We are still building the teams for the Tour De SYV. We need a few more riders of all abilities to round out the teams. If you haven’t participated in this before come out and give it a try. The teams are balanced so all participants efforts  contribute to your team’s overall success. Please email me if you can ride

We will send out the teams and routes next week. The SVCC board is meeting Monday to finalize all of the segments we are going to use.

Dates: 7/1-7/31. It will start on a Monday and end of a Wednesday to give all riders as many opportunities to ride the segments as they want. 

Club BBQ We will also have an all club BBQ on Saturday Aug 3rd from 1p-5p at Hans Christian Andersen Park  to hand out prizes and see friends. All food and beverages will be provided by the club. Meat and Vegetarian options will be offered. Famous Basque climbers Marcos Alvarez and Miguel Hector will be cooking.

The Rules:

  • Complete all 5 segments at least once, in any order, any time in July  (they have to be on Strava) 
  • 2 Individual Segments and 3 group segments you can ride with others
  • The “no drafting” rule still applies for the Prologue and other individual segments.  These are true TTs.
  • Each rider’s time will be totaled for all 5 stages (using their fastest time for each Strava segment during the month of July).  The winning team will have the lowest combined time for all team members
  • If a rider doesn’t complete a segment, they will be assigned a TBD time penalty which will be factored into the total team time (as an example, the time penalty for skipping the Prologue might be 15 minutes)
  • Be safe, have fun, and cheer on your fellow riders!
  • Must use Strava for your time to count
