Wheeling Wheelmen
  • Welcome To the Wheeling Wheelmen.

    The Wheeling Wheelmen Bicycle Club founded by Phyllis Harmon, had its first meeting on April 26, 1970 with over 100 members in attendance. Since that time, the club has grown to almost 300 men and women serving the Northwest Chicagoland area with organized rides, social outings, informative meetings, bicycle advocacy, and a lot of friendship.

  • 2019 Club Ride Schedule by Month

    Ride Information
    January February March April
    May June July August
    September October November December
  • Wheeling Wheelmen club rides are done in a 'ride at your own pace' format. Cue sheets are provided so that, depending on who shows up, riders of similar riding ability can get together and ride at a pace that works best for them.

    Most rides will have anywhere from 5 to 25 riders. Almost all rides have rest stops where riders can re-group if they want.

    Club rides leave at the posted time. Check the ride start times and arrive early enough to set up your bike, sign in, get your cue sheet and meet the other riders. Club rides are a good way to improve your fitness and riding skills.

    The 2019 ride schedule, from March 17 to October 31, will have almost 300 rides this season!

    There are short and long mileage options every weekend as well as a variety of weekday and evening rides.

    It is election time for the Wheeling Wheelmen board for the upcoming season. Four board members (President, Vice-President, Secretary and Publicity Chair) are NOT running for re-election and need to be found. Joe Beemster has been able to find willing members to fill these positions but other suggestions are more than welcome.
    The ballot also allows you to nominate a fellow biker for the '2019 Good Samaritan Award'.
    The voting will be open until October 31.
