Our Riding Route Characteristics 

As a service to its members, Chilkoot Velo has created multiple maps of "Suggested Rides" that we hope may become known to at least our regulars, having some of the following benefits:

Distance

Our routes are various lengths.
- Short Rides (10-25 miles)
- Medium Rides (25-50 miles)
- Long Rides (50-75 miles)
- Century Rides (100+ miles)

Speed

Our riders/rides average from 10 mph to 20 mph, with 15-18 mph typically the norm. Slower and faster riders often head out in the same direction, typically for a tail-wind return, on the same day for possible fall-back strategy for anyone with mechanical issues.

Availability

Ride routes and maps are available to CVCC members and can be accessed and downloaded to personal map devices in the forum area of the website.

 

Example Ride Route

Below is an example of one of our Tuesday Night ride routes. This route is approximately 33 miles. By using Ride With GPS, we are able to create routes that you can send to your personal iPhone, Android, Garmin Edge, or another device. They also provide options to print a PDF of the route.
