What we're about

Cycle Fitters Road and Mountain Biking Group

Welcome to the Cycle Fitters Road and Mountain Bike Meetup. We are a member-financed group of enthusiastic cyclists riding road, cyclocross, gravel, fixed gear, mountain, and most all other types of bicycles in the Lehigh Valley area of Pennsylvania, including Northwest New Jersey. Being member-financed, donations are welcomed.

We ride for fun, fitness, and camaraderie. We ride roads, trails, bike paths, gravel roads, and tow paths. We have day and night rides. We have overnight and multi-day bike packing rides. We ride year round - we don’t stop because the weather gets cold.

We meet at the noted locations. Most of our rides are of the no-drop variety, but the more spirited rides may elect not to wait for stragglers. The ride leaders will post what type of ride and expected pace in the Meetup.

***HELMETS ARE REQUIRED FOR ALL RIDES!***

***No helmet, no ride, no exceptions.***

***Note that cycling can be dangerous. You ride at your own risk.***

Saturday Gravel Ride

Jacksonville Park

This ride will be on the D&L so you will need a bike capable of riding gravel (cross bike, 29er mtb or gravel bike). The length of the ride will be determined by the group or suggestion. Preparedness is important on these rides. So have water, food, tubes, pump and other tools to handle small repairs. Also make sure your bike is in good mechanical condition. It's a good idea to have an exit strategy on this ride in case a major problem occurs. So make sure you have someone who can pick you up if the need arises. Remember you must wear a helmet and you are responsible for you on this ride. We'll head down the Nor-Bath trail to Northampton and then head up towards Slatington and beyond. There will be stops along the way for bathroom breaks and food.

Over the winter months this ride has the right to change to shorter rides and will be doing the old bike path loop more often which is all pavement. Winter conditions may cause slipping and shrinkage. As always, there will be Jew Brew and a bottle share afterwards at the Pizza shop. Bring your favorite beer and enjoy post ride stories and other random banter!!
