Group Rides

You don’t need a fancy bike or special clothes to ride with us, but we do require that everyone wear a helmet and strongly encourage you to bring at least one water bottle.

At least one club member will be present at each ride to lead the group. For the most timely updates, including last-minute weather cancellations, please see the Athens Bicycle Club’s Facebook group, where rides will be usually posted as Facebook Events.
