Your participation and dues benefit the bicycling community. Members are also invited to the June picnic and Christmas party.
If you enjoy camping, you might like to gear up for one of the multi-day tours below. These rides tend to be slower than a typical morning road rides. New ride leaders with new and old routes are appreciated for any speed and distance. Please log your miles under ABC at bikejournal.com and get your Road I.D.s through our affiliates’ page on our website and support our sponsors.
Below are the upcoming special rides with tentative dates that we are familiar with right now. Also, check the Ride Schedule for the weekend and standing rides and the ABC Calendar longer term planning and for updates. We are getting good participation in the Tuesday morning ride and the Thursday Retired Ride and the first Friday Sandwiching in History Ride. ABC members are eligible to join Arkansas Federal Credit Union and they are covered on club rides with our insurance. Also out our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/ARbicycleclub. We also have riders joining the Ride the Fault and Michigander rides this summer. You can register for these on our website, as well as the event page. This way we have a list of those who may want to carpool for an out-of-state ride. Also a nice statewide bicycling event calendar is posted at bikearkansas.com.
