Welcome to the
El Paso Bicycle Club
The El Paso Bicycle Club is a group of recreational road cyclists with a focus on excercise and fun. The club sponsers rides just about every Saturday and Sunday through out the year and an evening ride on Wednesdays from mid-March through October. If you are seeking a group that shares your interest in cycling you will find friends in the El Paso Bicycle Club. Our rides are free and open the the public so please join us on one of our weekend adventures. For general information about our rides and maps to ride start locations visit the About Our Rides page.
We require all riders to wear certified helmets on all club rides.
For the schedule of upcoming rides visit the club calendar hosted by Meetup.com* or the links in the right-hand column of this page for the date, time and description of all our upcoming rides. We also sponsor a page on Meetup.com for club members and other cyclists to schedule their own impromptu, non-sponsored rides. For route maps and descriptions of some great rides in the El Paso area visit our Maps & Routes page.
*NOTE: We are in the process converting the club calendar to Meetup.com. All calendar links should take you to Meetup except for the links in the right column of this page. We will be converting those links in the near future. If you want to look at the old calendar you will find a link at the bottom of the left column of this page.

Beginner and Intermediate Group (B/IG)
If you are just getting into cycling, want to learn more about the sport, or would like to make new friends to ride with then the Beginner and Intermediate Group (B/IG) is for you. B/IG rides are designed to be both educational and fun. Each week before the ride a different cycling related topic is presented. Topics range from riding in a group (pace line) to bicycle maintenance and repair. Riding skills are discussed during a short pre-ride presentation and then reinforced on the ride that follows. The club typically schedules at least weekend distance ride every month specifically for B/IG riders. For more details on the program please visit the B/IG web page. The 2015 B/IG program will kick off in April, so check back here for more information in mid March.
