Welcome to the Westchester Cycle Club!

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 were 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 for you to join us. A $40 annual membership provides you with a variety of rides, and you can add up to 4 family members for$25 each; 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 Dutchess and Fairfield (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. If you plan to join us on a group ride, make sure to read our Guide to Group Rides. We also schedule multi-paced rides once a month with food, drink and camaraderie afterward. 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. Please treat yourself to one of our immediate benefits: member discounts at many Westchester bike shops!  You can also sign up for our monthly newsletter without becoming a member here.


Velo d'Hommes 2024

Join the Rockland Bicycling Club for the Velo d'Hommes.

Velo d'Hommes, which roughly translates to a men's bike ride, offers a chance to make new friends and learn about cycling while touring some of the area's quiet, scenic roads. All the rides will be "no-drop," meaning no one will be left behind, and groups may be split into faster/slower speeds to make sure everyone's riding at a comfortable pace.
