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 over 20 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 pelaton NOR are we a racing club. Instead, our unique multi-level rides keep our attendance at a manageable 8-25. Exceptions: Our annual picnic slow ride through town held in October, and our Tues/Thur night training rides – however the night rides do still roll out at ride levels.
MEETUP CLUB MEMBERSHIP:
Our general membership is FREE through our Meetup Site here. Club t-shirts, socks, and hats are available for purchase to our general membership at our website store here: www.bobie.org. You must "Join Us" here as a BOBie member to continue riding with our club after your first ride as a guest. Rider Insurance is not available at this basic membership level.
PREMIUM CLUB MEMBERSHIP PROGRAM:
We offer a voluntary annual membership for a small cost which is packed with perks and benefits including special purchasing programs, rider insurance, raffle programs, a premium club-level ride routing site, complimentary catered lunch at our annual club picnic, and the ability to purchase our club jersey or entire kit.
