Our Bikes

Our club hosts 3 volks-bike (YREs, year-round events) events.  All of these events highlight a range of unique man-made and natural attractions in the Las Vegas valley area.   Our bike events are available for online registration; this means ‘no contact’ registration and receiving directions and maps via download to your computer or phone. When you finish the event, simply return online to print out your IVV stamp(s) which you cut and paste into your book(s). You must have an account on My.AVA.org to use the Online Start Box (OSB). It is easy to create an account if you need one by following this guide.
