Why Join A Cycling Club?

When you hear about cycling clubs, you may envision a gang of super competitive cyclists training for their next big race. In reality, there are all types of cycling clubs to fit the desires of any cyclist. Whether you want to train with experienced riders or find a group of people who enjoy exploring the city on a hybrid road bike, joining a cycling club can be a great way to get good use out of your new bike.

Make Friends

Joining a cycling group is a great way to meet new people. The best part is, these people all share a common joy of cycling. The first step to finding the right club, as there are many to choose from, is to think about the types of rides you are interested in. Some clubs are Sunday fun rides while others are focused on training by riding through obstacles and hilly terrain. Find a group of people who are looking to enjoy the same type of ride as you are, whether on a beach cruiser or hybrid road bike.

Find a New Route

If you are an avid cyclist, you might be growing tired of taking the same routes. Once you join a club, you can count on exploring new territory with your group. The leaders of the rides will make sure to keep the group on a safe path, but they will also know which paths may be less well known and therefore less crowded. Your group will find new journeys to take on together while you discover a few new spots in your city. Every club ride is an opportunity to explore a new adventure on your hybrid road bike.


If you are planning on taking cycling to the next level and going competitive, a cycling club can be a great way to train. There are many clubs out there that are focused on training for races and will have group rides that include seasoned cyclists who are willing to provide guidance and tips along the way. The rides will take place on various terrain and can include fun obstacles and challenges. Improve your skills, your speed and get ready for your next race.

What Types of Bikes to Ride

If you are joining a group that enjoys exploring the city, check out our comfort cruiser bicycles like our InTheBarrel. This comfortable bike is designed for a smooth ride wherever your group goes.

If you plan to join a Sunday fun ride type of group, you should take a look at our beach bikes with gears. A fun beach cruiser like our Teal is the perfect companion. No doubt all of your club mates will be envious of your cool ride.
