Do stuff with and for your neighbors

does anyone know anything about cycling groups or clubs in or around JP? Recently moved here from Los Angeles, and I LOVE cycling... both for leisure and for exercise.

Hi Steven- welcome to JP from the left coast. The only group I know of that has regular meeting times is at Ferris Wheels bike shop on South Street. Its a good group to learn some short road loops and meet people and ride. I'd say its beginner to intermediate level of riding. THey probably have the meeting times posted on their website, they meet at the shop.

There is also Boston Road Club which has some rides posted on their website. They offer some longer, more intense rides starting out in Newton or further out.

I'm sure there are more but thats a good start for you.
Thanks Jeremy! I appreciate you taking the time to respond, and giving me some great tips. I'll look into both of those organizations!
Hi Steven.. Welcome..

.. a little more is there are two google groups. The jpbike and Rozziebike. they are very good about keeping us posted as to what's happening in terms of bike initiatives and announcing organized rides..

Also, meetup.com has biking groups.

Are you a bike commuter? I ride from Forest Hills down to the seaport area almost every day.

Thanks, Diane! Very helpful. I joined both of those groups.

I'm mostly a recreational rider. I am self-employed, but I usually commute to work locations by bus or 'T'.
You might also want to check out the Charles River Wheelmen rides that leave at 8:30 every Saturday from Nahanton Park in Newton (about a 25 min ride from the monument) there are plenty of people riding all year long, and they split it into speed and distance for racers and recreational cyclists.
