Welcome All Cyclists
Come Ride With Us!
Thank you for your interest in the Twin Cities Bicycling Club (TCBC). 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.
TCBC offers individual memberships for $30/year and household memberships for $45/year.
If you’d like to try out a ride before you join, you can pay a $3 guest fee and sign a waiver for each ride you go on.
Benefits of membership are many:
- Thousands of rides in Minnesota, Wisconsin and other states, with an online calendar and mileage tracking.
- Discounts at our sponsoring bike shops and informational presentations via our Bike U program.
- Medical and liability insurance for all members on TCBC rides.
- An awards program and annual banquet to highlight the accomplishments of our members.

The forecast sounds pretty nice for our big ride to kick off summer! (Will it ever get here?) We hope you can join us at our new starting location in Hugo. See the newsletter or the ride calendar for more info. You'll be going north on 61 in Hugo, and then turn right on 148th St, at the Speedway corner. We have permission to park at Hugo Elementary School and New Life Church next to it. Follow the TCBC signs!
Reminders: there will be satellites in the parking lot and very limited water available, so bring your own. Please buy something when using the rest stops along the route (convenience stores). And if enough people wear TCBC jerseys, maybe a group photo would be possible.
Please arrive in time to form into four groups for the leader briefing, which will start around 9:30 AM at the school.
See the ride calendar for GPS information.

Cedar Lake Trail closing starting May 13 till 2021
FROM A RECENT NEWS RELEASE: Leaders especially should take note of this. And some or all of the Kenilworth Trail will also be closed. This has come up fast and will seriously impact many trail users.
The Cedar Lake LRT Regional Trail will be closed beginning May 13 from Excelsior Boulevard in Hopkins east to France Avenue in St. Louis Park. The closure is due to Southwest Light Rail Transit construction and is expected to last through fall 2021.
A detour will be in place that utilizes the North Cedar Lake Regional Trail and the local bicycle network to connect users to the Midtown Greenway. There will be a detour around impacted areas in Minneapolis as well. See the Three Rivers Parks website.
The trail will be fully reconstructed upon completion of the project and will include grade-separated crossings at Beltline Boulevard, Wooddale Avenue and Blake Road.
