What we're about

https://secure.meetupstatic.com/photos/event/9/c/9/e/600_446080094.jpeg

WELCOME!

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.

GOOD TO KNOW:
As with all BOBie rides are always a "NO DROP" ride. Safety and riding in groups will be our main goal to give us greater visibility when in traffic. Helmets are mandatory on all BOBIE rides. Bring hydration, spare tube, nutrition and appropriate clothing to be comfortable during the entire ride. (The weather can and will change during the ride).

***************** IMPORTANT ********************
BE PREPARED!
* All Riders MUST bring their own supplies for flat tire repair.
* Bring Cash or a Credit Card to pay for any unexpected expenses such as bike repairs or transportation home is highly recommended. By not having any way to cover unplanned expenses when something goes wrong YOU shift that financial burden to those who are riding with you or create a situation where you are left stranded, which can lead to awkward feelings.

* Helmets are mandatory on all BOBIE rides.
* Bring hydration, spare tube, nutrition and appropriate clothing to be comfortable during the entire ride. (The weather can and will change during the ride).
