The Crescent CIty Cyclists welcome cyclists of all abilities. Non-members are permitted on one (1) ride before joining the club. If you are joining on or before August 31, your membership will expire on December 31 of this year. If you are joining on or after September 1, your membership will expire on December 31 of next year. All rides are "free" to members except special events. Please notice the word ride, not race. Once your payment has been processed, you will receive an acknowledgement email and you will have access to the Members Only areas of the website.
The scenic roads on the Northshore provide a stress relieving country experience, riding at your own pace following a mapped route. Due to limited parking at some country ride starts, and to save gas, car pooling is encouraged. City rides may be fast or slow, but are always group outings which sometimes stop for breakfast or lunch. Feel free to call ride leaders about any concerns. in addition to regularly scheduled weekend rides, the CCC also sponsors workshops, annual century rides, overnight tours and various special events.
Helmets are required on all CCC rides. Be prepared to repair flat tires. Carry a patch kit, spare tube, pump, tire tool, and water and snacks, especially on country rides. Always ride as near to the right side of the roadway as practicable. Cycling can be dangerous and only becomes relatively safe when the cyclist is well informed, careful, law abiding and has gained experience on the road.
We are a volunteer organization. We cannot function without the assistance of members. Please check the categories where you and/or your family members can help. Check all that apply.
