Bombay Bicycle Club started in 1974 with Sunday morning rides and activities. Today, the club sponsors leisure rides from April through November. Riders choose distances from 25 to 50 miles or more on scenic back roads (Ride Schedule). Our rides are rated flat, moderately hilly, or hilly and we usually offer short and long routes. Camaraderie, map and cue sheet are provided. The club also offers 25-mile Thursday Evening Social Rides from various locations in DaneCounty.
Club membership is open to all. BBC rides are available without charge to non-members; however, riders must wear a helmet and sign a liability release. We encourage regular riders to become club members. Show your support by becoming a ride leader or consider volunteering for other club activities. There are no fees per ride unless specifically mentioned in the schedule.
In addition to our Ride Schedule, Bombay Bicycle Club offers an endurance training series, BCETS (Bombay Challenge Event Training series), that prepares riders for events like the Horrible Hilly Hundreds and the Dairyland Dare. We also host the Wright Stuff Century Ride, our traditional fund raiser for the club. Our fully supported Wright Stuff Century attracts cyclists from throughout the Midwest.
