There are a lot of great reasons to become a member of the Evanston Bicycle Club
  • We have rides nearly every day of the week from April through October, and plenty of rides from November through March. (Yes, we even ride in the Winter, conditions permitting!) 
  • Our rides are geared to your desire and ability. We offer rides ranging from very fast to casual, from routes of 100 miles to as few as 20 miles.
  • We stress safety. Our rides are intimate, usually in the neighborhood of 6 – 16 riders.  Each ride always has a Ride Leader and a “sweep” who ensures that no one ever gets left behind.  And if a rider runs into a problem, there’s always someone there to help out.
  • Many social events such as the Winter Dinner, the July Picnic, the Progressive Dinner, the Halloween Ride and Party, and the December Holiday Party.
  • 10% discount at many local bike shops. Just show your EBC membership card before you buy.
  • $10 rebate when you buy a new helmet.
  • A monthly newsletter that tells you about scheduled rides, special events, and cycling experiences.
  • Inexpensive rental of Trico Iron Case bicycle shipping boxes.
  • A list serve for getting last minute updates and discussing bicycle related topics by email. 
  • Informal meetings on the third Tuesday of every month. (7:30 PM at the Ladd Arboretum Center at Bridge Street and McCormick Ave., Evanston, IL)
  • Last but certainly not least, the camaraderie of over 500 Club members who share your enthusiasm and interest for bicycling!

The Evanston Bicycle Club has been a strong presence in Evanston and the North Shore for more than 40 years.  Our members are a very diverse group, whose cycling interests range from short recreational rides to ultra-marathon events, from rides to the coffeehouse to state-wide, week-long rides, and from loaded touring to criterium racing. Come ride with us!  

EBC meets at 7:30 PM on the third Tuesday of every month in the
