What we're about
The Windy City Cycling Club (WCCC) is a primarily Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Allies bicycling club which encourages fellowship through recreational, road, and off-road bike rides. Throughout the year, our social events are purely fun ways to meet people and provide some ways to give back to the community. During the winter we organize outdoor and indoor recreational activities, including ice skating, wine tasting or museums. WCCC members take advantage of the many road and off-road cycling venues throughout the Chicagoland area and beyond! See descriptions of our rides and see what is scheduled in the Calendar on our website at http://www.windycitycyclingclub.com ! Come join us - we welcome everyone from the most seasoned rider to newbies.
Both members and nonmembers are welcome to join most rides. Non-members of Windy City Cycling Club will be asked to sign a waiver form at the ride.
Choose rides that are right for your ability and interests. Use the Ride descriptions, or contact the organizer if you have questions. Arrive well before the start of the ride. Rides will depart on-time.
Approved helmets are required. Earphones are not permitted. It is a good idea to carry identification.
In most cases, bikes should have a water bottle, pump and spare tube, but members will gladly pitch in if help is needed on a ride. For some urban rides, a lock and bus or cab fare will do in a pinch.
