The COVID-19 pandemic situation is changing very quickly. Fairfield County has been hit very hard by this virus and our state and local governments have mandated Social Distancing as a means to slow its spread. In response, Sound Cyclists Bicycle Club has suspended all group rides and other social gatherings until further notice.
The club's Ride Library and RidewithGPS are still available for those who choose to do solo rides. If you do venture out, keep in mind that many of our usual food stops are also closed, so plan for alternate stops or carry an additional snack and water. Also, be sure to check that you have spare tubes and an inflation device.
Ride News will remain open for general club communications, however, it should not be used to organize outdoor group rides or other gatherings.
There has been some discussion about organizing indoor group Zwift rides. We will inform you as this develops. In the meantime you can keep up with your fellow riders via the SCBC Facebook page and on Instagram .
Please keep healthy and safe. Hopefully, we'll meet up on a group ride in the not too distant future.
Sound Cyclists Bicycle Club
Welcome to Sound Cyclists!
We are a member-run bicycle club in Fairfield County, CT, that has been riding since 1977. Annually we provide more than 1300 organized rides and other cycling related activities for our members and the community, which stress safety, fun and fitness, for all levels of riders. Sound Cyclists hosts social activities and the Bloomin' Metric®, one of the North East's premier cycling events, offering rides from 15 to 60 miles. The club also provides the opportunity for cyclists to improve their riding skills. An advocate of safe cycling in Fairfield County, and the State of Connecticut, Sound Cyclists actively supports cycling and related charitable activities in the area.
Sound Cyclists is open to everyone and you can join us for a $35 annual family membership. We offer a variety of group rides, both on and off road, from beginner to expert levels, so you will find the right pace ride for you. If you are new to cycling, check out our information for new and less experienced cyclists. Our rides span scenic Fairfield County, the adjoining areas, and we also offer multi-day out-of-state rides. Our routes are available to members through RidewithGPS, and have custom detailed cue sheets. We schedule social activities throughout the year, both post-ride gatherings and social events.
