Supporters

Welcome to the Ashland Bike Club
 of Ashland, Massachusetts.
Come ride with us!  Everyone is welcome!




The Ashland Bike Club is a social bike riding club dedicated to building community, getting some healthy outdoor exercise and just having fun.  Everyone is invited to ride with our club whether you live in Ashland or not.  You'll never meet a friendlier, more supportive group of people.

We host rides every Saturday and Wednesday morning over some of the most scenic roads in Metrowest.  Both members and non-members are welcome to ride with us.  On Saturdays, we offer at least two different rides - a long ride and a short ride.  Our long rides are usually in the 20 to 30 mile range; our short rides usually are about 10 to 15 miles.

Our rides are conducted at a comfortable, easy pace (ok, we admit it, we're very slow) because we seek to be as inclusive as possible.  We do the best we can to keep the entire group together.  No one ever gets left behind.

To support less experienced riders, we offer regular rides on the Upper Charles Trail (aka the Milford Bike Path) that allow you to choose any distance you like without having to ride alongside cars or ride up or down challenging hills.

To see the schedule for upcoming rides, you can scroll further down this page to our club calendar (rides are usually added to the schedule about two days before the ride) or you can visit our "Ride Notices and Events" page to see the ride notices that are emailed to all club members.




Our club is first and foremost a chance for you to meet other bike riders and get out on scenic, well-designed routes.  Some of our members  also help us promote safer cycling and an enhanced cycling infrastructure including bike paths, bike lanes and other cycling facilities.



The current state of the bicycle infrastructure in Metrowest is deplorable and the Ashland Bike Club is committed to making things better for all cyclists.  If you can you tell what's wrong with this picture, you might just make a great cycling advocate.

The club is deeply committed to bicycle safety.  Safety talks are provided before every ride and our routes are planned to minimize the time we spend on busy roads.  You might find it useful to read what Massachusetts law has to say about your rights and responsibilities as a cyclist.  Click here for details.

If you're interested in learning more about the club or in joining the club, please send us an email at:  ashlandbikeclub@gmail.com or click the "Apply to Join Group" button on the page at this link.

Come ride with us!  You'll be glad you did.
