What we’re about
Welcome to the Lehigh Wheelmen Association's Meetup page. Here we list our cycling events, and some non-cycling fun as well. Our recreational, social rides are available at various paces and will take you mostly around the counties of Lehigh and Berks. We are blessed to experience the beauty that makes up this part of Pennsylvania.
While we are happy to see so many take an interest in our Ride Calendar, following here does not grant LWA membership. We would be thrilled to have you all become dues paying LWA members! Here are some benefits:
* We offer a full schedule of road and off-road rides for all levels.
* Bike shop discounts
* Insurance coverage for if involved in a LWA ride incident
* Monthly Grill 'n' Chill and annual Picnic
* Annual Holiday Party
* Overnight/weekend cycling trips
* Also, LWA is host to the now-famous Donut Derby!
