What we're about
WELCOME! The Claremont Senior Bicycle Group (CSBG) is a fun, friendly, recreational bicycle club of "senior" riders of all skill levels. We have a busy calendar with a variety of local and regional rides to challenge and interest all members.
The CSBG Meetup group is restricted to members of the CSBG. Membership in the CSBG requires a City of Claremont LIABILITY WAIVER (http://files.meetup.com/18444637/2016waiver.pdf) delivered to the Claremont Joslyn Center. Please visit http://claremontseniorbikegroup.org for instructions to join the CSBG. We have Local Weekly Rides (http://www.meetup.com/ClaremontSeniorBicycleGroup/pages/Local_Weekly_Rides/) most days of the week, and a busy calendar of special events (visible to members only).
Our cumulative annual mileage is over 100,000 miles per year, but the numbers also don’t tell the whole story about the CSBG. They don’t describe the friendships and magic that happen at our events. We are a very special group. We're the answer to the Baby Boomers who are pulling down their old bikes from the garage rafters and wondering if their riding days are over. We have developed into an ever-growing support system of genuine friendships. For some of us, the CSBG is like a second family. All of that magically takes place during rides and fellowship at favorite food stops.
MISSION: We provide an environment where folks can participate and grow in bicycling in a safe, friendly setting. We are not a racing club, but we do enjoy and encourage recreational bicycle riding at all skill levels.
MEMBERS: All adult ages and skill levels are welcome. We have about 60 active riders, and more who ride on occasion or intend to start soon. Our group continues to grow every year. We currently have more than 100 members.
Membership is free since we are sponsored by the Claremont Senior Program. The median age of our frequent riders is about 65, several of our riders are in their 40s and 50s, and some of our most active riders are in their 80s. Nearly half of our riders are women.
MEETINGS:3rd Monday of each month (except December) @ 4:00 PM at Joslyn Senior Center in Claremont (660 N. Mountain Ave., nearest cross street Harrison Ave.)
Come join the fun! We look forward to riding with you.
