What we're about

Bicycle rides for all skill levels since 2012.

Founded by Al & JoAnn WVCBR was a group designed for the everyday rider. It allowed folks from all ability levels to come together and ride without egos.

Phil Davis was given the stewardship of the group after Al and Jo retired to the Pacific Northeast; Naomi joined Phil in co-hosting the group after being a member for almost a decade.

Event activity level, route distance, ride surface and speed vary, based on group preference. The focus of this group is to promote a healthy lifestyle and year-round activity in a relaxed social atmosphere.

NOBODY GETS LEFT BEHIND.  Helmets and hydration means are mandatory.

Use lights for any rides other than in bright daylight.

Thursday Night Beginners Ride

7460 W Sweetwater Ave

West Valley Casual strongly believes there is a need for beginning bicycle group riding instructions in a safe organized manner.

If you are just beginning to ride or need a refresher course, we hope you will join a very nice group of riders Thursday evenings throughout the year.

Distances will vary according to riders preferences and abilities but always less than 20 miles. Rides are paced for the beginner, this always a no drop ride.

You must have a good helmet and legal lights both front and back. No headphones. Sometimes on the paths, sometimes on the road. But never busy main roads.

A spare light is always a good idea as well as the proper equipment to repair a flat tire. Extra tubes are also a good idea.

We meet in the only parking lot at Sweetwater Park. The entrance is East of 75th Ave on Sweetwater. Looking forward to meeting you soon.
