The Gainesville Cycling Club is a loosely organized group formed for the purpose of riding bikes! It was formed in 1980 with about 25 local riders; the membership dropped to about 10 or so in 1987, and the club was later incorporated in 1991. Turn the clock forward, and membership has grown to over 1,000 members. The club features a diverse group of cyclists ranging from commuters, sight seeing groups, hand cyclists, tandem riders, all the way to amateur bike racers. We encourage all persons who ride bicycles for recreation and/or transportation, or who are interested in those activities, to join the club!
