Note that this is casual ride.  Some riders will go hard, but please make the ride whatever pace works for you.  With pleasant temperatures, I expect a big turnout.  Please come out to start your calendar year with a ride!

Please be ready to push off at 12:00. I will be there about 11:40 with waivers for the new year.  Also, we always take a nice, big group photo, like this one from 01 Jan 2017 (we canceled last year due to the extremely cold conditions).  See you on the 1st!


Please mark your calendar for December 11th 2018 for the Winchester Wheelmen Annual Banquet!  This year’s banquet will be held at Rock Harbor Golf Club in Winchester.

Please stay by for additional details.

For all other rides, there will refreshments and snacks at the end. There will also be food and drinks prior to the start of the ride.

This ride is for club members and their families and there is no charge to ride. You are more than welcome to pay your dues that day and ride. We will have membership forms available the morning of the ride. The cost is $20.00 and will cover your 2019 dues.

Cue sheets will be available morning of the ride, but the 25 miler and first part of the century takes you to the west side of I-81 and the 20, 37 and second half of the Century takes you east to Clarke County.


The Kid’s Club would like to thank everyone who came out for their benefit ride. This money goes a long way in helping the club maintain its presence in the community and work with area children in the areas of after school activities, education and building a positive role model.
