The Gainesville Cycling Club is a loosely organized group formed for the purpose of riding bikes! It was formed in 1980 with about 25 local riders. The club was incorporated in 1991. Turn the clock forward, and membership has grown to over 700 members. The club features a diverse group of cyclists ranging from commuters, sightseeing groups, tandem riders, all the way to amateur bike racers.
The club also organizes regular picnic and social events for it's members.
Our biggest member participation event of the year is the Gainesville Cycling Festival, a two day event which incorporates the Santa Fe Century and Horse Farm Hundred, and has raised more than $250,000 for a local charity (The Boys and Girls Club of Alachua County).
Our business affairs are handled by our Board of Directors. We hold an Annual Meeting towards the end of February or early in March each year.
We encourage all persons who ride bicycles for recreation and/or transportation, or who are interested in those activities, to join the club!
