Happy First Day of Spring! It may not look much like it, but the
calendar indicates that today marks the Vernal Equinox, so that must be
the vernal truth. Depending on conditions, we will attempt to coax
Spring along with a short ride on Saturday as part of Maine Maple
Sunday. Join us on the road, or just stop in at the Sugar House and
sample some of their wares. Otherwise, Think Spring!

Welcome to POSTED ROADS, the Weblog of the Kennebec Valley Bicycle Club (KVBC).
The Kennebec Valley Bicycle Club (KVBC) sponsors recreational road rides in the Central Maine area. The KVBCwelcomes all cyclists to join in our rides along the many scenic back roads and lakes, rivers, and forests that grace our neck of the woods. Many of our rural roads are "posted" in late winter to limit access to heavy motor vehicles which damage roads during the seasonal freeze-thaw cycle. POSTED ROADSare harbingers of spring and months of fine cycling ahead. For club cycling news keep an eye on our weblog, POSTED ROADS, where we will post information on the roads we will travel on upcoming rides, as well as other features of interest to our members. We hope you will join us onPOSTED ROADS!
