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.

Volunteers from Hope Community Services, Linking Handlebars from Rye, Miller's Bikes in Mamaroneck, Larchmont Temple and Westchester Cycle Club's Bikes4Kids recently donated 130 gently used, refurbished bicycles to children in the New Rochelle area.

Carol Troum, executive director of Hope Community Services, hosted and promoted the program. Linking Handlebars and Westchester Cycle Club's Bikes4Kids collected, fixed up and donated the bikes. Mechanics from Miller's Bikes helped refurbish and repair the bicycles and get them ready for distribution.

"Having the opportunity to link up with these great groups has enabled us to touch the lives of even more children," said Linking Handlebars' Vice President Cristiana Villani, a senior at Rye High School. Linking Handlebars has already donated over 220 bicycles.

"Our Bikes4Kids program gives children what they need to experience the thrill of riding a bicycle and hopefully pursue other healthy outdoor activities," said Bill O'Connell, who started the program for the Westchester Cycle Club.

Miller's Bikes contributed labor, expertise, storage and transportation.

"It's truly rewarding to spend our time helping kids experience what we all love about bicycling, and to see joy on their faces when they get their very first bike," said bike shop owner Taka Andrews.

People or bike shops who wish to contribute bikes to these programs should contact Bill O'Connell at WCCBikes4Kids@gmail.com or Cristiana Villani at linkinghandlebars@gmail.com
