About the Club:
The Bedminster Flyers Cycling Club (BFCC) has been a recreational cycling club in the Somerset Hills area of NJ for over two decades. Members are called Flyers.
We are a road bike club. We ride on Monday and Wednesday evenings from April through September, starting from Natirar, at 2 Main St. in Peapack. In April and September, rides roll out at 5:30pm. From May through August, rides start at 6pm.
As many as 60 riders may show up on for rides. We break into 4 groups based on ability (fastest to slowest: A, B, C, D) and more as necessary for safety. Members frequently schedule ad-hoc rides from other starting points as well.
D-ride leaders will lead a pure D-ride group (Intro ride) on the 2nd and 4th Monday of each month. Beginners are encouraged to start by joining these rides, while more experienced D-riders can still expect to have ride leaders on Monday and Wednesday at a slightly faster pace as they now prefer.
The BFCC is a member of the League of American Bicyclists (LAB). In accordance with the LAB guidelines, each participant on Club rides must be a Club-member and sign a membership waiver. The guidelines do allow for one-time guests. After their first ride, guests must become members to continue riding with the Club. In addition, all riders must sign another waiver before every Club-sponsored or Club-promoted ride. To abide by the LAB insurance requirements, we must enforce the one-time guest rule and sign-in before every ride.
In addition to the weekly ride, we have several social and community events throughout the year. They are:
Ride Leader 101
Matheny Ride (Miles for Matheny course marking & support)
Detail can be found on the Club Activities tab.
The Club board has 5 positions. Board members are elected at the last meeting of the year by the members in attendance. All positions are for a full year and are open to any Club member.
