STARTING A CYCLING CLUB

One way to get yourself and others more evolved in cycling is to form a local cycling club. Having others to help plan rides and peer support both help to get people out on the road. Bicycle clubs provide members information on new places to ride, a body of like-minded people to ride with, a source of answers to cycling (and life) questions and a way to improve the health of its members. There are no rules or magic wand for starting a bike club. Forming a club is often an effort in community organizing, and community organizing is a effort in educating / marketing (i.e. "join the club to ride more often," "join the club for camaraderie," "join the club to improve fitness," "join the club to learn how to ride better," "join the club to share your knowledge and experience with others," etc.)
