Bicycle Riding Clubs in Atlanta

Bicycle Riding Clubs in Atlanta
Bicycling clubs in the Atlanta, Georgia, metro area are designed to provide information about local rides, races and cycling events as well as to provide a social network on and off the bike. Because of Atlanta's spread out geography, the clubs are built around Internet sites and forums. Even those that engage in an active calendar of events do not have regularly scheduled membership meetings.
 

Southern Bicycle League

Atlanta's Southern Bicycle League offers riding opportunities for cyclists at many different levels. The group organizes and leads over a thousand rides in the metro area every year, and it sponsors a variety of social events, including a summer picnic and a Christmas party. In addition, monthly club socials allow new and old friends to meet in a casual atmosphere. All members receive the SBL's monthly magazine, FreeWheelin', which features an calendar of rides in metro Atlanta, along with articles and information on safety, advocacy, touring and riding technique. The club's biggest event is the annual Scott Wilson Century ride, a fundraiser for cancer research in honor of a former club president.

North Atlanta Riding Club

The North Atlanta Riding Club is a web-based cycling group, that serves as a conduit and organizer of group rides and get-togethers for cyclists in the northern suburbs and surrounding metro area of Atlanta. It's a loose group of riders who work through the club's online forum to keep up to date on the local cycling scene and pass the word about rides and who's riding in them. For beginners or those new to the area, it's a place to ask questions and get local recommendations. Free registration is necessary to use the forums on the website.

Atlanta Cycling

The Atlanta Cycling Club is based out of the stores of Atlanta Cycling. While the club offers a steady schedule of rides at different levels, it's a good place for those who are looking to get into racing to start getting experience working with better riders and learning about group riding and tactics. Club members race under sponsorship of the club and enjoy discounts for United States Cycling Federation and North American Mountain Biking Association events.
