What we're about

Are you willing to make a pre-paid commitment to bike in a safe, educational, supervised group? Do you want to start biking in the Henderson area and aren't sure how to start? Have you tried the "road bike required" groups, but that's not for you?

I'm Debra Stefan, LCI-League Cycling Instructor and 2020 Educator of the Year with the League of American Bicyclists leading frequent bike rides on designated bike trails and access roads to get to them. Learn the Smart Cycling "need-to-know" best biking practices, reasons to ride, and to ride more often. See my Smart Cycling video series to get to know me. My rides require a pre-paid event fee to reserve limited space for a small group training experience. Ride with me under the bike league's umbrella policy protecting all cyclists along for the ride.

If you are interested in learning the trail system and becoming knowledgeable on Smart Cycling, I would love to work with you and see you to your goals. My fully insured, instructional rides require a $24 pre-paid event fee (per ride) to reserve limited space for a small group experience. It is more a small group personal training bike instruction. Please read my full description and you will find that we do not require road bikes, and are not about racing or social. Let me know if this works for you.

Saturday Morning Henderson Biking Routes

901 Olivia Pkwy

$24.00

I'm Debra Stefan, LCI-League Cycling Instructor with the League of American Bicyclists and Henderson Trail Watch ambassador. Learn the Smart Cycling "need-to-know" best biking practices, reasons to bike, and to bike more often. You are in good hands when you ride with the League. Ride with me under the Bike League's umbrella policy protecting all cyclists on the ride. See my Smart Cycling video series to get to know me. TinyURL.com/Smart-Cycling1

As your ride leader, I will make no assumptions as to your knowledge of Smart Cycling practices. You will be assessed and taught as you ride. That's right. Ride and learn. Please be coachable.

I have over 40 years professional fitness experience and my biking started even earlier. Unlike other ride groups, road bikes are not required. Ride what you have. If you don’t have a bike yet, let me know ahead of time because you may borrow one of mine until you decide what to get. I have my own fleet of Giant 26” hardtail mountain bikes sizes small to extra-large. This is my bike of choice for greater fitness and safe traction. Most all of our routes will be on pavement with dedicated bike paths. However, there will be some vehicular roadways traveled to access the Henderson trail system. Nevada has clearly defined bicycle laws and the Bike League shares Smart Cycling safe traffic skills. You will become well-versed in these laws and guidelines when riding with me. As your LCI, League Cycling Instructor, I will clear up all the gray area of uncertainty about urban cycling.

Our insurance policy requires my participants to wear a helmet at all times. Risks will be discussed and minimized by skill and awareness. Many experienced cyclists don’t realize what they are doing wrong. Some of the most experienced riders bike with inefficient and unsafe habits. Unfortunately, they set the wrong example for newcomers. We are in a League of our own with Smart Cycling and set the example for best biking practices.
Chimera Bike Club is our registered club name with the League of American Bicyclists and insured by American Specialty. You are covered when you sign our disclaimer and ride with us. All rides require RSVP and payment no later than 12 hours before the ride event. Upon receipt, you will receive your details. Please review Debra’s Smart Cycling Pre-Ride Checklist video before you ride. https://youtu.be/ZTbYBfFBero

Which number best describes you?
1. Never learned how to ride yet
2. Haven't ridden in years
3. Don’t own a bike yet, can ride
4. Own a bike, want to ride more
5. Want to learn the trail system
6. Qualifying for bike league instructor

Thanks for your interest. Make a commitment by RSVP to receive your ride waiver and pre-ride checklist. Feel free to chat and share your biking goals with me. Please don't be a road bike spandex snob. If you are, I welcome a challenge on one of my 26" MTBs to see what you've been missing. It will humble you and get you to your fitness goals faster and farther.
