Welcome to the Southwest Bicycles Cycling Club
We are a club for cyclists who enjoy casual, recreational, no-drop rides. SWBCC members cycle for fun, fitness and for a cause. We always welcome new riders and invite you to jump on board for the ride! Please read our cycling documents in our document library to learn more about safe cycling and cycling in a group.
The Southwest Bicycles Cycling Club is a great way to meet other riders with similar interests. Our no-drop rides are designed to promote a love for casual, recreational cycling with routes designed from novice to experienced. We offer a variety of rides to accommodate most all cycling abilities. Please visit the SWBCC Ride Calendar (link below) to view upcoming rides.
Because we offer a variety of rides, we encourage you to select the ride(s) that best match your cycling skills, speed and distances.
Participants may use road bikes, hybrid, commuter, or mountain bikes, and Class 1 and Class 3 e-bikes (pedal assist)
Class 2 E-BIKES ARE PROHIBITED ON SWBCC CLUB RIDES.
Tri bike use is strongly discouraged in group rides.
Fixie bike use is strongly discouraged in group rides.
Class 1: eBikes that are pedal-assist only, with no throttle, and have a maximum assisted speed of 20 mph.
Class 2: eBikes that also have a maximum speed of 20 mph, but are throttle-assisted.
Class 3: eBikes that are pedal-assist only, with no throttle, and a maximum assisted speed of 28 mph
All SWBCC rides are led by SWBCC certified ride leaders. Our ride leaders plan routes that utilize public roads and paths. Participants on our rides are expected and encouraged, to adhere to all pertinent traffic rules on the ride. Our goal is to promote the love of casual cycling in a supportive, group environment while emphasizing rider safety and abidance to pertinent traffic laws on our no-drop rides.
Because we utilize public roads and paths, participants may encounter previously unknown hazards or debris. As such, every participant accepts full responsibility for their own bicycle handling and safe passage when encountering unanticipated hazards or debris. We encourage our members to participate in one or more charity rides throughout the year.
