Ride Info

Our Ride Calendar has a large variety of rides on Thursday evenings, Saturday, Sunday and Monday mornings from April through November. Routes are usually between 25 to 50 miles or more on scenic back roads. Routes typically have short and long options. To help you decide which route to choose, they include a hilliness rating (see below). Thursday evening rides usually meet afterwards in a local restaurant, it's a great way to meet members and get to know the club. Sunday morning rides often include a more challenging long option. We also have women-led rides on some Saturdays.


Starting times and locations are listed on the Ride Calendar. The ride leader will organize staggered start groups based on average speed to encourage no-drop riding.


Have the route loaded to your GPS device or bring a printed RWGPS map/cue sheet. Have at least 1 water bottle and be prepared to fix a flat (spare tube, pump, patch kit, tire levers, and know-how)

BBC promotes a high standard of safety and rider etiquette for the wellbeing of you and your fellow riders. Our rides are not races. Please familiarize yourself with the BBC Rider Safety Responsibilities

While the Bombay Bicycle Club cannot assume responsibility for riders or their equipment, ride leaders and riders will assist in any way they can.


During the winter months, members can join scheduled BBC Zwift Meetup rides. The Zwift Virtual Rides page is your resource for everything Zwift. Here you will find information to help you with equipment choices, using Discord and participating in BBC Zwift rides.
