The WBC is a nonprofit recreational and touring club for bicyclists of all ages and abilities. For over three decades, the Westerville Bicycle Club has been the source of cycling pleasure for hundreds of bicyclists.
If you are a new rider who enjoys cycling or want to get more involved in the sport, the Westerville Bicycle Club will introduce you to group riding: the quickest, easiest, safest way to learn more about bicycling. You will benefit from the diverse riding styles and social interaction of some of Central Ohio’s most experienced riders. You’ll not only have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of rides but also learn more about maintenance/repair, accessory selection, and safe riding techniques.
If you are already an experienced rider, the WBC offers you new challenges. We have a very active ride schedule that includes weekend rides throughout the year, Wednesday evening rides from April through September, Monday morning rides between 50 and 60 miles. Most of our rides have distance options so they appeal to all skill levels; and are routed using quiet, back roads away from heavy traffic. Many members enjoy group trips to out-of-town/state organized rides. The WBC sponsors its own organized century tour, the Dry Run Century each September. This is a fun, volunteer supported effort that involves many club members. Also throughout the entire year, the WBC Social Committee is busy putting together events to bring the members together off the bicycle which in the past have included: dinners, pizza parties, backyard cook-outs, picnics, winter hikes, cross country ski, and an annual Winter Banquet.
The club’s newsletter, Pedal Pusher and Ride Calendar is distributed by email to current members. The calendar contains upcoming rides and events, information about area and out-of-town patch rides, and other interesting cycling-related material. Members are invited to submit photos and articles for publication in our Pedal Pusher, and may take advantage of free advertising. Members will also be added to a email list which is used as a reminder of upcoming events and rides, last minute plan changes due to weather, or impromtu rides and activities that weren't published on the calendar.
The Westerville Bicycle Club affiliations include the League of American Bicyclists and Adventure Cycling. The club makes annual donations to support bicycle advocacy organizations and bicycling infrastructure projects, but you are not required to join them.
The WBC welcomes guests at our rides, so you and your friends have an invitation to ride with us anytime. Check the Events Calendar at this site to get updated information about the week’s rides.
