ABC and COVID-19 update 05/30/2020 - ABC Rides Have Resumed   with the caveats that rides will comply with government requirements (small groups, physical distancing, face masks when stopped, proper hygiene, etc.), consist of groups 10 riders or less who will depart several minutes apart, riders will go to the back of the line to clear sinuses, and will have a handkerchief. Please park your car in every other space. Check the Full Event Calendar frequently as more ABC rides are being posted. And finally, please support your local bike shop like Parvilla in Edgewater, Annapolis Velo, and Bike Doctor locations.

Thank you and "join the ride", John C. Tyrrell, President, ABC

Welcome to Annapolis Bicycle Club tm

"Join the Ride"

Who We Are

The Annapolis Bicycle Club, founded in 1993, is a not-for-profit, trademarked, growth oriented membership organization dedicated to the interests of recreational cycling enthusiasts. Our interests are recreation, exercise, safety and camaraderie. We don't pollute or block traffic and we encourage cyclists to adhere to traffic laws.

We have two activities. We ride bicycles and we have fun all at the same time.

Our Rides

We produce several hundred rides per year during the week and on weekends, all year long. We have rides for the lean and mean cyclist who just maxxed out the credit card buying a titanium frame with a Campy Record gruppo to anybody who has a bike in good condition and a body that would like to get there.

Here's the kinds of rides we offer:

  • Regularly scheduled rides around the Annapolis area on certain weekdays (even in the winter) and on Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays. They include roads and trails.
  • Sunday touring rides in the Annapolis area and in nearby scenic areas such as the Eastern Shore, Western Maryland and Virginia. The Cherry Blossom ride in DC is a favorite.
  • Summer weekend rides to places such as Bethany Beach, Gettysburg and the Shenandoah Valley.

For rides and tours away from the Annapolis area, such as the Seagull Century on Maryland's Eastern Shore, Bike Florida, and Bike Virginia, members often carpool to reduce costs and increase enjoyment of these activities. 

Check back frequently to the Events link on the website for ride announcements.

Contact our Ride Coordinators if you would like to suggest a ride or lead a ride. We are seeking more ride leaders and will train you.

Our Social Events

ABC members socialize during and after rides and at our monthly Third Thursday Get Together for current, new, and past members, and their guests. TTGT takes place at different Annapolis area restaurants at 6pm and is a great time. Bring a sense of humor, an appetite, and a few good stories to share.

We have our annual winter holiday 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. 

Communications

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 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.
