Everyone is welcome to ride with the El Paso Bicycle Club, you do not need to be a member to join us. The Club sponsors several rides during the week and just about every Saturday and Sunday throughout the year. A complete list of all the club sponsored rides can be found on our MeetUp calendar.
Wednesday Night Ride
Daylight Savings Time is when the exciting season of El Paso’s famous Wednesday Night Bike Ride (WNBR) starts. Every year from spring to fall, cyclists from all over the area, and representing different groups descend on the upper valley roads for a fast paced late afternoon ride. The start time changes throughout the season to maximize riding in bright daylight. Check our calendar for current start times.
El Paso Bicycle Club members roll out together and warm up for a few miles as they make their way out towards the WNBR “Club Loop.” The Club Loop is a 20 mile flat ride that takes one out from the bustling city out onto rural agricultural roads. This ride is classified as “Leaderless” meaning that the group is out on its own with out a designated ride leader to dictate the pace. Traditionally the WNBR is fast paced, with riders trying to hold the fastest pace for the longest time possible. True camaraderie manifests as the dropped cyclists regroup and ride in as a groupetto.
Thursday Morning Cruise
The Thursday morning cruise starts from the Starbucks at the Outlet Mall and is a no-drop casual paced (14-16 mph) year-round ride suitable for all cycling aficionados. Road bikes, touring bikes, mountain bikes, gravel bikes, recumbent bikes, folding bikes, and e-bikes, have all joined in on the Thursday morning action. Some club members claim that this ride is an excellent recovery ride for the WNBR. Although the Thursday morning route varies, it is always exciting and never boring. Please check the club calendar the night before for the current start time as it may change throughout the season to maximize daylight and weather conditions.
Although the Wednesday night ride and the Thursday morning ride are mainstays of the club calendar, they are not the only rides offered by the El Paso Bicycle Club. We encourage you to check our calendar for the various other rides you may like to join us on. Please check the club calendar the night before a ride for possible updates.
