Promoting bicycling in the South Puget Sound region for more than 30 years!


Please note that all Saturday Social Rides (unless otherwise noted) depart at 10:00 a.m. Please arrive early enough to sign in, prep your bike and get ride instructions. Due to the club’s insurance policy, participants may ride once as a guest of the club. Return riders must be members in good standing of the CBC. All participants are expected to follow the club’s Safe Riding Guidelines.

CBC is seeking members to lead Saturday Social Rides in 2016. We can walk you through the responsibilities – primarily focused on safety – and also will team you up with an experienced leader to help you learn the ropes.

Below is an abbreviated list of upcoming Saturday Social rides. Click on the ride title for complete ride information. For a more detailed list of upcoming rides, click here.

About the Saturday Social Rides

These rides are designed to give plenty of opportunities to chat with fellow cyclists, view the scenery and have fun! Riders should be capable of riding for 2-3 hours at the lowest pace noted for the ride (see Pace Descriptions below). There may be more than one pace group on each ride, but no one will be dropped. Ride start time is 10 a.m. (unless otherwise noted) and most rides proceed even if it is lightly raining. Please arrive 10-15 minutes early and be ready to depart at the start time. Bring adequate food and water, and basic tools to fix a flat. Maps and cue sheets will be provided on each ride. Feel free to contact the ride leaders with questions ahead of time.
