Meetings and Learning: 

Get updates and information--often from a guest speaker--about cycling related topics, such as local trails, bike lane and street improvements, bike maintenance and equipment, and fitness and nutrition. Share experiences and expertise with other members.


Get hands-on bike skills, such as bike safety from certified instructors, changing flats with a bike mechanic, and bike setup for self-supported touring.



Participate in a variety of cycling tours throughout California and even world-wide. Both supported and self-supported.

Social Riding and Events:

Have fun, because the Bike Hikers are a recreational and social riding club! Most rides feature a coffee or food stop scheduled so that riders of varying abilities can socialize together. Enjoy other social events such as our Picnic, Annual Banquet, Holiday Party and special food rides.

Mileage Tracking:

We record your miles, and recognize all of your accomplishments and participation at our Annual Awards Banquet.
