Who We Are
The Carolina Cyclers, formed in 1964, is the premier cycling club in the Midlands of South Carolina. Centrally located in Columbia, we offer a variety of cycling-related activities. We are dedicated to the promotion of cycling and sponsoring cycling-related activities for the enjoyment of our members and guests.
Our main activities are the weekend and weekday evening rides sponsored by the club. There are rides Saturday and Sunday geared for cyclists of all experience levels, from novices to aspiring or practicing racers. There are also evening rides for those who like to take advantage of the longer daylight hours of the summer season.

Events and Meetings: Come to our monthly club meetings on the fourth
Monday of the month at
7:00 pm. The April club meeting will be held Monday, April 22
at 7pm at Cycle Center on Harden St. The club will provide pizza and soft drinks
and El Burrito is a possibility! Hope to see you there. Bring a folding chair if
you have one!
Carolina Cyclers Club usually meets at Nick's
House of Pizza, 1082 Sunset Blvd., West Columbia, SC. Eat well with your favorite beverage, tell stories about
your recent bike adventure, hear crazy bike stories, plan your next bike ride,
make friends, learn stuff about cycling, and more... If we change the date or meeting place, the change will be posted on
the ride page calendar. Our president will be calling our monthly meetings at
some other venues during 2013 and posting changes on the ride calendar. Go to the
Rides page and view the CALENDAR for real time
information about the monthly meeting!
Overnight and Weekend Events: We don't just cycle in the immediate area. Occasionally we sponsor an out of town or weekend event. One tradition is the ride to Charleston and back. Several club members also participate in the many organized cycling rallies in the area such as the popular Assault on Mt. Mitchell and Bridge to Bridge events. We also organize camping/biking trips throughout the year.
Pedal Clips is the monthly newsletter
of the Carolina Cyclers. Each month there are exciting and
timely articles and stories of interest to
South Carolina Midlands cyclists.
