Who We Are

The Village Idiots Cycling Club was founded in 2007 by people who love to  ride, socialize, and give back to the community.   Over the years we have ridden thousands of miles, shared countless experiences and stories, and raised nearly $200,000 for charities.  We are open to community-focused people who are aged 14 or older, of all cycling abilities, and hailing from near and far.  Check out our FAQ Page for more information!

 
We cater to all types of riders, from beginners to experienced, and even those who prefer staying on paved bicycle trails.  For a description of our ride types, click here:  Ride Types


Junior Memberships Now Available

The ever popular Village Idiots Cycling Club has recently added a junior membership category for members 14-29 years of age.  This limited category has a reduced membership fee which is basically the cost of a jersey ($75).  With over 80 members, the club is now focused on growing its younger membership.  

Our Club tagline is Pedal, Play, Purpose, and we do plenty of each.   There are over 60 road/paved trail rides scheduled per year, along with many social, and community volunteer opportunities.   Junior members will have their mandatory donation to Douglas/Elbert Task Force waived, in lieu of volunteering for two community service events through the Club.   What better way to develop a lifelong passion for cycling and giving back to our community, than joining a club focused on both!

Whether you have little or lots of experience and ambition on the bike, you will learn from other Club members with many years of experience.  Junior members aged 14-17 will need to have a parent/sponsor accompany them on each ride.

One of our junior members Heather C (age 24) says, “As a younger rider, I joined the Village Idiots Cycling Club with little experience, so was nervous that the club would be too advanced.   However, this experience has been nothing but positive and I have improved so much with the help from other members."

Check out our calendar of rides and events, go to www.villageidiotscyclingclub.org.   To register, select the "Join Us" tab followed by "Sign Up!".   Complete the application process all the way through to "Submit Application" button, and click on that.  Once approved, you will receive an online invoice for $75.

Year-End Celebration Party


At the end of a successful riding season, nothing says "Idiots", like a great party!  Members gather to celebrate another successful year of "Pedal. Play. Purpose."   Members and guests share stories from the year, partake in culinary delights, and raise a glass or two the Club.

 VIC² Signature Ride

Every year, a merry group of Idiots, gather to participate in the annual VIC² Signature Ride event.  The "ride" is typically followed by a grand meal and beverages.  

 

Often, ride teams compete in "games" with a winner declared at the gathering of teams before attendees reconvene to share crazy stories.  

The games often involve capturing photos related to the challenge.  

We hope to see you out there this year!

VIC² Rock the E-Rock

 
With our home 'hood being in Castle Rock, VIC² members often gather to represent the club at the annual Elephant Rock Cycling Festival.  Members choose their own route to conquer with past year distances of 40, 62, and 102 miles.
With an early June date, the weather is usually spectacular and provides an early season goal to train for during those winter months.  The views of the snow-capped back range are gorgeous and the ride well-supported.  
 
As is usually the case, VIC² jerseys receive special attention and many compliments.

VIC² Team Volunteer Days @ DETF

VIC² members go over and above to give back to our community.   As a proud supporter of the Douglas/Elbert Task Force (website) which supports those in financial distress.  

In the past we have taken on projects at the DETF including landscaping and painting.   We also volunteer in the food bank twice a year in support of Colorado Shares 9Cares days where the community at large donates food and basic needs goods at designated drop off points. The food is then brought to the DETF facility for sorting.

VIC² has also provided a marshaling team for the Turkey Rock Trot, which is the largest fundraiser for DETF.

The Village Idiots Adopt-A-Road!

  
VIC² owns the road!  Well, technically we own the responsibility for one of the many great stretches we have available to us for riding.  

We are fortunate to have such great riding routes in our area, and want to do our part to keep them beautiful!
 
Our adopted "baby" is the one mile stretch of South Havana between Castle Pines Parkway north to Oak Hill Lane (the I-25  underpass road) across from the Surrey Ridge dog park. 
 
We hold a couple of clean up days per year, so come on out and pitch in...members and non-members are welcome to come out and clean up!
