What we're about
The BOBie (Bah-bee) Cycling Club is a multi-level, recreational road cycling club based in Chino/Chino Hills (Southern California) since January 2011. Our no-drop rides, strong leadership, and welcoming spirit has helped us to grow into one of Inland Empire’s favorite cycling clubs.
We have many enthusiastic Ride Leaders offering weekday/night and weekend rides at many skill levels throughout the Inland Empire, including the foothills of San Gabriel Mountains, to the coastal communities between San Diego to Santa Barbara.
WHO WE ARE NOT:
We are NOT a club that rides as one huge peleton NOR are we a racing club. Instead, our unique multi-level rides keep our attendance at a manageable 8-25. Exceptions: Our year-round Tues/Thur night training rides – however the night rides do still roll out at ride levels 3-4-5.
