Why Ride?

The Blue Ridge Bicycle Club is made up of men and women of all ages with various skills and endurance levels most of whom live in the Western North Carolina area. BRBC provides group rides for all levels with ride leaders and sweeps so there is “no one left behind”.

We sponsor the WNC Flyer. This event attracts people from all over the country. The WNC Flyer has provided the revenue for us to support bicycle and healthy living advocacy in our area.

Because we are a group of over 1,000 members we have a substantial voice which is heard when it comes to acquiring bike lanes, greenways and other bicycle related improvements in our area. Our programs and dues allow us to back up our voices with donations to help fund these improvements.

You may ask “What is the best part of being a member in the BRBC?” The answer – Our Members. We are a group of over 1,000 people who simply enjoy riding and enjoy the company of other riders. Our members volunteer to lead rides so others can experience the joy of sitting on a bike and experiencing all that Western North Carolina has to offer – the views of the mountains, pastures, streams and waterfalls, seen from a bike. But let’s not kid ourselves – we just love the feeling we get every time we hop on our bike and pedal – pedal – pedal. The exhilarating sense of freedom!!

Last but not least, bike riding is good for your health and for the environment. It is a “clean” sport. We don’t have to sacrifice the environment to have a good time. It is the most fun you can have while striving to stay healthy.

Let’s have some fun – Come Ride With Us. Click on On-Line Membership Entry or download the Mail-in Membership Application (takes 1-2 weeks).
