What we're about

Please note: There is now a $5 annual fee to belong to this group. We have done this to cover the costs of managing the meetup.com website. Any balance left over this year will be donated to our former leader, Michael Esposito's favorite charities, St. Jude's Children's Hospital and Calvary Hospital in the Bronx.

Welcome to one of the most active cycling fun groups in all of Westchester and Putnam County. We are a social group of cyclists who enjoy the company of others riding together along the many miles of Paved trails available in Westchester and Putnam and Dutchess County and beyond.

We offer rides at all levels, from the beginner’s level to the advanced + level.

We will have bike tours every now and then on a weekend throughout the season.

We will also post after work rides: (we called it ride and dine rides) in the summer.

With weather permitting we post an average of two to three events a week including weekends.

The group will have a beginning of the season get together and an end of the season get together.

We, each, individually challenge ourselves to keep a competitive pace, recognizing a diversity of limits, and still take the time to stop and smell the roses. Most all events allow for time to socialize, grab a bite to eat, and encourage the bond that comes with riding together.

For great inspiration and a taste of how much we love cycling and want you to love it too, see this amazing introduction by Tom: https://www.meetup.com/Westchester-Social-Cycling/messages/boards/thread/26306702

Now for the serious stuff, which has sadly gotten more serious than ever this year.

LIABILITY WAIVER: We are a group of social cyclists and not a professional organization. All sports and physical activities, especially bicycling, have their own inherent risks, and can result in medical injury, infection, even death, and EVERYONE RIDES AT THEIR OWN RISK. You are responsible for yourself and your assessing your own ability, your own equipment, for your safety and that of your guests. YOUR RSVP INDICATES THAT YOU AGREE TO THESE TERMS AND DO NOT HOLD THE ORGANIZER, ASSISTANTS, EVENT HOSTS, OR ANY OTHER MEMBER LIABLE FOR ANY ACCIDENT OR ILLNESS THAT MAY RESULT.

For the duration of the 2021 season, you will be required to wear a cloth mask when the group is huddled, at a stop, and to maintain safe "social distancing" of 6 feet or more away from each other where possible on all Westchester Social Cyclists rides. YOUR RSVP INDICATES THAT, IN ADDITION TO THE WAIVER MENTIONED IN THE ABOVE PARAGRAPH, YOU AGREE TO WEAR A MASK, OBSERVE SOCIAL DISTANCING AND THAT TO THE BEST OF YOUR KNOWLEDGE YOU DO NOT HAVE COVID-19 AND HAVE NOT BEEN IN DIRECT CONTACT WITH ANYONE THAT HAS COVID-19 DURING THE PAST 14 DAYS
