What we're about

The Lancaster Bicycle Club is a road-based recreational club for cyclists of all levels.

The Club carefully plans rides and related events such as bike-safety courses that result in self-confidence, physical fitness, and improved riding skills for cyclists. The Club also hosts numerous social events and supports bicycle-related initiatives through its grant program. The Club has awarded over $430,000 in grants since 1999.

Whether you are an experienced rider or new to bike riding, you can find a variety of suitable rides here on Lancaster Bicycle Club’s Meetup site. Rides are held year round.

Your Meetup membership does not mean you are a Lancaster Bicycle Club member. To eliminate the need for a paper waiver at the ride start, we require club membership in addition to Meetup. You can join today at lancasterbikeclub.net. (https://lancasterbikeclub.net)

For proper verification of membership we do not allow anonymous Meetup IDs. Please sign up with at least a first initial and last name.

Thank You
