Field of Smiths

We are coming up on the end of September and only now are we getting the dog days of August. Too early to say if we will have an extended season of late Fall riding weather, but we had a great ride last Sunday in Wayne thanks to Fritz and his gang. Slightly cooler temperatures are predicted for this Saturday's ride in Smithfield. Let's hope for more great Fall riding ahead!

Kennebec Valley Bicycle Club rides are open to members and to the cycling public. Helmets are required of all riders at KVBC events. It is also recommended that you bring with you on KVBC rides: a map of the area in case you stray off route; tools for simple roadside repairs, especially a tire pump, spare tube and/or patch kit; water bottles or hydration systems; personal ID and a small first aid kit; and money for purchasing snacks & drinks en-route. In case of severe weather, scheduled rides may be postponed or designated as "show & go" rides at the discretion of the ride leader. We welcome suggestions for improving our rides and encourage active participation of all members. For more information, contact Jim Merrick at 293-3784 or, and check out the KVBC blog at
