About Our Club

The Skagit Bicycle Club is a not for profit organization centered in Skagit County, WA. Our membership of approximately 250 people promotes and advocates for bicycling as well as conducting many rides and other activities throughout the year.

We operate with the following goals and objectives:

To support health and fitness through cycling
To support and promote scheduled rides for cyclists of all abilities
To provide bicycling safety education to the community
To protect the rights and interests of cyclists
To provide concise and updated information on area club events
To meet new friends and have fun

The club was first organized in November of 1989 by local cycling enthusiasts. Click here for a short history of the early days of the club. Since those early days the club has grown and prospered. We provide group riding opportunities all year round. Rides are available for all skill levels on the All About Rides page and are advertised on the Events page. We partner with other cycling clubs in the North Puget Sound through the North Puget Sound Bike Alliance  to offer other riding opportunities and discounts for participation in rides sponsored by partner clubs.

Each spring we hold the Spring Classic to raise funds for the local groups we  support. This is the premier one day ride in the north Puget Sound region with beautiful scenery, quiet roads and great food. Each year we host 400 to 600 riders for this fabulous event.

If you are interested in riding, find a ride on our Events calendar that suits your skills and available time, then just show up with your bike and helmet. You will be welcomed by a group of friendly people that share your interests. You don’t have to be a member to participate in a ride. We do encourage those that want to ride regularly to join because of liability insurance issues. But feel free to come out and enjoy riding with a new group of friends.
