Who We Are
The Annapolis Bicycle Club, founded in 1993, is a not-for-profit, service marked, growth oriented cycling organization dedicated to advancing cycling skills in endurance, speed, performance, route variety, group dynamics, and the interests of recreational cycling enthusiasts. Our interests include safety, exercise, and camaraderie.
Our members cycle in ABC and other organizations' A, B, C, and D level events, including single and multi-day events ranging from short to hundreds of miles at modest to very fast speeds. We also train and compete on-line on Rouvy and Zwift.
We have two activities. We ride bicycles and we have fun at the same time.
We produce several hundred rides per year during the week and on weekends, all year long. We have rides for the lean and mean A and B level cyclist who just maxxed out the credit card buying a carbon frame with a SRAM Red eTap gruppo through C level cyclists who have a bike in good condition and a body that would like to get and stay there.
Rides we offer and participate in:
For rides on Maryland's Eastern Shore, in VA, DC, PA, etc, members often carpool to reduce costs and increase enjoyment of these activities.
Check back frequently to the Calendar link on the website for ride announcements.
Contact our Ride Coordinators at "rides AT annapolisbicycleclub. org" if you would like to suggest a ride or lead a ride. We are seeking more ride leaders and will train you before you lead.
Our Social Events
ABC members socialize during and after rides and at our monthly Third Thursday Get Together cyclist socials for current, new, and past members, and their guests. TTGT takes place at different Annapolis area restaurants at 6pm and is a great time to discuss cycling off of the bike and off the road.
We have our annual dinner and party at very nice venues and a summer/autumn picnic for the whole family. ABC subsidizes the costs.
ABC members plan and operate the rest stops at the LifeLine100 annual event.
All members have access to the website and receive our newsletter, Tailwind Express, which details all activities and rides plus features information on bicycle advocacy and news on club activities.
Members also have a smart phone app for rides, directory, information.
We have members-only club on Strava to see how and what we are doing.
Members receive weekly emails about rides and other topics of interest.
Most important - members have access to other members for information and tips on rides and best routes in the Annapolis area. Many of our riders have been riding for years and years and possess a wealth of information they are happy to share with you. Member contact information is in the members only area on the website.
General emails to abc AT annapolisbicycleclub. org and all details for members are located in the members only area of the website.
