"Sean and I are amazed with the friends we have made, the quality of people we encounter and simply just how much fun we have had doing the sport we love. We knew people love to cycle and be active. We knew people would want to come together and share the fun. We had no idea we would grow to over 300 members in only our second year. RBSC has a wonderful group of organizers and sponsors who are very interested in supporting the community of athletes as a whole, making Ridgefield an even better place to challenge yourself or simply get out and ride your bike," says club President Jacqui Dowd. "This club provides a platform for people to connect to others in the sports they love or have support in trying something new."
The club's mission is to create a community of local cyclists through fun, competition, advocacy, road safety and etiquette, education and the pure enjoyment of cycling and multi-sport.
Membership is $40 and includes access to all club training rides, recreational rides, activities and social events, member directory, club clothing at club pricing, discounts, access to local rides and more. "Thirsty Thursday and Sunday morning rides are club favorites."
