Wheeling Wheelmen
The Wheeling Wheelmen are changing from 'Yahoo Groups' to 'Groups.io' on October 31st.

As many of you have heard, then Yahoo Groups will be shutting down on December 15, 2020. Yahoo Mail features will continue to function as expected. You can click here for additional information about the shut down.

This also means that the Wheeling Wheelmen need to find a suitable replacement for Yahoo Groups. Our Club Group Moderator, Jim Boyer, has been researching various solutions that have similar options as Yahoo Groups. The obvious choice was Groups.io that, apart from the options, also allows us to easily import exsisting members of Yahoo Groups based on email address and name (if available).

When we upload the Yahoo Groups member list to Groups.io everyone of you will receive an email with the following subject: 'Welcome to wheelingwheelmen@groups.io'. If you decide to join the group, then just reply to the this email. Just like with the Yahoo Groups links to Subscribe, Unsubscribe or Post a Message will be available on the home page as well as under the Club Information menu dropdown.

  • 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.

  • 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 2020 ride schedule, from March 21 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.
