What is the Western Wheelers Bicycle Club?
Western Wheelers Bicycle Club, Inc., is a nonprofit organization based on the San Francisco Peninsula. It hosts a variety of rides every month to suit cyclists of all abilities. We have regular weekday morning rides, evening rides during the summer, and rides every weekend. Currently, most rides are road rides, but mountain bikes can be used. Guests are welcome on club rides, unless the description of the ride says that it’s for members only. If you go on a few rides and find them enjoyable, then you are encouraged to join the club.
LDT Ride Series
The Long Distance Training (LDT) is a series of weekend rides, usually on Saturdays, that start out easy in January and get progressively more difficult each week. There are several routes offered, with the riders usually meeting together for lunch. The more advanced riders do the Davis Double Century in May. The first few LDT rides may be attended by anyone, but later rides are for Western Wheelers members only.
The club’s big annual event is the Sequoia Century, providing the opportunity to complete a fully supported 100-mile ride. There are shorter options available also.
We have evening meetings with speakers on a variety of topics. Meetings are open to the public. We also have Spring and Fall picnics, Ice Cream Socials, an annual Ride Leaders’ Barbecue, a December Holiday Party and the Christmas Lights Ride and Potluck. Members receive the monthly newsletter, The Flat Tyre, and can attend members-only rides, picnics, and other special events.
