2011 Note: Unfortunately, the Cheverly Bike Club seems to have fallen by the wayside. For anyone interested, the domain name CheverlyBikeClub is available!
A friend of mine (and a Cheverly resident) started the Cheverly Bike Club several months ago with the following goals in mind:
This site was created as a result of a conversation between friends. We were trying to find ways to bike to work. While researching bike paths, safety tips, and various other biking information, I joked that we should start a bike club in Cheverly. This prompted us to buy the domain name CheverlyBikeClub.org. Our goal for this site is to provide a biking resource to the Cheverly community. This resource will provide tips on bike safety, bike routes in and around Cheverly, biking equipment reviews and suggestions, information on organized rides, and stories from the road.
For those of you with an interest in biking, visit the website — it’s a fledgling club and could use some support from others who share the same interests.Now, for me, it’s a little hot for bicycling right now. However, this is a great time to start planning for fall trips and events.
Meanwhile, I did a little searching and found a listing of Maryland cycling events at ohbike.com. The Bicycle Trails and Advisory Group has a meeting in October (yep, that far away) and then there is the Potomac Trail Council with all kinds of information on places to ride bikes and hike.
