Get to know Saratoga Cycling Club.
Our club offers group rides for cyclists of all abilities several days a week in the Spring, Summer, and Fall. Disciplines include road and cyclocross. We have rides that are perfect for beginners (usually 10-15 miles), enthusiasts (25-40 miles) and advanced riders (up to 100 miles). We also offer virtual winter training sessions through our club sponsor Elevate Cycles.
The goal of our cycling club is to provide a means to encourage the principles of safe cycling, teamwork, dedication, sportsmanship, cycling advocacy and community involvement through cycling. Participation in our club is open to everyone and is free of any club dues.
SCC is a free, non-dues club that is sustained by the efforts of volunteers who display an extraordinary amount of commitment and hard work, ensuring that our club is an asset to it’s members and the community.
The Saratoga Cycling Club is also comprised of club members who have advanced to the competition level and competed in regional and national events. Some members are also members of the Elevate Cycles Team, riding for our club sponsor.
