BIKES encourages riders of all skill levels, from beginner to advanced. Club members host free recreational weekend and weekday rides year-round with a focus on fun and friends. Rides range anywhere from 10 to 100 miles in length, with varying levels of difficulty. Upcoming rides and contact information are posted in the club's monthly newsletter, Chainwheel Chatter, and on the Rides page.
Members also organize multi-day tours. Our annual fund-raising event is the McClinchy Mile Bicycle Ride, in March.Club dues

Non-members are welcome to visit the club for a ride or a meeting. For insurance purposes non-members are invited guests the first time they participate in a scheduled club ride. If you like us enough to come on a second or subsequent ride, please join the club. Non-members are excluded from BIKES' accident and liability insurance - only one of the many benefits of membership.
