The Club offers area cyclists the camaraderie and social rewards of associating with others who share the enjoyment of cycling. Social events and regular monthly meetings provide a venue for sharing cycling interests, health and fitness information and an opportunity to suggest and support new cycling events and activities. Club members are able to take advantage of a variety of valuable discounts on bike parts and supplies and other services and products offered by our sponsors.
Our Club rides allow riders to explore new routes and new areas while enjoying the support and encouragement of fellow cyclists. We provide Accident insurance through the League of American Cyclists for members participating in club sponsored rides that augments members existing medical insurance. Joining with other cyclists is an opportunity to share safety concerns and provide collective support to lobby our elected/appointed officials for improvements that enhance cycling safety. As an active recreational organization the Club is also an avenue for supporting other recreation related functions and events that enhance our community.
The SFCC posts upcoming club rides and events regularly on its website.

General meetings are held once a month at 6:00pm at a location TBD. All members are highly encouraged to attend, participate in discussions, and meet other club members. Bring your comments and creative ideas as YOU can make an impact on our newly formed club.
No—All interested cyclists are invited to participate in any Club ride. Non-members are asked to sign a short waiver for insurance purposes but all other requirements are the same as those that apply to members.
All riders are required to wear approved helmets, comply with applicable traffic laws and observe normal safety practices.
No. Club rides are intended to be recreational, not competitive. All rides are no–drop rides. While some participants may elect to ride at a faster pace than the general group, ride leaders will ensure no rider is dropped. Any rider does have the option of telling the ride leader that they do not wish to be swept. Please note that the ride leader will still be required to wait at the finish location of the ride until all riders are accounted for. It is highly recommended that any rider wishing to not be swept carry a cell phone or ride with a buddy.
Except in very rare situations that would be identified in the ride description, SAG vehicles are not provided for normal Club rides.
Riders are encouraged to review ride descriptions of distance, anticipated pace, topography and elevation gain to select rides that match their ability and interest. Riders should also consider weather conditions including temperature, wind, possible precipitation, and the availability (or lack of) water and food . When questions remain the listed ride leader should be contacted.
Since we are primarily a road bike riding club, you need a good reliable road bike. A listing of what you should bring to the rides can be found here.
Club rides are posted on the ride calendar. Clicking on any listed ride will bring up details on ride type, distance, start location, time, and ride leader.
