BEST OC CYCLING GROUP Pages



The Best OC Cycling Group was formed by people who enjoy riding bicycles for pleasure. It is NOT competition oriented, nor are our rides geared for "training" purposes. We like to get together on weekend mornings, ride around various locations in the greater OC area, and usually get together for lunch afterward. Our group is interesting because members like to ride a wide variety of vehicles. In our group you will find road bikes, mountain bikes, hybrids, comfort bikes, tandems, recumbent bikes and trikes and an occasional beach cruiser -- anything as long as it has wheels that require human power turning some pedals (note: because of distances and hills, we don't recommend beach cruisers, but if you are up to it, come on along). We ride mostly on paved bike trails and try to keep time on the streets to a minimum.

Many of our members also belong to other cycling groups on MeetUp that are geared more towards their interests, be it off road trail riding, long distance road work, or even touring. There is something for everybody on MeetUp, and our group is for those who like to meet new people and enjoy casual bicycle riding. Our rides are usually 20-30 miles and often on an "out and back" route that allows individuals to as far as they'd like. On some rides we incorporate two routes into one, a longer and shorter route that starts and ends at the same place, so there is something for everybody.

We don't ride as a single pack, but in smaller groups at their own pace, and we regroup several times along the way. The idea is to have a good time and get some exercise while enjoying each others company. Each rider is responsible for knowing the route and finding their own way should they become separated from others. Our start times adjust with the seasons, starting as early as 8 AM on very hot days, and as late as 10 AM when it's cooler, but whatever time is posted is the time we hit the trail, so be there earlier!

We have only two requirements: that you maintain a recent photograph of yourself as your profile picture -- one in which you are clearly identifiable -- and that you visit the site at least monthly. Failure to do either will result in your removal from the active roster.

So now that you found us, feel free to come out for a "test ride" with us and see if we're a good fit for you. If we are, please join us and get e-mail notifications of all our rides.

If you have other questions, please check out our FAQ page... or contact us!
