9 Benefits of Joining the Adirondack Foothills Cycling Club
Meet new friends and improve your skills! The biggest value of a riding club is safety in numbers. Cycling can be super-intimidating with the roads, cars, the complexity of the bikes, and how they handle. Being in a group can give a person an opportunity to learn in real-time.
Our cycling club is here for moral support and motivation. Sometimes cycling is hard. You can always get better and there is always new things to learn. A supportive group around you makes all aspects of the ride more enjoyable.
