8th Annual Richard’s Ride Powered by VBT

May 20, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

8th Annual Richard’s Ride Powered by VBT at Cochran’s Ski Area, Richmond.   We are lining up a perfect day for you on Saturday, May 20.  We have a wide menu of ride choices from 5 miles to 15, to 30, and 70 miles on the road, 40 to 50 miles on mostly gravel, a river trail ride for kids, and technical MTB routes on Cochran’s trails.  Rides start at different times with the goal of rides being completed with plenty of time for refueling and relaxing.  Be sure to check the start time for your ride and arrive early to park in the upper or lower lots of Cochran’s and then check in at the registration desk in the Base Lodge.  Pre-ride pancakes and maple syrup served up by Little Bellas (MTB cycling camps for young girls).  Velo Village!

The first 180 registered riders will receive our RTF custom-designed BIVO Bottle (we are at 179 riders today!).  We have a few (12!) remaining bottles at this moment so don’t miss out on the anti-plastic movement and better tasting drinks while riding.

Riders can register right here: Richard’s Ride 2023 Powered by VBT Bicycling Vacations Online Registration (  There is no registration charge for children ages 1-16 (for Richard’s 5, 15, 30, or MTB) however, parents should register their child.  Family participation is encouraged.  Also for kids, Cochran Road will be closed to through traffic during the 5 mile road and trail rides with a “Celebration Station” at the turnaround near Dugway Road.  Also post-ride face painting, a great meal, brews (for adults), ice cream, ambience, camaraderie, and more.  Online re
