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

We are the newest activity committee within the Berkshire Chapter. This year - 2018 - is our second season. So far we've run three rides - a spring warm-up ride in the Pioneer Valley area (June), a challenging ride in the Berkshires (July), and a lovely loop ride from Williamsburg to Ashfield. We are building our audience, and training new leaders. We're rolling!

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.

Check this page periodically for updates as the season progresses, or get on our e-mail list (instructions below). You can also search for trips by clicking here and selecting "Bicycling" as the Activity.
