This is a Voluntary Group of Bicyclists who gather periodically to bicycle together in the Stateline area. Everyone who cycles on the rides is responsible for their own safety and their own decisions. There is no cost to participate.
All rides start and end at the Mill Street Parking Lot, 321 Broad St, Beloit, WI 53511, behind Bushel & Peck’s – map the location.
Our “Mantra” is NO BICYCLIST IS LEFT BEHIND
There are no dues or expenses associated with this group

The Saturday Ride is a blend of the 4 categories of cyclists above
If a cyclist is falling off the pace, another rider should join that rider and escort them back to home base, the Mill Street Parking Lot, 321 Broad St, Beloit, WI 53511, behind Bushel & Peck’s – map the location.
The decision as to the route to ride for that day is a “group decision”
