2003 (incorporated in March 2004) to promote road and mountain bike advocacy in, and around, the Verde Valley of Northern Arizona.
