Welcome to the AMC Berkshire Chapter Bicycling Committee!

Bicycling Committee Co-Chairs: Brant Cheikes & Janine Papesh, email bicycling@amcberkshire.org

Your connection to recreational group bicycling on the roads and byways of the bucolic Pioneer Valley and Berkshires

Why ride with us? We are experienced cyclists who enjoy social, recreational rides in the range of 20-50 miles, speeds averaging around 12 mph, with rest stops and optional post-ride socials. We keep the group moving, but we're not racers. All our trip leaders are volunteers, trained by the AMC in group management, and trained by the Bicycling Committee leaders to have the skills needed to plan and run safe, enjoyable group bicycling trips. All AMC rides require advance registration. We pre-screen all riders to ensure comfort and safety.

WE ARE DONE FOR THE 2018 CYCLING SEASON!! We'll start posting our 2019 ride calendar sometime in March.
