Founded in 1978, NVP is a club of recreational, fitness and touring riders located in the Nashoba Valley area of eastern Massachusetts. We are primarily a road club, but also offer off road rides and weekend trips. We have rides for all abilities, from 10 miles to 100 miles. In the off season, our members offer occasional walks, hikes, cross-country skiing and Zwift Keep Together Meetup events. Nashoba Valley Pedalers is a member of MassBike and affiliated with The League of American Bicyclists
Our rides are mostly held in the Western suburbs, but are occasionally held in or closer to Boston, Southern New Hampshire, and Central or Western Massachusetts. During the COVID pandemic, only paid members who have signed our 2021 waiver can ride with the club.
Every Summer (pandemic-permitting)the club hosts a fully supported century through our area with 25, 50, 75, and of course 100 mile routes. We hope to run the 2022 Century Saturday, August 27. Keep an eye out for updates.
NVP promotes bicycling as a safe mode of transportation and recreation. We support activities which improve safety and facilities for all types of recreational, sport and commuting use of bicycles.
There's more to the club than just rides. Pending NVP Board approval, we expect to resume our social activities:
Club members schedule social activities, including an annual spring banquet in May, an annual holiday potluck in December, and occasional dining clubs.
NVP's Dining Club is a great way to meet fellow riders for a non-cycling social event. Simply pick a restaurant of your choice and a date, and post it on the club calendar as a social event. Ask people who are coming to RSVP to you 3-5 days beforehand so that you can make a reservation. Make sure to include your email address or telephone number in the event listing and be sure to let folks know that non-cycling family and friends are more than welcome. You can have an email sent to members advertising the night out by contacting NVP's Party Planner, at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you're more into having fun than making the arrangements, let Don Kennedy know what you'd like to do and he’ll help set up the evening. Dining Clubs have historically been held on Friday evenings, but the decision is up to you. Contact email@example.com with any questions.
