Velvet Ice Cream Ride and Picnic

July 19, 2020

The Velvet Ice Cream Ride is a Pelotonia Fundraiser by teamCOPC that takes place on Sunday, July 19, 2020.  the Velvet Ride WILL HAPPEN this year, but it will necessarily look a little different.

We will have a lightly supported ride on July 19, 2020, though you may ride the routes at any time. There will be four shorter route options, one mid-length route with a little challenge, and a tougher long route to Velvet and back.  All routes start at Hannah Park. Lunch will not be provided at Velvet this year, but food may be available for purchase as restrictions lift. Please check their website (

If you plan to participate on July 19th or ride the routes another time on your own, please register. We can keep you in the loop regarding any route changes, and we may hope to have a little something to offer you from Velvet. 

There will be no picnic this year for public health reasons, however, we are hoping to have some food trucks nearby, and the Velvet Ice Cream cart will be at Hannah Park on Sunday, July 19 from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m.  Whether you ride on the 19th or on another day, please stop by that day for a treat!
This year's event is donation-only (typically, it would be $60).  Donations will be accepted online at the link below: You may also donate at Hannah Park on July 19.

Please ride in small groups of 10 or less and respect all social distancing guidelines whenever stopping. Consider wearing a mask if entering any buildings along the way. 

Routes, recommended start times and other details will be sent to registrants. 

Back by popular demand, we also have Velvet Ice Cream Ride Cycling Jerseys for $75. There are women's and men's club fit sizes. These jerseys are available for online order or at the ride itself. ORDER HERE
