Welcome to the Westchester Cycle Club website! We've been riding together since 1975 and are a not-for-profit organization in Westchester County, New York. Our purpose is to educate the general public about safety and the benefits of bicycle riding, to promote community awareness and enjoyment of cycling through organized bicycling events, tours, lectures, demonstrations and other bicycling activities for members as well as for the general public, and to promote bicycle use, and development of cycling facilities as a non-polluting, non-congesting, quiet means of recreation and transportation. We have been designated the top bicycling club in the country in 2011 by the League of American Bicyclists.
We're open to everyone and we'd love you to join us. A $20 annual membership provides you and your family with a variety of rides; beginner or expert, you'll find something just right. Our Orientation Ride will help you find just the right paced group for you. We offer lots of member-led rides throughout the entire county as well as Putnam and Duchess and Fairfied (CT) counties. Rides are scheduled on weekends as well as many weekdays and evenings and wind their way through some of the Lower Hudson Valley's most scenic areas. We also schedule multi paced rides once a month with food, drink and camaraderie afterward. The highlight of the year is our renowned GOLDEN APPLE TOUR - a fully supported event with routes from 25 to 100 miles. For a more complete picture of what the WCC is all about, read our More Info page.

Golden Apple - October 11
Save the date for WCC's signature event
By David Wilson - updated 7/24/15
WCC is gearing up for the 2015 Golden Apple, set for Sunday Oct. 11 in northern Westchester County. It's a day to celebrate the gorgeous fall landscape on two wheels.
Starting from Best Plumbing in Somers, we'll have rides for every level - including a 25-mile ride on relatively mellow terrain, and routes of 45, 62 (metric century) and 100 miles.
It's a supported ride, with food stops, sag support, and a team of masseuses at the finish to sooth your aching - and strengthened - muscles.
Parking is at the Goldens Bridge Metro North station in Goldens Bridge, NY and the start site is just a few minutes away by bike. So it's accessible by train from NYC, with your bike.
It's a great opportunity for you to get out on our roads, and sample the wonders of Westchester riding.
Register before July 29th and save $$$ with early bird registration!
The Golden Apple couldn't happen without a small army of volunteers! Its a fun day helping out to make sure the tour goes great. We have a wide variety of positions open.
