Boston Bicycle Club

135 years ago today, February 11th, in 1878 (if you couldn’t figure out the math) the first bicycle club was formed in the United States, the “Boston Bicycle Club”. An awful lot has happened in cycling in that time, but one thing hasn’t changed. Riding with friends or in a group is still some of the most fun you can have on two wheels. Call up a friend and go for a ride today, or maybe you’re feeling ambitious, start your own bicycle club.
