Janesville Velo Club and Beloit Spinners use the summer solstice each year as a way to meet in the middle between our cities, ride our bikes and have some fun! Though the actual summer solstice occurs on June 21, we are aligning busy schedules and making this happen a week later on June 28. We will meet in Afton at the former Bass Creek Cafe and launch a ride at 6:00 pm from that location. Two routes planned are 23 and 30 miles for the touring and race groups, respectively.

After the ride we will partake in a meal prepared by Skip Hoffman (former owner of Skip’s Friendly Village) and Wendy (former proprietor of Bass Creek Cafe). The cost to participate is $12 and includes: pulled pork sandwich, potato salad, no-fart beans, 1 bag of chips, water or pop, 1 cookie. Bring your own beverage if you’d like.

A successful RSVP (including food) requires payment / donation of $12 per person. Do so through JVC’s PayPal account (paypal@veloclub.org), using this link: https://veloclub.org/about-jvc/donate/ A check can also be mailed to: Janesville Velo Club, P.O. Box 1601, Janesville, WI 53547

A traveling trophy will go to the group with the most attendees. It’s been several years since JVC’s name has been on this trophy, so lets get some Janesville folks riding for the solstice and bring this trophy back home!

The event will occur rain or shine. If weather does not cooperate to ride, we will gather inside the Bass Creek Cafe for food and camaraderie at 6:00 pm.
