Bedminster Flyers Cycling Club
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 Far Hills Fairgrounds which is on Peapack Road, just up from Rt 202. 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.
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.
