Bikes & Brews Trail Ride Group

LIMITED PARKING SATURDAY, OCT. 28TH
"Vinoy Parking Lots Closed; Large Swim Meet – Pool Lot Closed; Purple Stride walk will have the road closed starting at 7:15 AM along North Shore, and Bayshore to Albert Whitted Park. Tennis Court Lots will open but first come first serve."

SPBC Members only may sign up for urgent SPBC text messages for immediate notification of last minute changes.

Don't forget...rides have returned to the 8:30 AM start time until the heat returns in the Spring.

Thank you to all who participated in the SPBC 2nd Annual "Bikes & Brews" Trail Ride on Sunday! We had about 55 SPBC members join the ride nearly doubling last year's attendance. A special THANK YOU to Jay Dingman at Barley Mow Brewing Co. and Dennis Decker at Pinellas Ale Works. Dennis not only supported our ride but volunteered to pick up the sandwiches so no one had to miss the ride.

This ride wouldn't have happened without the hard work of Adam Mullikin, who coordinated the ride and Kris Woodcock, who arranged for the food. We made life hard on Kris by continually upping the numbers but Kris came through for us, as always!

Members Only can find ordering information for the new SPBC jerseys (short & long), bibs or shorts on our information page.

A BeSpokeKit representative will be onsite before and after the Oct 14th rides (at the pool before, and at Paciugo's afterward), with their FitKit stuff for folks to check fit for jerseys and shorts.



Congratulations to Ron Quincel, the

Irma Aftermath
Irma has affected each of us in some way. Hopefully none of our members or families has suffered any personal loss, injuries or substantial property loss.

SPBC understands due to Hurricane Irma, renewing your membership may be the least of your priorities. If you receive a renewal or expiration notice, and you are still facing challenges from Irma, please contact our membership director for assistance.

New to Group Riding? Here's how
and specifically about our group rides

 

Florida's #1 bicycle club was established in 1968. The St. Petersburg Bicycle Club, Inc. is a non-profit, social and recreational club that exists to promote safe, satisfying bicycling opportunities to both club members and the general public of all ages and skill levels, through planned activities and events.
 

Why become a member?

It's about quality of life, and these words from one SPBC member express the quality we share as a family of riders.

 

After nearly 40 years of riding in other parts of the country I never had ridden with groups much. I guess those few times I had I did not feel particularly welcomed.

 

When I first moved to Florida a couple of years ago, I joined the St. Pete Bike Club not so much to ride but to meet people. The best way to do that was to join the daily group rides and the coffee klatch afterwards. But I fully intended to return to solo riding once I met some folks.

 

I was not a particularly strong rider, but that didn't concern those I rode with. They were helpful, supportive and non-judgmental. I learned a lot. And there were plenty of opportunities to push myself. I also found that group riding seemed safer. It's hard for motorists not to notice anywhere from five to 50 cyclists riding together.

 

SPBC also was welcoming to new ideas and passionate about safety and advocating for riders, so I know with my small membership dues I'd have a chance to contribute as well as benefit.

Soon the idea of returning to solo riding was behind me. I enjoy the camaraderie both during and after the rides. That coffee klatch is now part of my daily routine (and isn't it great that this can be done outdoors year around!)


Why wouldn't YOU want to be a part of such a great group?
