What we're about

NOTE: First and Last name are required to join this Meetup group. This eliminates the need for passing around a paper waiver and a pen at our rides.

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 $530,000 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. 
For proper verification of membership we do not allow anonymous Meetup IDs.  Please sign up with a first and last name. 
Thank You
