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.
If you're a new member, make yourself welcome by taking a peek at the sage advice of our new members committee. You can find lots of information on our Link-o-Rama page or join an informal chat group on Yahoo. Please treat yourself to one of our immediate benefits: member discounts at a many Westchester bike shops!
