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.***

Mixed Terrain Ride

Nicolossi's Pizza Shop

This will be a weekly ride to go along with Salsa's Adventure By Bike concept. We believe a sense of adventure makes life better. The bicycle can be so much more than just a bike; it's a path to new places, new people, and amazing experiences. Mixed terrain bicycle riding combines bicycle travel with a mountaineering flair. Dirt trails, gravel and paved roads are combined as needed for an efficient route through sometimes difficult terrain. Natural obstacles are often not avoided, instead they are incorporated into the ride which may require some hike a bike sections. For mixed terrain riding the goal is finding efficient travel over every surface traveled. Sometimes this means combining hiking or climbing with biking. Mixed terrain riding is best done on an off-road adventure bike like Salsa's Fargo. Although any mountain bike (preferably with 29 inch tires due to some long stretches of pavement) or cyclocross bicycle will work fine. Due to time constraints, we ask that you be able to ride at a 13-15 mph pace on the road before taking on this type of ride. As a reminder: You must wear a helmet. You are responsible for you and your safety on this ride. Bring plenty to drink,some snacks, tools and supplies to at least repair a flat and a cell phone would be advisable. No one gets dropped. Headlights and steady red tail lights are required.

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.
