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 of all cycling abilities, hailing from near and far.

We offer a variety of rides from open road to gravel and paved bike paths.  For a description of our ride types, click here:  Ride Types. During the 2022 season, we accomplished over 90 organized rides and collectively rode over 13,000 miles. We also supported the community in a variety of ways:

  • Donated over $3,760 to the Douglas County Help and Hope Center, a non-profit organization that provides support for local residents facing financial difficulties.
  • We are the proud “owners” of a stretch of South Havana Street near Castle Rock, and conducted clean-up days in the spring and fall as part of the Douglas County Adopt-A-Road program.
  • Sponsored a used bike drives for HopeCycle, a local non-profit that repairs and repurposes used bicycles, turning them into “good as new” bikes for needy children. Our drives have collected as many as 80 used bicycles annually.

10-20 enthusiastic volunteers typically participate in each event.
