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!

Just when you thought it was too hot and muggy to get on the bike comes the return of Carl's Cowabunga Ride on August 16. There will be two versions for this ride. If you want a longer ride you can meet at Rancho San Diego Starbucks for a 7:30 am sharp start time; for a shorter ride you can start at 8:15 am from the bike path at Plaza Bonita. The earlier start group will meet up with the Plaza Bonita groiup for the continued ride to Cowabunga's. Sweat as much as you like, but know that on this day, there will be ice cream!
