Welcome All Cyclists
Come Ride With Us!
TCBC is the largest recreational bicycling club in the Minneapolis-Saint Paul area. TCBC has rides and events for a range of skill levels. Most of our members are adults at an intermediate, non-racer level who enjoy the benefits of group riding. TCBC rides are open to members and non-members. We are a 501c3 non-profit organization that is operated primarily by volunteers.

Danger: Railroad Crossing!
by Pete Hawkins
One of the more serious road hazards we bicyclists face is when crossing railroad tracks. This danger has been recently confirmed by two experienced TCBC riders who sustained serious injuries when negotiating wet railroad tracks.
Trying out a Shorter Posting Window!
by Kate Kovar
TCBC currently requires ride leaders to submit a ride 84 hours in advance of the ride start time in order to be an official TCBC ride and appear on the ride schedule. This allows the ride to be reviewed and posted on our schedule so our members know in advance what rides are coming up. In recent years we have had over 2,000 rides posted in a calendar year!
Thoughts about Night Riding
by Dan Miller
TCBC offers two categories of night rides, N/B and N/C, in which members can participate. Their differentiation is a faster and slower average riding speed. Both require a front and back leader and the intent is to ride as a group. Ride length is limited to 25 miles or less. In addition to a helmet, bicycles need to be equipped with a front and rear light. As a member and ride leader who enjoys night riding, I thought it may be worth sharing a few observations learned over the years and encourage you to participate in what is becoming a more popular ride category.
