Welcome to Bike Buddies Cycling Club
Bike Buddies Cycling Club is the result of two groups of riders and friends merging together with a goal to advance participation in cycling and cycling related activities. Though we are a licensed United States Cycling Federation club, most of our riders have never raced, nor will they! Some did not even start to ride a bike until well into their adult lives.
We welcome all skill levels of riding from someone who has never been on a group ride to professional cyclists. Some members race on the road, some in a velodrome, some are mountain bike racers, some are ultra distance riders, and finally some just like to go out and ride with their friends every Saturday. Everyone will benefit, have fun, and maybe learn a thing or two about cycling and how to be better.
In the end, we have two main objectives and they are to increase participation in the sport of cycling at any level and to improve our local community. If either of these objectives sound like something you would be interested in being involved with, come on out and ride with us! We usually ride in the East County of San Diego.
Get out there and ride!

Visitors and new riders, the coffee is on us!
Check out our facebook page to see if anyone wants to do a longer or different ride that you might want to join.
This Saturday, December 5, is our annual Toy Drive. Bring your new unwrapped toys to this Saturdays ride. We help the children at the El Cajon Boys and Girls Club (ages 6 to 12). If you prefer not to shop you can always give a monetary donation. Here is a picture of the previous years ride. We meet at our usual Saturday starting point in Rancho San Diego and ride to the Boys and Girls Club. There will be someone driving the route to transport the gifts for us. Thanks ahead of time for your donations to the children.
